Tang Hui is one of many who have found themselves on the wrong side of the re-education through labour (RTL) system in China. After the sexual assault of her daughter in 2006, Tang was dissatisfied with the sentence handed to the seven offenders and raised her grievance with the verdict. As a result, she was sent to a camp under the RTL system without formal trial.
