“Summer Snow” in Chinese culture is meaning for miscarriage of justice.

In Aug 2020, the High People’s Court of eastern China’s Jiangxi province acquitted Zhang Yuhuan, who had spent more than 26 years in prison for the murder of two boys. He is believed to be China's longest-serving wrongfully convicted inmate.







Zhang was 26 when he was arrested for the killing of two children from his village in 1993. Over the next 27 years, he wrote more than 400 letters from prison, asking for his case to be retried. He also asserted that his admission of guilt was made under duress. Police officers tortured him for at least six days after his arrest and he still has scars from bites after they turned dogs on him.

Critics point out that Zhang’s story hint at deeper-rooted problems within China’s criminal justice system, such as the police state placing 'stability maintenance' above everything else, coupled with the central control of judiciary system.


 


常言道:六月飞雪,必有冤情。

古有窦娥,今有玉环,夏日飞雪,冤假错案。 2020年夏,江西省高级人民法院宣告无罪释放张玉环。他因谋杀两个男孩而被判入狱近27年,是公开已知中国服役时间最长的冤假错案囚犯。
张在1993年被指控在其村庄杀死两个孩子而被捕时年仅26岁。在接下来的27年中,他从监狱里写了400多封信,要求重审此案。 他还声称,他认罪是在胁迫下作出的, 警察在他被捕后对他进行了至少六天的折磨,并且放狗咬他,至今可见当年狗咬的伤疤。
