Satellite launched

The Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center confirmed that China successfully launched the Yaogan XVI remote-sensing satellite at 12:06 am Sunday.

The satellite, launched from the center in northwest China's Gansu Province, was carried into orbit by a Long March-4C carrier rocket.

It has been designed for a variety of uses including technological experimentation, land resource surveying, estimating crop yields and disaster prevention and reduction.

Lawyer seeks redress

Li Zhuang, a former lawyer who had been jailed for encouraging a client to fabricate testimony, has lodged a complaint with the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP), the agency said Saturday.

Li, 51, submitted a written petition on Friday with the aid of lawyer Wang Shihua and Gong Ganghua, the elder brother of Li's former client Gong Gangmo.

The statement offered few details about the nature of the complaint but said the SPP will handle Li's petition in due course.

Li was charged with encouraging his client, then a high-profile defendant in Chongqing's fight against gangs, to lie about being mistreated while being held in custody.
