Chinese student’s murder case sparks controversy
    2017-November-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE murder case of a Chinese student killed in Japan last year has attracted wide attention online as the case is set to be heard in Japan next month.

On Sina Weibo, a popular Twitter-like social media platform in China, the hashtag #Murder case of Chinese student in Tokyo# has garnered more than 1.8 billion views.

Jiang Ge, a 24-year-old Chinese student from Shandong, was killed at her apartment in Tokyo on Nov. 3 last year. Jiang was a postgraduate student at Hosei University.

In the early hours that day, Jiang was stabbed to death in the corridor of her apartment by the ex-boyfriend of her roommate, according to thepaper.cn.

According to media reports, Liu Xin, the victim’s roommate and her close friend, moved in with Jiang after breaking up with her boyfriend two months before the tragedy happened.

Liu’s boyfriend, Chen Shifeng, went to Jiang’s apartment to look for Liu that afternoon. The three had a quarrel and left the house afterwards. That same night, Liu and Jiang went back to the apartment, with Liu arriving first.

Liu said when she was changing her pants in the house, she heard screaming outside the door. She tried to open the door, but found it was blocked. Then she called the police.

The victim’s mother, Jiang Qiulian, blamed Liu for her daughter’s death by claiming Liu had locked Jiang out when she was attacked. She also criticized Liu for avoiding her and refusing to explain to her the details of the incident face-to-face after the tragedy happened.

In response to criticisms, Liu told thepaper.cn that she did not see Jiang’s mother after Jiang was killed because she was banned by police from seeing anyone related to Jiang to protect the validity and confidentiality of the evidence, and said she did not lock the door before Jiang was attacked.

The case, which is to be held in Tokyo on Dec. 10, has become a hot topic online.

One of the most upvoted comments below a post on Sina Weibo said: “I can understand that she (Liu) felt too scared to open the door… But the way she responded to the incident makes me feel a chill. After her roommate’s death, she did not even say sorry to the (victim’s mother).” The victim’s mother is collecting signatures in Japan to call for a death sentence for the suspect.
