Westerners don't call all convicted people ( in jail or dead) dissidents even if they are in China.

Example, those chop chop killers of small kids in school are called killers and not dissidents. If the convicted crime is a matter of political conscience then they are called dissidents.

Oh please, Harry Wu was convicted of statutory rape. The western media just don't call convicted people dissident in their own country, hell, they don't call anyone dissident in their own country. But they won't hestitate calling anyone dissident in China or other unfriendly states, convicted or not.

There are lots of people with the same name Harry Wu.
Maybe The Harry Wu that is called dissident is a different one.

Lol. And who in China use the name Harry? Go look at Harry Wu's bio, as he was a teacher in China convicted of having sex with his underaged student. The "leading dissident" no doubt. He was also caught and convicted of attempting to enter China with a fake visa.

American citizen Harry Wu (Wu Hongda) himself chose his own attorneys from a list of law offices provided by the American Embassy in China in accordance with the relevant regulations about attorneys' qualifications set in Chinese laws.

The Information Office of Chinese State Council stated the fact in a long commentary entitled "Safeguarding Human Rights or Interfering in the Internal Affairs" of China, released today to refute the US State Department Human Rights Report for 1995.

Wu was once convicted of theft and rape and punished according to law. Shortly after he went to …

No.

Zhai alegedly committed a crime - it was reported and he was arrested.

The Chinese press either misunderstood, misrepresented, or relied solely on the spin Zai's lawyer was putting on what the charges meant.

Stern Hu and the Rio Tinto boys were arrested for committing economic crimes. So, how did your Australian press spin that one?

They were initially detained without specific charges, and in the context of the failed Rio Tinto takeover, and price negotiations in which China wasn't getting what they wanted.

It's the lack of transparency in China's legal process that encourages speculation.

That's not the case here - the Chinese press simply got it wrong.

Are you trying to retry the case or deny the conviction? There are plenty of "dissidents" celebrated in the west who are convicted criminals in China.
