外文标题：Chinese gang-rape survivor pardons ‘rapists’ after compensation offer
BEIJING: A Chinese gang-rape survivor has pardoned three of her five alleged rapists, including the teenaged son of a military general, after they agreed to pay her compensation of 450,000 yuan (over Rs 46 lakh).
The Beijing Evening News reported this quoting the trio's lawyer. He said the three had also apologized.
The pardon has become controversial as People's Liberation Army general Li Shuangjiang 17-year-old son, Li Tiangyi, is among the three. The teenager's mother, Meng Ge, is a singer.
The agreement has raised questions whether rich-poor gap should determine punishment for crimes.
But it is subjected to judicial approval. The trial in the case concluded in August and the verdict is awaited.
Meng insisted her son was innocent and denied the defendants had apologized.
"The boys didn't plead guilty. None of them said 'I'm guilty','' Meng said.
But the lawyer, Zhao Yunheng, maintained the boys had accepted the charge and confessed.
Earlier reports suggested three of the accused had confessed to raping the girl while two others, including Li Tiangyi, had pleaded not guilty.
The local media said the three had entered into the arrangement without clarifying the stand of the remaining two.

Unfortunate but true. Money has super natural powers & can make any one dance to its tune. As much as we would like to lead a life of principles , Money tries to sway us away from the right path . The choice is ours to follow , The right path they say leads to a place which we say is Heaven , the wrong one leads to Hell which every one dreads. However No one is yet to come back from both these places to let us know of their experience .

Money is everything?? The Rapists had confessed to rapping the girl, then?? why they will not be punished? It's very bad example . Who can say, if these rapists will not attack again on any other girl? very unfortunate!

China too seems to be following the law being practiced in the muslim countries! May be their close association with Pakistan has led into this! In Pakistan when an American embassy member shot two Pakistanis, he was let free after paying compensation and American green cards for the family members!!

Not acceptable. This is degeneration of Chinese society. This is a hint that China is moving towards Capitalism.

An compensation that distracts the proceedings is also a crime. A Chinese woman should also be convicted
indians should STFU on this matter , Indian soldiers are humiliated by chinese soldiers everyday and indians can't do anything about it , stupid keyboard fighters .
