Mother of Briton murdered in China renews compensation call

He Zhengsheng (centre) a lawyer for the family of British murder victim Neil Heywood speaks to media as he leaves court in Hefei, Anhui province on August 20, 2012The mother of a Briton whose murder led to the downfall of high-flying Chinese politician Bo Xilai has hit out at Beijing for failing to pay compensation over his death, saying it left a “stain” on China’s reputation. Neil Heywood was found dead in a hotel room in the southwestern Chinese mega-city of Chongqing in November 2011. Bo’s wife Gu Kailai was convicted of the murder while the former political star’s own trial ruled he acted to suppress a probe into the killing. Bo, once one of the Communist Party’s elite 25-member Politburo, was convicted of bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power and sentenced to life in prison last September after a trial that exposed murky machinations, high-living and homicide in his inner circle.
