(Bowen Press) Pregnant woman Zhang Li (pseudonym), who lives in the northern city of Xining City, suffered a miscarriage after being summoned and questioned by local police for nearly eight hours.

Zhang Li applied for compensation but was rejected. On June 29, the Xining Intermediate Court ordered the local security bureau to compensate her 233.10 RMB for medical expenses.

The local security bureau questioned Zhang Li for possessing forged invoices. Zhang Li claimed that police ignored her pregnancy and shackled her hands and feet to a chair during her interrogation.

That afternoon, with nothing to eat or drink during the long hours of her interrogation, Zhang Li felt dizzy and nauseous, was sweating, had a rapid heartbeat, stomach pain and started to bleed.

Authorities concluded that local police conducted a legitimate exercise of authority with no evidence of wrongdoing, and rejected Zhang Li’s application for compensation.

Zhang Li appealed the decision to Xining Intermediate Court.

On June 29, the court decided to compensate Zhang Li 233.10 RMB, but rejected her other compensation requests. That amounts to about $35.
