Injured Japanese Car Owner in Xi’an Anti-Japan Protest Sues Police

Xi’an was among the cities most hit by anti-Japan protests hardly seen in years as more than 60 Japan-made cars were smashed and dozens people were injured

One victim seriously injured in last month’s anti-Japan protest in Xi’an sued local police on Tuesday for lack of effective response in September 15th's protest which turned into violent.

Li Jianli, a Japan-made car owner, was hit in the head by a U-shaped grim lock and his Toyota car was smashed by dozens when he encountered a group of anti-Japan protestors on his way home on September 15th.

Li was later sent to a hospital and diagnosed with open craniocerebral injury.

In the complaint filed to a local court, Li accused that the police failed to deliver quick and effective response throughout the day-long protest, or a few number of police showed up to stop the protest from turning into violence.

Li’s lawyer said they were demanding 500,000 in compensation for loss from the defendant.

Massive anti-Japan demonstrations erupted in cities across the nation as crowds of thousands of Chinese vandalised Japanese restaurants, ransacked department stores, torched Japanese-branded cars in mid-September following Japan purchased the disputed Diaoyu Island which China claimed to be its own.

Xi’an was among the cities most hit by anti-Japan protests hardly seen in years as more than 60 Japan-made cars were smashed and dozens people were injured.
