Attorney in the Speeding Case at Hebei University Receives Warning
A comprehensive report by Boxun News on November 2, 2010
The case of Li Qiming, the child of a high-ranking official who killed freshman Chen Xiaofeng on campus at Hebei University in a speeding car, gained new developments on the evening of November 1.

According to the disclosure from the blog of Wang Keqin, a reporter from China Economic Times, Zhang Kai, the attorney for the relatives of the deceased Chen Xiaofeng, was called in for a talk by the director of the law firm on November 1. The director asked lawyer Zhang Kai to terminate his representation in this case because the law firm has been cautioned by Beijing Bureau of Justice. When the director of the law firm gave the request Zhang Kai, Kai almost let out a cry.

On November 1 at 7 a.m., Director Liu of Baoding Traffic Police Division and clerks from Wangdu County (they are in charge of the case) went to relatives of Chen Xiaofeng and told them two things:

1.  The person who caused the accident demands an autopsy of Chen Xiaofeng’s body to determine the cause of death.

They wanted the relatives of Chen Xiaofeng to immediately respond to the request. “Do you agree or not agree?” The relatives of Chen Xiaofeng did not give an answer. The clerks in charge of the case demanded an answer must be given to them by tonight.

2.  The relatives can agree to settle the case through monetary compensation.
If they agree, they are free to apply for an amount.

The above information was collected from the blog of Wang Keqin, reporter from China Economic Times.
