China Lovers Fined For a Hug by Plain Clothes Police

Posted by Author on September 6, 2007

Two young lovers fined 5,000 yuan (329 pounds) by three plain clothes police for hugging in public on the Chinese version of Valentine’s Day, in central province of Hunan, according to a Reuters’ report on Sep. 5, 2007.

Reuters quotes the Chinese media report that “a clerk at the police station” said the three police were “punished”, but did say how.

Here’s some details from Reuters:

“As we hugged each other, three policemen came and separated us so they could ask questions. They brought us to the police station and didn’t free us until we paid a 5,000 yuan fine,” the paper quoted female detainee, Xiao Hong, as saying in an Internet posting on a local news portal.

The police were in plain clothes and many other couples were out strolling on the evening of “Qi Xi” — a local festival often dubbed Chinese Valentine’s Day, the Beijing News said in a separate report.

Internet users poured derision on the police, which “forced officials to look into the case”, the paper said.
