It is obvious that application of law in China is done in the fashion of a kangaroo court or in the fashion of the West West justice of hanging a chap at the nearest tree and lynching him! The inference can be drawn from the fact that while the trial has not yet been done, Xinhua (the official mouthpiece of the CCP) has already pronounced the judgement of guilty etc. It is also drawn from the fact that the lawyers are Govt appointed and the accused has not been permitted their own lawyer. That the Communist party is totally corrupt is of no doubt since they are taking great pains to avoid inference to corruption that is rampant amongst the leaders of the Chinese Communist Party apparatchiks. That is why the lawyers have been appointed by the Govt to 'defend' the accused so that the issue of corruption that may implicate other top honchos of the Communist clique is not raised. It is interesting that anyone who has praised Bo 'vanished'! The Communists of China are really making hay while the worker and peasants suffer and toil to bring China's economy skyhigh! What a way to go!
