Based on the case of Shi Dongyu, the author reports on the empirical studies of wrongful convictions in modern China. From August 2006 to March 2007 the author lead a team of researchers to distribute 2500 copies of questionnaires they had drawn up concerning wrongful convictions in China. The questionnaires were sent to legal professionals in public security bureaus, people's procuratorates, people's courts, law firms and justice departments in those areas. We reclaimed 1715 completed copies of the questionnaires. The team also collected, through various channels, more than 100 cases of wrongful convictions in China (since the 1980s), and analysed the causes of these wrongful convictions.
