On July 12, Zeng Chengjie, a businessman convicted of illegal fundraising activities and financial fraud, was executed by provincial authorities in Hunan Province, without his family’s notification. Zeng’s daughter has since gone on China’s social media platform, Sina Weibo, to protest her father’s execution. Weibo users have responded with criticism over Zeng’s hasty execution and questioned the troubling relationship between government and business in China.
