Zeng Qinghong Is Said to Be Investigated
While Zhou Yongkang is being investigated, Zeng Qinghong,
former Chinese Vice President, is said to be targeted as well.
Zeng Qinghong is known as the behind the scenes consigliere
of the Jiang faction.
Why is Zeng Qinghong targeted?
Our commentators believe Zeng Qinghong will be sacked.
Here is our report.
Hong Kong’s Open Magazine February cover article reported
that the CPC Central Commission for Discipline’s Project One
is targeting Zeng Qinghong.
In 2012, the cases of Bo Xilai and Wang Lijun exposed the
murder, corruption, immorality, and live organ harvesting of
the Chinese Communist Part (CCP).
After Bo Xilai’s life sentence last year, attention was drawn
to Zhou Yongkang, once a firm supporter of Bo Xilai.
Earlier this year, Zhou Yongkang was put under house
arrest to be investigated.
Why would the CCP initiate the so-called Project One on
Zeng Qinghong after Zhou Yongkang was investigated?
Commentator Li Shanjian analyzes that it is due to the
political alliances between Zeng Qinghong, Zhou Yongkang,
and Bo Xilai.
In 2012, it was reported by freebeacon.com that Wang Lijun
disclosed to the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu the coup plan
between Bo Xilai and Zhou Yongkang.
Jiang’s faction had planned to have Bo enter the Politburo
Standing Committee at first, and then replace Xi Jinping two
Li Shanjian, commentator: “This coup plan has to be dealt
with in order to secure the Communist leadership.
It is not just about Bo Xilai or Zhou Yongkang, but the
political alliances of Jiang, Zeng and Zhou.
Zeng Qinghong was once the leader of the force.
Jiang’s days are numbered."
Zeng Qinghong and Zhou Yongkang were recognized as the
leaders of China’s oil monopoly.
Zhou Yongkang became the boss of the Oil Gang after
Zeng Qinghong retired.
It was said that Zhou Yongkang was promoted to the Politburo
Standing Committee, and the secretary of the politics and law
Commission because of Zeng Qinghong and Jiang Zemin.
They had recognized Zhou Yongkang’s capability during his
post as the party secretary and Minister of Public Security of
Sichuan for the brutal repression of Falun Gong practitioners
and other rights defenders.
Li Shanjian believes that such a political and economic alliance
is a dangerous threat to the regime.
Li Shanjian: “On the one hand, it is hard to establish its own
credibility; on the other hand, this alliance can bite at any
time, and even kill its authority.
Therefore, the leadership can not break lose after Zhou
Yongkang is defeated.
They must eliminate the entire force behind the coup.
It is the major priority."
Commentator Lan Su analyzes the persecution of Falun Gong
has made Zhou Yongkang, Zeng Qinghong, and Jiang Zemin
an alliance of criminals.
Late last year, the European Parliament, the U.S. Congress,
the United Nations and human rights organizations have all
asked the CCP to stop the live organ harvesting from
Falun Gong practitioners.
Lan Su believes that the international exposure of live organ
harvesting has put strong pressure on the CCP.
To secure the CCP even though the current leadership
abandoned former heads of the political and law system,
they still could not settle the issue.
Lan Su: “The most fundamental issue of live organ harvesting
is not what the political and law system and Zhou Yongkang
This major serious national crime involves the entire country
such as the health department, customs, military, armed police.
Zhou Yongkang can not carry the burden himself.
Many more people are needed to carry the burden."
Just recently when Zhou Yongkang was detained and
interrogated, foreign media exposed the offshore accounts of
the six most influential regime officials.
Lan Su believes this is simply a ploy of the Jiang faction to
Lan Su: “In these circumstances, both the fifth generation of
the leadership and the Jiang faction have reached a dead end.
The leaders are forced to turn to Zeng Qinghong, while Zeng
Qinghong and Jiang Zemin will also make every effort
to counterattack, since there’s no alternative."
Last October 15, at the commemoration of Xi Jinping’s
father, Xi Zhongxun’s death day, only Bo’s and Zeng’s
family were absent among the high officials.
On January 9, at Hong Kong’s Sir Run Run Shaw’s funeral,
Zeng Qinghong once in charge of Hong Kong and Macao
for more than a decade was also absent.
China affair expert Shi Zangshan indicates Zeng Qinghong’s
absence suggests that he could be under investigation.
