Murder case throws up morality questions
The death of Jiang Ge, a 24-yearold Chinese postgraduate stabbed by the ex-boyfriend of her roommate Liu Xin last year in Japan, has again triggered an uproar in China after a Chinese media outlet organized a meeting between Liu and the victim’s mother. While a public petition called for death penalty to the suspect ahead of his trial next month, Liu – who reportedly kept the door shut disregarding Jiang’s cries for help during the tragedy, ignored Jiang’s mother’s plea for evidence and flaunted her cushy life on social media – is in the glare. Is Liu the right target at the moment? The Global Times has collected three views on the issue.
