EDITORIAL: Reform in China is but a dream

There could not be a better metaphor for China’s ridiculous claims to judicial process than the example this week of a zoo in Luohe that has apparently been trying to pass off a large furry dog as a lion and another dog as a wolf, among other questionable exhibits. The Tibetan mastiff is big — and furry — but it is clearly not feline.

Xi’s government holds up the constitution of the People’s Republic of China in an attempt to prove it has a legal regime and its citizens have rights. However, like the dog puffed up to pass as a lion, China’s judicial system is a poor imitation of the real thing.
