Lawyers in gang rape trial pun­ished

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

Six lawyers in­volved in the case of Li Tianyi, son of fa­mous PLA singer Li Shuangjiang, have re­ceived dis­ci­plinary pun­ish­ment, the web­site of Le­gal Daily re­ported on Thurs­day. Li, 17, was sen­tenced at Bei­jing court in Septem­ber to 10 years for gang rape. Be­fore the trial, Li’s lawyers posted on­line that Li was in­no­cent and viewed the case as pros­ti­tu­tion, which an­gered the com­plainant’s at­tor­ney. The two sides later had a de­bate on­line. Many de­tails about the de­fen­dants and the vic­tim were dis­closed, and some spe­cific pro­cesses of the trial were also re­leased by the lawyers.
