* China labour camp victim sues local authorities

BBC: “A Chinese woman is suing a local authority who sent her to a labour camp for the loss of her personal freedom.

Tang Hui points out Zhuzhou Baimalong Labour Camp

Tang Hui was sent to a re-education camp by Yongzhou’s local authority for “disturbing social order” last August, state-run news agency Xinhua reported.

She had been campaigning for harsher punishments for the seven men who raped and kidnapped her daughter, and forced her daughter to work as a prostitute.

Her case sparked a public outcry, and she was released after nine days.

Tang Hui is suing the Yongzhou authorities for 1,463.85 yuan ($236, £152) for her detention, Xinhua news agency reported.

She had taken her case to court after the Yongzhou re-education-through labour commission rejected her demand for compensation, Xinhua added.”
