China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

A man in Guang­dong province re­ceived com­pen­sa­tion from a court that wrongly con­victed him of run­ning a gam­bling house and jailed him for 289 days. Po­lice had de­tained the man, sur­named Liu, in Fe­bru­ary 2013, and he was sen­tenced to 10 months in prison by a Shunde district court in May. Liu then ap­pealed to the Shunde Peo­ple’s In­ter­me­di­ate Court, which found Li not guilty on Novem­ber 15. In the claim Liu asked for more than 200,000 yuan in com­pen­sa­tion.
