According to China Post, they claim Qin & his 3 colleagues spread false reports that a foreign victim of the 2011 train crash received a £24million in compensation while denying equal payment to Chinese families.

The post was reposted more than 11,000 times with over 3,000 comments all lashing out at the government.
