The answer is: 1 rmb.

Three women have been sentenced to a one-year term of "re-education through labor" by local police authorities in Changchou, su province, according to Chinese media, because apparently "they failed to pay for their bus fares in Beijing" in 2009. The bus fare cost 1 rmb at that time.

The real "crime" they committed, the three women claim, is that they "dared to" go to Beijing for petition and air their grievances of local authorities.

I saw someone posted a thread about black jails. They are not that uncommon, aren't they?
We are all prisoners of our own device.
