In a historic decision, the Chinese government chose to open up the entire proceedings against Bo under the limelight of public media by televising portions of it, while supplying a complete transcript of every statement made, for public consumption. While the case is serious enough in itself, the manner in which the Chinese government handled it illustrates its maturity and confidence in the system it has created, that it will achieve justice without having to resort to any arbitrary ruling. Compared to the impreachments against Nixon and Clinton, this event promises to be a landmark of fairness and transparency, despite the political ramifications of its outcome. While many of the allegations might come through, some will be refuted. Whatever the outcome, the Chinese people are the real winners, because not only will justice be served, but a sound judicial system would have been established that they can depend on.
