The Authority Ringleaders Behind The Petitioner-Interception Lawsuit Escape Justice
Posted by Author on February 7, 2013
In 2012, China’s first lawsuit from intercepting and detaining petitioners got widespread media attention. On February 5th in Beijing, ten accused offenders were all given jail terms ranging from six months to two years. However, the petitioners were dissatisfied with the verdict, as the court ignored the ringleaders’ liabilities. They decided to continue to appeal.
According to Radio Free Asia, the petitioner victim were angry with the verdict. They felt it dissociated the defendants from the authorities.
Sang Shuling, one of the victims, said that the real decision behind these interceptions is the authorities.
The judgment has sparked heated discussions among netizens.
A netizen said, “Whom did these mafia-style security guards serve? Clearly, they worked for Henan local authorities. And so, the criminal mastermind should be some officials.
It’s injustice of the law to neglect real criminals but only punish the citizens who want to protest.”
