China continues to be a Champion of Human Rights

Nobody has the right to speak ill of China's judicial sovereignty.
We express our strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition over the groundless British accusations.

British Anger
Akmal Shaikh, 53, a father-of-three from London, was executed in China after being convicted of drug smuggling despite claims he was mentally ill.
In a statement issued after the execution, the Chinese Embassy said Mr Shaikh's rights "were properly respected and guaranteed" and British concerns were "duly noted and taken into consideration".
It said: "As for his possible mental illness which has been much talked about, there apparently has been no previous medical record."
A report from the official Chinese news agency Xinhua said that China's Supreme People's Court had not been provided with any documentation proving that Mr Shaikh had a mental disorder.
In its statement, the Chinese Embassy said Mr Shaikh was convicted of "serious" drug trafficking.
"The amount of heroin he brought into China was 4,030g, enough to cause 26,800 deaths, threatening numerous families," it said.

Mr Shaikh's family said he had been delusional and duped into a carrying a suitcase that did not belong to him when he was found with 4kg of heroin in Urumqi, north-west China, in September 2007.
His daughter has said drug smugglers in Poland convinced him they would make him a popstar in China.

Marjorie Wallace, chief executive of the mental health charity Sane, said the Chinese authorities had showed not only a lack of compassion, but a "profound ignorance" about how a mental illness such as bipolar disorder could affect a person's sense of reality.

"Mr Shaikh's lack of official medical records is no excuse for failing to give him a psychiatric assessment or offer him the treatment he needed," she added.

So China is pretty cool you guys. They TAKE PROFOUND CRIMINAL MASTERMINDS off of the streets and keep families safe. They are the GLORIOUS PROTECTOR OF THE HUMAN RACE and very humble about it. They're also VERY TRANSPARENT ABOUT THE WAY THEY HANDLE EXECUTIONS. Remember folks: you can't judge. It's a whole different culture. We can't judge. We're westerners.

    who cares about that, let's talk about how China has officially done the funniest thing ever
    BBC wrote:
    A shopping centre in China's Hebei province has built a car park with wider spaces that it says is designed especially to suit women drivers.

    The women-only car park in Shijiazhuang city is also painted in pink and light purple to appeal to female tastes.

    Official Wang Zheng told AFP news agency the car park was meant to cater to women's "strong sense of colour and different sense of distance".

    The parking bays are one metre (3ft) wider than normal spaces, he said.

    The Wanxiang-Tiancheng shopping centre had also "installed signs and security monitoring equipment that corresponded more to women's needs", he said.

    The Global Times website says female parking attendants have been trained to help guide women drivers into their parking spaces. The bays also have extra lighting.

    Driving in China is a dangerous activity, with more than 200 deaths in road accidents each day last year, AFP reports, citing police statistics.

    My mother picks up a friend an I from an event, as we try to exit we are abruptly and clumsily cut off.

    Mother: "Shit"

    Friend: "Awful driver"

    Me (leaning in my seat): "Of course. It is a woman."

    They laugh then lapse into an uncomfortable silence.

    The news of Akmal Shaikh's execution is being carried in state-run newspapers and on state-controlled websites here in China. Most of the articles focus on the comments made by the Foreign Ministry spokesman earlier on, when she said the judicial process was legal and fair.
    It's interesting to see what ordinary Chinese citizens are saying on the discussion boards. Most of these websites are state-controlled and subject to censorship but overwhelmingly the comments on those discussion sites are supportive of the Chinese government's decision.
    One says: "This is all a show by the British government. If it had really wanted to save Akmal Shaikh it would have negotiated in secret with the Chinese." Another says: "If someone commits a crime on our territory we have the right to punish them."
    There's very little discussion of the mental health issue on the websites and discussion boards. In terms of the discussions here in China, it doesn't seem to be registering.
