Perhaps February, Perhaps March
'Rapist' Zhan Ranmeng was sentenced two years in jail by the People's Court of Dongzhi County, Chizhou, Anhui Province. The court found he along with two other men raped a woman in one day of, 'perhaps February, perhaps March' of 2008.
The defendants insisted on their innocence.
When news media questioned the verdict, the court replied that it had been a common practice of the court (to use vague phrases in the verdict) when the police could not provide accurate information before the trail starts. The head judge of the case, Judge Mr. Gao Guiwei refused to comment on the verdict.
