China sentences man to death in ant case

What more can said about this than has been said?
Seems like the punishment is a bit severe!

Until Next Time

They weren't just overpriced. He claimed they had medicinal qualities they did not. He also made around $385 million from the sales. I am certainly not justifying the execution, but this sort of thing is a big problem in China, and one the government (quite obviously) takes very seriously. My firm has helped in defending foreigners who have gotten caught on the wrong side of Chinese law in similar cases and the law is applied the same way to foreigners. China is NOT a place to go if you are planning to engage in fraud.

I don't disagree with you at all.
