Here is a very interesting post about the reality of Chinese law. Excerpt from here:

No day passes by without one of these fine examples of how the Sino-nazi legal system works. And these are only the rare cases that make the newspapers. We should give them the Olympics again, don’t you think?

From South China Morning Post:

Eight lawyers in Heilongjiang who were brutally beaten by court officials while trying to attend a trial on January 24 are still waiting for an apology that might never come.
