Beijing on Thursday rejected the judgment of a Republic of Korea local court in a case involving a Chinese captain charged with killing a Seoul coast guard officer.

The Incheon District Court sentenced Cheng Dawei, captain of a Chinese fishing boat, to 30 years in prison on Thursday for killing a law enforcement officer during a crackdown on illegal fishing last year.

The court ordered Cheng to pay 20 million won ($17,600) in fines, and sentenced eight other Chinese fishermen from the same boat to prison terms ranging from one-and-a-half to five years for "obstructing the coast guard officers in the course of their duty".
