China Chongqing Redress

In this photo taken Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012, Li Zhuang, an ex-lawyer who claims he was framed and wrongfully jailed for 18 months, is surrounded by journalists in front of the Chongqing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality. With China's new leaders freshly installed in power, authorities are turning their attention to tying up loose ends in the sprawling, scandal-ridden city once ruled by populist politician Bo Xilai before his downfall buffeted the leadership transition. In the past two weeks, authorities in Chongqing released Li, a lawyer disbarred after being convicted of having one of his clients lie in court, as well as a village official who had been sent to a labor camp for criticizing Bo.
