When China began streaming trials online

[T]rials [are] being streamed via the new website tingshen.court.gov.cn. Some live, some pre-recorded. […] There are split screens revealing different perspectives – of defendants, judges and lawyers. Some trials can also be played back well after the original appearance date. […] According to Zhou Qiang, the head of China’s Supreme People’s Court, the streaming site will “better safeguard people’s right to know and supervise” but its value could go well beyond that, by helping Chinese citizens get a glimpse of what’s actually going on inside their country, beyond the filter of state-controlled media. – Stephen McDonell, BBC News http://ift.tt/2dEZFTp
