Controversy over judicial appointment system at Guangdong People's Congress meeting
The China Media Project reports that Guangzhou delegate Li Yongzhong (李永忠) (also a National People's Congress delegate) criticized local judicial protectionism and called for centralization of appointment and finances in the court system (as opposed to the current system, where such matters are handled at the same administrative level as the court in question). This led to his being interrupted by another member of his own delegation who said (possibly shouted), "These are not the views of our delegation," and left the room. The full report is here.
