Tiger Zhou sent to prison [Copy link] 中文

Rank: 4

Post time 2008-9-29 16:00:03 |Display all floors
Zhou Zhenglong, the farmer who forged photos to support his claim of discovering an endangered South China Tiger in Shaanxi, was found guilty of fraud and illegal possession of a firearm yesterday. The Xunyang County sentenced him to two and half years in jail plus a 2,000-yuan fine. He also has to return the 20,000 yuan prize he received for his photos from the local government.

Hao Jinsong, the lawyer who sued Zhou last year for "depriving his right to know" was kept out of court during yesterday's trial. A photo showing Hao holding up an umbrella reading "Zhou Zhenglong=Scapegoat" appears in the newspaper.The court also denied the request of Zhou's wife to observe the trial.

Although Zhou testified that he concocted the fake photos on his own, Internet opinion doubts that a farmer who doesn't even know how to use a computer could have created a photo professional enough to fool the experts.

He was not the only one who said that those photos were real.

Without that support from local officials and so-called experts, Zhou's lie with so many loopholes would have been exposed as a joke right away.

This is even more ridiculous.

Ridiculous! Use people's power but abuse it!
在前日庭审现场,周正龙的辩护律师张勇并没有为周正龙做无罪辩护,面对公诉方的指控,张勇辩护的第一句就是:“我们认为指控周正龙诈骗罪和非法持有弹药罪是成立的。”
