Human Rights Violations In China

A letter from Amnesty International imparts the following:-

Every year, it is estimated nearly 10,000 men, women and children have their most fundamental right - the right to life - violated when they are sentenced to death and executed by China's barbaric criminal justice system. China kills more of its citizens every year through execution than the rest of the world combined.

When China controversially won the right to host the 2008 Olympic Games, both Chinese and Olympic officials claimed that respect for human rights would improve as a result.
Still waiting.
