A former laojiao inmate, who claimed she was wrongfully confined without trial, says she will continue her quest for justice, after her initial lawsuit for State compensation was turned down on Friday.

A panel of three judges at Yongzhou Intermediate People's Court decided to rebut the compensation request from Tang Hui, who had filed the case against the local committee for laojiao - re-education through labor camps - demanding 2,460 yuan ($397) in compensation and a written apology.

Tang said she cried after hearing the ruling. "I was sad, but not fully surprised. Seeking justice can be difficult," she said.
