Vicious gang trials under way

Hundreds of local citizens have been lining up for seats to hear the trials of several "abhorrent" organized gang cases.

The trial at Chongqing No 1 Intermediate Court began yesterday for gang leader Yang Tianqing, 35, from Chongqing, and eight other members of Yang's "mafia-style gang".

Given the large number of the accused and the multiple charges, the trial will take more than two days to conclude, said Wei Jie, officer of the court's media office.

People from Chongqing are rushing to sit in on the trial. Though the 300 seats in the courtroom were fully occupied by locals and media, many were waiting anxiously outside.

"They hacked my brother to death in broad daylight and in a crowded street. They are extremely cruel," said Liang Yifu, the elder brother of Liang Yiping, who allegedly fell victim to the gang.

The younger Liang was assaulted at a parking lot in Beibei district about 3 pm on June 26. He died about 11 pm in hospital the same day.

Elder Liang said his late brother owned and operated Qianle Club with Li Xianguang, 49, a suspect standing trial yesterday, but the partnership broke up due to commercial conflicts.

Local newspaper Chongqing Daily yesterday reported Li offered money and asked Yang to amputate Liang Yiping's legs. The gang boss then ordered Zeng Chuan, another suspect standing trial yesterday, to "do the job".

But Li denied the allegation in court, saying his confession to the public security bureau was collected through torture.
