One of the 20 people sentenced for last year's fire at China Central Television's new headquarters has filed an appeal against the verdict and three others are set to follow suit, Mirror Evening News reported on Tuesday.

Li Junyi, deputy manager of the construction project's security department, who was sentenced to three and half years in prison on May 10, has signed official documents for the appeal.

Li's lawyer, Jin Xuekong, said his client had only followed a routine procedure in signing the paper for the fireworks display, without any subjective intentions.

Li Xiaohua, Liu Jun and Gao Hong, who were also found responsible for the fire and sentenced, also said they will appeal.
