Military Calls for Loyalty to Hu Jintao, Zhou Yongkang Gets Warned
On March 27th, People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Daily
newspaper published an article.
Contents include: ‘To ensure that the military forces will,
at anytime and under any condition, resolutely listen to the Central Party,
the Central Military Committee and Hu’s commands.’
This article was exactly at the time of Bo’s removal,
and as the high-level power struggles within the Chinese
Communist Party (CCP) receive more and more attention.
Outside attention is particularly focused on what kind of
function the PLA will serve in this power struggle.
Analysts said, since Bo and Zhou’s rebel plan has been exposed,
Hu temporarily controls Zhou.
However, since Zhou has controlled Politics and Law Committee
for many years, his interest group and forces would possibly fight back when faced with ousting.
This article indicates Hu’s warning to Zhou and Jiang, meanwhile,
showing Hu is in solid charge of military command.
Mainland Chinese netizens broke the news on the internet
saying that tens of Bo Xilai’s core followers are detained.
Some confessed, Bo Xilai squanders and is involved in
extramarital affairs, and
he also bribed more than 200 celebrities to flatter Bo, and
publicize the list of names.
Including the CCP’s internet commentators, Si Manan,
Kong Qingdong and Fang Binxing.
Beijing University Prof. Kong QingDong publicly admitted online
that he accepted Bo’s one million yuan RMB and hence received State Security Bureau’s investigation.
Western media continues to search the cause of
Neil Heywood’s death, hoping to find the truth amongst various clues.
The Wall Street Journal quoted an intelligence company’s
spokesperson that in November last year, Heywood provided information service to this company.
BBC reported that Heywood and Bo’s son, GuaGua, were
close friends, but he wasn’t his “nanny”.
Analysts believe, Heywood may have become friends with
GuaGua to find out more about Bo’s dealings. Upon finding out more about Bo, he was killed.
