Man appeals to court for retrial over selling parrots
    2018-07-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A MAN who had been sentenced to two years in prison after he was convicted of trading endangered parrots appealed to Shenzhen Intermediate People’s Court again Monday, requesting the court revoke the verdict and acquit him, sznews.com reported.

The man, identified as Wang Peng, was initially given a five-year sentence and a fine of 3,000 yuan (US$454.33) by the Bao’an District People’s Court in March last year for illegally selling two endangered parrots to a friend. An additional 45 parrots were also seized from his apartment.

Wang lodged an appeal to the intermediate court after receiving the first verdict. The intermediate court gave a second verdict March 30 this year, shortening Wang’s prison sentence to two years but keeping the fine the same.

Arrested in his apartment May 17, 2016, Wang has been released after serving his sentence. Xu Xin, Wang’s defense lawyer, said Wang’s appeal for a retrial is not only to prove his innocence, but also to prompt a revision of the judicial interpretation and improvements to the wildlife protection system.

According to the petition drafted by Xu, Wang neither disapproves of wildlife protection nor animal welfare. What he hopes for is a balance between humanity and nature, and human rights and animal welfare.

The Shenzhen Intermediate People’s Court placed Wang’s appeal on file for investigation Monday. (Zhang Yu)
