Peter Humphrey was a British corporate investigator who worked in China until he and his Chinese wife were imprisoned after facing trumped-up charges. Having been released on health grounds and deported back to Britain, Mr Humphrey spoke on the programme. "The rule of law doesn't really exist in china," he said. "It is constantly violated because law in China is basically manipulated by people with powerful connections." The corporate investigator claimed that if somebody has offended you, and you have connections, you can have that person arrested. "It as a very serious type of corruption which is perverting the progress of justice in China," he said.
