On Dec 15, 2014, the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Regional Higher Peoples Court overturned Huugjilts previous conviction and ruled he was not guilty of rape and murder, saying that the facts of his case were unclear and evidence was inadequate. [Photo/Xinhua]HOHHOT – Twenty-seven officials were penalized over the wrongful conviction and execution of a man 20 years ago, authorities in north Chinas Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region said in a statement Sunday night.
One of the blacklisted officials responsible for the wrongful conviction of Huugjilt, Feng Zhiming, was suspected of job-related crimes and was subject to further investigation, it said.
Feng, formerly deputy chief of the Xincheng District branch of the public security bureau of the regional capital Hohhot, may face criminal charges, according to the statement.
The other 26 officials received administrative penalties including admonitions and record of demerit.
On the blacklist were 11 former police officers with the public security bureau of Hohhot and its Xincheng District branch, including Wang Zhi, former chief of the bureau.
Seven were former officials with the peoples procuratorate of Hohhot, including Wen Da, former chief procurator.
Five were former officials with the regions higher peoples court, and three were from the intermediate peoples court in Hohhot.Hugjiltus mother, Shang Aiyun, holds a photo of her son, who was wrongfully executed 18 years ago.
