According to local media report [zh], a Chongqing city resident Fang Hung was sentenced to labour education camp in April 2011 for posting a microblog that mocked at the city's party leader Bo Xilai, the son of a Chinese Communist Party revolutionary elder Bo Yibo.
The mircoblog said:
The Chinese pronunciation of Bo XiLai is similar to erection (bo-zi-lai) while Wang Lijun is the deputy mayor of Chongqing city.
The microblog is a satirical story about Bo Xilai's crude campaign against corruption in Chongqing city and his scapegoat lawyer Li Zhuang, who was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment in 2010 for “inciting a client to fake testimony” when he was acting as a defending lawyer for a convicted gangster from Chongqing back in 2009. The public in general believes that Li's arrest and conviction was a direct order from Bo Xilai and that Li was being framed.
In April 2011, Li faced another charge of similar nature – that he was involved in fraud and enticed a witness in Shanghai back in 2008 to fabricate evidence. Before the trial several law professors spoke publicly that were Mr. Li convicted, it would be impossible for other lawyers to defend their clients. Eventually the Chongqing Prosecutor dropped the charge.
The above mentioned microblog was posted by Fang Hung, a 49-year-old retired civil servant in Chongqing on April 21, 2011 when Li Zhuang's second charge was still on trial. Chongqing police demanded Fang to delete his post on the next day and detained him in the police station. On April 24, the police and labour education committee decided to sentence him to one year labour education under the charge of “fabricating fact and disrupting the social order”. By the time Fang's son received the labour education notice on April 25 and it was already too late for him to hire a lawyer and appeal for the decision. According to the police regulation, the appeal has to be filed within 48 hours upon the labour education document was released. Below is a copy of the police document:
