Wang Lijun Loyalist Kidnapped by Bo Xilai?
Just before Bo Xilai was removed from his post of Chinese
Communist Party (CCP) Chongqing Secretary,
he kidnapped Wang Pengfei, who is the former deputy secretary
of public security bureau in Yubei district Chongqing city.
Wang Pengfei, a loyalist of Wang Lijun, is the former
vice mayor of Chongqing and Wang Lijun’s assistant.
He was the technical investigation leader of Chongqing
public security bureau, but was removed by Bo Xilai the day after Wang Lijun attempted to defect at the U.S. consulate.
Bo Xilai secretly tracked down Wang Pengfei by tracing the car
Wang Lijun drove and the cell phone he used.
According to China media “Financial News", Wang Pengfei
was immediately controlled after the Wang Lijun incident.
In this year’s Yubei district’s two sessions, district leadership
Wang Pengfei’s name was removed off the old leader list,
and wasn’t added to the new list.
Wang Pengfei was promoted to be the deputy leader
of Tieling public security bureau with Wang Lijun’s help, who was the leader of the bureau at that time.
Then, Wang Pengfei took on responsibility for
technical investigation and criminal investigation.
In 2010, he followed Wang Lijun to Chongqing.
Boxun Net quoted Shen Hou from Chongqing as saying
Bo Xilai kidnapped Wang Pengfei, and attempted all methods
to get him to admit his involvement Wang Lijun’s case,
as well as the details of the Wang Lijun incident.
Also, Bo attempted to discern whether the documents
Wang Lijun delivered to the U.S. consulate will impact Bo’s
political future, if any other’s have a copy of
those documents besides Wang Lijun.
Furthermore, Bo wanted to know whether Wang Lijun has
other confidential documents that might impact his future.
Shi Cangshan, the China issue expert in Washing DC:
“I believe that Bo Xilai’s biggest concern is whether
Wang Lijun was brought to Beijing from the U.S. consulate,
How many documents Wang Lijun delivered relating to
his power struggles, and how many documents were related
to his ambition to enter the CCP’s higher leadership.
Those documents may directly go against Hu Jintao,
Wen Jiabao, and even Xi Jinping."
The 13th edition of “Asia Week" reported that
the CCP core leadership is very angered that
the Chongqing authority monitored the agenda and tapped
the private conversation of CCP’s central leadership.
Even Wang Lijun built a relationship with the central guard
bureau to obtain access to and track the leaders’private secrets.
Wang Pengfei is the main executor of the spying.
Analysts think Wang Lijun just followed Bo Xilai as a thug.
Wang Lijun didn’t have the capability to establish contact
with the central guard bureau without Bo Xilai’s support.
It’s very clear that those actions were arranged by Bo Xilai
and Zhou Yongkang, especially contacting the central guard bureau – it must have been arranged by Zhou Yongkang.
Shi Cangshan: “Wang Lijun built the relationship
with the central guard bureau?
It’s obvious that Wang Lijun doesn’t have the capability,
and didn’t have the need.
It’s clearly that the reason is Bo Xilai, even Zhou Yongkang.
This is a very clear and has an inevitable logic.
At least there’s a very senior level person to build that kind
of relationship that can achieve the final situation."
Ji Xiaofeng, the chief editor of “China Review News,"
also thinks Zhou Yongkang can’t flee.
Ji Xiaofeng: “Wang Pengfei did the tapping,
it should not have been arranged by Wang Lijun,
it should have been ordered by Bo Xilai.
Wang Lijun is an executor.
From the current situation, Bo Xilai is in the same group
with Zhou Yongkang.
Now CCP has organized a class for Political and
Legal system officials.
I think the purpose of this class is to separate those small spy
chiefs from Zhou Yongkang, in case Zhou Yongkang wants to use them to launch a coup in future, he couldn’t."
“Boxun Net" reported that without Bo Xilai’s leadership,
the related leaders of Chongqing authority may restore
Wang Pengfei to his post in the short future when they take
into consideration the overall situation.
