Tigers of Jiang Faction were Expelled From the Party and
Taken into Judicial Custody
Former vice chairman of the Central Military Commission Xu
Caihou, has recently been expelled from the party and
transferred to the Supreme People’s Court.
The Military Court is authorized to handle his case.
On the same day, another three big tigers of Jiang faction
were expelled and transferred there as well.
Some analysts pointed out that everything is precluding
the arrest of Jiang faction bigwig Zeng Qinghong
and the former CCP leader Jiang Zemin.
June 30, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) official media
released, the general secretary Xi Jinping decided to expel
the former vice chairman of the Central Military Commission
Xu Caihou from the party at the Politbureau meeting
led by Xi Jinping.
The clue related to Xu’s bribery crime has been transferred to
the Supreme Court and authorized the military court
to take care of it.
Xu Caihou is the second state level leader taken down since
the CCPs 18th National Congress.
Su Rong, the former vice-chairman of the Chinese People’s
Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) was said to be
investigated last week.
Xu Caihou, handpicked by former CCP leader Jiang Zemin, was
regarded as Jiang’s favorite in the military.
Over 10 years, Xu had administration control over cadre and
personnel in millions of Chinese military and armed police
forces which made the position of title purchase and
sales quite serious.
It is said that Xu Caihou had big interests of benefit with
former Secretary of Chongqing, Bo Xilai and former Politburo
Standing Committee member, Zhou Yongkang.
He was also involved in Bo’s and Zhou’s coup.
Xu Caihou had the main responsibility of persecuting Falun
Gong practitioners and live organ harvesting in CCP military.
On the same day of Xu’s expulsion and transfer to the
judiciary, three other former senior officials ousted from the
Party were Jiang Jiemin, a former minister in
charge of state assets;
Li Dongsheng, former vice minister of public security and
610 office director; and Wang Yongchun, former deputy
head of China National Petroleum Corporation.
Beijing politics watcher Hua Po: Four people
were announced together.
Firstly, they need to summarize the anti-corruption outcomes
Secondly, Xi Jinping wants to shock his political opponents
inside the party with these people.
He was strongly followed by bigwigs and few interest groups
when he was trying to readjust the interest pattern.
So Xi jinping has to beat the tigers by anti-corruption which
is like warning the opponents via a deliberate act.
Li Dongsheng has actively cooperated with Jiang Zemin to
slander Falun Gong when he served as CCTV deputy
director of the period.
According to incomplete statistics, from July 21, 1999 to the
end of 2005, CCTV broadcasted 102 sets to discredit Falun
Gong in the Focus program.
Among that, the 2001 Tiananmen self-immolation pseudo
case planned by CCTV incited all the Chinese peoples hatred
against Falun Gong.
In 2009, Li Dongsheng was transferred to the Vice Minister
of Public Security which was responsible for the coordination
with the Central Propaganda Department.
In the meantime, Li also served as 610 Office director
and became the executor to persecute Falun Gong
in Jiang’s faction.
It is said Jiang Jiemin and Wang Yongchun were cowboys in
Zhou Yongkang’s Oil Gang.
Over the past 10 years, PetroChina has become
Zhou Yongkang’s family pocketbook.
Jiang Jiemin confessed during the investigation about the
black curtain that Zhou Yongkang’s family purchased the
300 billion yuan (US$ 48.3 billion) Liaohe Oilfield with
10 million yuan (US$ 1.6 million).
The commentator Xing Tianxing: The four people being taken
down means that the Jiang faction has completely died.
The current Xi Jinping group spare no effort to
combat the old force.
He released a great signal to other people not
to have any illusions.
I believe there might be more people to commit
to Xi Jinping later.
According to the CCP media Liberation Army Daily report,
Xu Caihou’s expulsion has aroused strong repercussions in
the military and armed forces.
The four Chinese military headquarters, Navy, Air Force and
seven of The People’s Liberation Army region expressed to
comply with the Central, the Central Military Commission
and President Xi’s command on July 1.
Commentator Xia Xiaoqiang pointed out in a blog that Xi
Jinping will upgrade Zhou Yongkang’s charge after being in
control of military power.
It may provide strong support to arrest Zeng and Jiang.
In the future, it won’t be strange for any old tiger
to be sacked including Zeng Qinghong and Jiang Zemin.
XING Tianxing: There is preparation work for later action.
Zhou Yongkang is the first step to be monitored.
Most rumors are about Zeng Qinghong family and the rest.
He might be the next one to be taken care of.
These people are grasshoppers on one rope.
No matter who gets sacked, he is unlikely to spit
the other one out.
According to the report, on the same day of the four people
including Xu Caihou were expelled and transferred to the
judiciary, Xi Jinping’s crony Shanghai Party Secretary
Ying Yong has also been promoted
to deputy secretary of Shanghai.
It means Jiang Zemin is in great danger because Xi Jinping
placed his crony in Shanghai.
