A former party official is tried for corruption, and it’s definitely not your old-school show trial. Disgraced Chongqing governor Bo Xilai lashes back on the opening day of proceedings. François Picard’s panel wonders if authorities are playing with fire by going after a leader who still seems to have a strong following.
