Judge rejects evidence obtained by unlawful interrogation in Zhang Guoxi case
Check out this article by Jeremy Daum at the web site of the US-Asia Law Institute, with a set of very useful links as well. As Daum notes, rejecting evidence obtained by unlawful interrogation (I'll call it that instead of torture, since it didn't involve the kind of extreme measures - waterboarding, lit cigarettes on the skin, etc. - that we normally associate with the term) is exactly what judges in China are supposed to do according to applicable rules, but in practice it's far from becoming a ho-hum dog-bites-man story.
