?yabo亚博体育下载419品茶微信s visits with people involved in the case, that the 2007 ruling was based on the wrongful application of laws.
The 1999 ruling will also be reviewed at the rehearing, the court added.
The case received national attention in April when a local newspaper reported several gangs, including one led by Sun, were?yabo亚博体育下载419
smashed in a crackdown against organized crimes in Kunming. Sun was then detained for the gang activities.
The case triggered widespread public concern over possible corruption in the judicial and prison syst
?yabo亚博体育下载419品茶微信ems after follow-up stories discovered Sun was the same man convicted of the multiple charges in 1
998 and that he had therefore mysteriously escaped death and been living as a free man.
Sun became shareholder of several enterprises and controlled many bars after leaving prison.?yabo亚博体育下载419
As the controversies were spreading on Chinese social media, a central inspection group to fight gangrelated cri
?yabo亚博体育下载419品茶微信mes arrived in Yunnan, and demanded a thorough investigation of how Sun appeared to have escaped justice.
In an early release of the inspection group in May, 11 people in Yunnan, including a former senior prison official and a local high cou?yabo亚博体育下载419
rt judge, had been detained over their possible roles in helping Sun escape capital punishment.
By Friday, the number of officials involved in Sun’s case had increased to 20, according to the official release.
?yabo亚博体育下载419品茶微信Sun’s case also sparked public speculation because of his various identiti
es and family connections, who were widely believed to have sheltered his legal activities.
However, specific information about Sun’s family released on Friday shows that statements previously spread online were u?yabo亚博体育下载419
ntrue, especially the speculation that Sun’s biological father was a very influential person.
?yabo亚博体育下载419品茶微信Chen Yue, Sun’s biological father, joined the Kunming Public Security Bureau in 1 973 aft

yabo亚博体育下载后花园Other challenges include the expense-Xu says that he has spent more than 100,000 yuan on his hobby so far.
According to Tang, astronomy has grown in popularity in China in recent years thanks to the gro
wing achievements of China’s astronomers. One of the most recent achievements was taking part in shoyabo亚博体育下载后花园品茶微信
oting the historic first image of a black hole in April. The project was a global effo
yabo亚博体育下载后花园rt that involved more than 200 astronomers worldwide, including 16 from the Chinese mainland.
Growing income levels have also enabled enthusiasts to pursue the costly hobby, he adds.
Looking ahead, Xu hopes to be able to capture photos of even better quality. To do so, he nyabo亚博体育下载后花园品茶微信
oted, would require him to shoot in an environment where there is less light pollution.
“Within the next five years, I plan to have a remote platform installed in a place with less light pollution. Unfortunately, there
yabo亚博体育下载后花园will have to be a trade-off-I won’t be able to be as closely involved in the process because of its remoteness,” he says.
According to Xu, many astronomy enthusiasts set up their telescopes and cameras at f
acilities in Yunnan province and Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, where there is minimal light pollution.yabo亚博体育下载后花园品茶微信
These equipment will then be connected to the internet and looked after by caretakers, allowing them to take photos remot
ely via their computers. The annual fee of renting a space at this facility is around 20,000 yuan, Xu adds.
yabo亚博体育下载后花园品茶微信To spread his love for astronomy, Xu is also looking to organize classes for young people. Tang suppo
rts this cause, noting that schools in countries overseas place a greater emphasis on natural science than those in
China. As a result, ordinary people here know less about astronomy than their peers abroad.yabo亚博体育下载后花园
“Whenever you look up at the stars, you understand how sho
yabo亚博体育下载后花园品茶微信rt our lives are and how insignificant we are. The more you learn about astron
