Hunan Changsha Prison is the first trial prison for holding criminals who commit crimes taking advantage of duty. At present, about 140 prisoners are held here.

When a new prisoner saw other prisoners were given two pieces of cucumber and one egg every day, he said to the police, "I am an official of vice provincial department level, so I should enjoy nutrimeals in accordance with my position."  

The police told him, all the prisoners are treated equally in this prison.
