Village official appeals despite release from labor camp


08:48, November 29, 2012

CHONGQING, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- A village official in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality on Wednesday appealed against a two-year sentence of re-education through labor despite being released after serving little more than a year of his term in a labor camp.

The appeal came nine days after Ren Jianyu, an official in Pengshui County, was freed and eight days after a local court dismissed his father's appeal on his behalf against the imprisonment.

Ren, 25, was arrested on Aug. 17, 2011 after forwarding and commenting on more than 100 pieces of "negative information" and given a two-year term in a labor camp for "incitement to subvert state power" without a court process a month later.

The Chongqing municipal re-education through labor committee reviewed the imprisonment, however, and freed Ren on Nov. 19, saying the punishment was "improper."

A day later, the Chongqing No. 3 intermediate people's court rejected the father's appeal filed in August this year, saying that "the appeal should have come within three months after the re-education term was given."
