Wang Jianxun, a professor at the Chinese University of Political Science and Law, said the verdict amounted to "legal regression".
"The legal system clearly has taken the side of the urban management," Wang said. "This is an unjust verdict."

We hope Zhang and her son will find the strength to move on and rebuild their lives in the memory of Xia.
