8:00 sharp, the trial began on time, packed gallery, a criminal tribunal flag Zhang served as presiding judge in this case. Tian Wenhua, such as when 4 people were brought into court, immediately drew everyone's attention. Tian Wenhua dressed in yellow prison uniform of the mental state appeared better than expected.
Faced with the court, Tian Wenhua slightly formal, low voice weak, so the presiding judge to remind her twice to raise volume. With the conduct of the trial, she gradually returned to normal. Her answer to the question of clear lines of thought, a neat and tidy, and even when a fraction of what meetings are held fresh, her indictment accused her of part of that recognition.
The prosecution and the defense focused on whether there is concealed aspects Tian Wenhua.
Prosecutors believe that the Sanlu Group in knowing that their products are melamine detected in the case of failure, and did not stop production and sales of products containing melamine.
The prosecutor asked Tian Wenhua, she repeatedly said that a lot of things in the technology sector so, her own knowledge.
The defender asked Tian Wenhua, she thought quite clear: in September 2008, in the Sanlu was ordered to stop production, she at least 2 times a written report had been Shijiazhuang municipal government. But also in the test results come out before the Sanlu Group has been sent to various parts of sick children and their families to appease.
"At that time, doctors did not determine the Sanlu milk powder led to these children is the direct cause of illness, Sanlu had begun to advance the medical expenses of sick children had." Tian Wenhua said.
Tian Wenhua in determining the products contained melamine, they refer to the EU standards, with melamine content of 10 mg per kg and 20 mg per kilogram the following products, exchange of stock and marketable product. "This is a collective decision of the board of directors, but no one was put forward different views." In the trial scene, she said.

July 24, 2008, 16 batches of Sanlu infant milk powder sent to Hebei Province Series Exit Inspection and Quarantine and Inspection and Quarantine Technology Center detection, when taking into account the company's reputation, Sanlu did not explain to the Center is its own finished products, but only that it is raw materials or other things. In the trial process, the Sanlu Group is also trying should be kept confidential.
Tian Wenhua said that the August 1 at 5 pm, she has been testing report: submission of 16 batches of milk powder samples, 15 batches detected melamine. Then, she convened an emergency team to expand the Group's operating deliberations will be conducted.
However, it is precisely because of this meeting to misjudge the situation and, through a series of error resolution, so that Sanlu Group reached an impasse.
Tian Wenhua said that New Zealand's Fonterra in Sanlu Group, the directors to request the recall products, but many executives attending the meeting believed that recalled product can cause harm to the reputation, they decided to quietly exchange for a way to replace the recalled. "When we say that the proposal, representatives of New Zealand there is no objection, so this proposal was adopted."
Now, standing on the dock at the Tian Wenhua great regret, for the prosecution's allegations, she stated very seriously when the prosecution admitted that the allegations are true, also flowing tears of regret expressed their repentance: "If we can exchange risk children's health, willing to accept any legal sanctions. "
