Slavery Scandal in China: Bad Boss Captured.

A national manhunt in China finally captured Heng Tinghan, the owner of a brick kiln in Shanxi province, who is accused of enslaving his workers:

[Heng] has become a central villain in a national drama over possibly hundreds or more teenage and adult "slaves" forced or cheated into gruelling labour in kilns, mines and foundries across Shanxi and neighbouring Henan province.

When caught in the central province of Hubei, Heng apologised for mistreating workers but denied blame for the death of the mentally impaired man, a Hubei newspaper reported.

"I felt it was a fairly small thing, just hitting and swearing at the workers and not giving them wages," Heng said, according to the Shiyan Evening News. "The dead man had nothing to do with me."

Apparently he thought that "hitting, swearing, and not giving wages" are fairly small things. And you thought your boss was bad! Link

Criminals are caught all the time. I just didn't find this story "neat" in the sense that it is a curiosity or has a feeling of innocent wonderment. Not that that is the definition of neat. Oh well.
