Here's an update ...|
A foreigner who slapped a 6-year-old boy at a Shanghai airport luggage carousel has been detained for 10 days and fined 500 yuan ($82.45), police said Friday.
The woman slapped the boy after he accidentally hit her with a luggage cart, the Pudong International Airport branch of the Shanghai Municipal Public Security Bureau announced through its Sina Weibo account on Friday.
A female witness posted an account on Weibo saying the woman, who spoke French, at first denied slapping the boy to a crowd of about 30 people who had gathered to criticize her.
After admitting her behavior, she tried to solve the problem with 50 yuan but the boy's family refused the money. They called the police.
The witness said the boy, a native of Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, the woman and herself had all just flown from Sri Lanka to Shanghai, arriving about noon on Thursday at Pudong International Airport. She posted one photograph of a middle-aged foreign woman and another showing the boy's face red after slapping.
A person who assaults a person younger than 14 must be detained no fewer than 10 days and no longer than 15 days, according to the Law on Penalties for Administration of Public Security implemented in 2006. The assailant must also pay a fine between 500-1,000 yuan
The woman, who lives in China, is unemployed, a Pudong airport police officer told the Global Times on Friday. He asked not to be named and refused to release any further details.
Looks like the French woman was given only minimal punishment for an assault charge against a child. Back home in France, I am sure she will receive even more severe punishment. ....
It's a SHAME that China continues to be usually FRIENDLY to foreigners and treat them LENIENTLY and BETTER than their own Chinese !!
TRUE SHAME, CHINA ! TRUE SHAME !
