From this article [ft.com],
US lawmakers accused Yahoo of giving false information to Congress and asked that chief executive Jerry Yang appear before a committee to explain the internet search company's role in the imprisonment of a Chinese dissident.

Aparently, "a human rights group, released documents that ~ showed that Chinese police had written to Yahoo specifying they sought evidence about Mr Shi in a case of 'illegally providing state secrets to foreign entities', a charge often invoked against political dissidents."
