Weibo transcript of Peter Humphrey trial

British corporate investigator Peter Humphrey and his wife and business partner Yu Yingzeng were sentenced on August 8th to 30 months and two years in prison respectively on charges of illegally obtaining personal information about Chinese citizens. I hope to have some commentary up shortly, but first I want to read the trial transcript, which was posted by the Shanghai No. 1 Intermediate People's Court on its Weibo site. I've collected all 31 entries (they are graphic files in jpg and png format) and put them in a zip file, available here.

Interesting that Peter Humphrey spoke English at the trial. Do you believe the translation was reasonable? Would Peter Humphrey have selected the translator?

I have no way of knowing how good the translation was. I don't know whether Humphrey was able to select his own translator.
