"Shenzhen Airlines Case", Senior Executive Jailed - Zhang Embarrassed.
Ongoing investigations into the Shenzhen Airlines Case which
involves major funding corruption has made new progress.
Former Executive Supervisor Guo Yingjun, who has been
sentenced to 12 years for fraud, is the first senior executive to be jailed.
As investigations progressed, Zhang Dejiang, a member of
the CCP Politburo Standing Committee who supported the case is now in an embarrassing situation.
Media reports claim that, the CCP leader Xi Jinping
has attacked those that have a Jiang Zemin background, at the Standing Committee.
Zhang is increasingly under more and more pressure.
According to media reports from the Mainland on 8th July,
Guo Yingjun, a former Supervisor of Shenzhen Airlines
was charged with defrauding the company of 3 million yuan.
Guo was sentenced to 12 years in jail at the
Beijing Second Intermediate Court.
Hence, Guo has become the first senior
Executive of Shenzhen Airlines to get jailed.
Those indicted for misappropriating public funds of
2 billion yuan from Shenzhen Airlines,
includes Li Zeyuan, the ringleader, also Zhao Xiang
the Board Director, Li Kun General Manager,
Xu Haiwei the Supervisory Board Chairman, Liu Wenbiao
a Director, and Xie Yunshuang the Chief Financial Officer.
The six of them have gone through the trial and
currently are awaiting sentencing.
On 9th April, The CCP regime bosses suddenly announced
the big case of "Shenzhen's Funding Black Hole"
Alluding that Zhang Dejiang was the actual proponent of
the case to go for the big gun Li Zeyuan.
Zhang was pushed to the frontline. Since then the
"Shenzhen Airlines Case" has escalated continuously.
In the final court hearing on 05th June,
Li Zeyuan confessed that, in a bid for Shenzhen Airlines,
he bribed the head of the Guangdong Provincial Government.
Zhang Dejiang was then the Provincial CCP Secretary.
Li Shankan, an Independent commentator on Chinese Issues:
“They begin by announcing the case,
then begin the trial and investigations.
It ties in closely to the political factions within
the CCP high-ranking groups."
Overseas magazine Epoch Weekly released exclusive news.
During a recent study meeting, Xi Jinping attacked some
conservative Committee members and Politburo members.
It included Liu Yunshan and Zhang Dejiang
who was under great pressure.
It was said that Zhang Dejiang asked for sick leave.
Li Shankan, independent commentator on China issues,
pointed out that;
it's likely Xi Jinping used the case to warn Zhang Dejiang.
Because Xi Jinping had proposed abolition of
re-education through the forced labor system,
but was held-up by Zhang Dejiang at the
NPC (National People's Congress).
Li Shankan: "(Zhang) resisted carrying it out at NPC.
He did not follow up with legislation and the relevant changes.
It was obvious. Xi Jinping is not pleased with the obstructionist
tigers, and Zhang Dejiang definitely is one of them."
In May 2005, Shenzhen, "Huirun Investment Limited"
which was controlled by Li Zeyuan Holdings,
successfully purchased 65% stake in Shenzhen Airlines
at the price of 2.72 billion.
It became the main controller of Shenzhen Airlines.
In fact, "Huirun Investment Limited" was just a shell company
and it was established just two months before the bid.
According to media reports Zhang Dejiang, the current
Guangdong Party Secretary was very anxious about Shenzhen Airline's auction.
The reports claim that Zhang personally intervened and
helped Li Zeyuan take control of Shenzhen Airline.
Wang Beiji, current affairs commentator told NTD that
Xi Jinping's warning to Zhang doesn't mean that
Zhang will be investigated.
Wang Beiji:"Does the CCP's message mean an
investigation into Zhang Dejiang? I won't be so optimistic.
Zhang's ultimate fate will most likely be the same as Jia
Qinglin: promotion, security and continuing in his position."
Mingjing News revealed that Li Zeyuan
worked for Zhao Nanqi,
a former director of the general logistics
department of the People's Liberations Army.
Zhao was Zhang's right hand man.
The reports said that apart from Zhang,
several high-ranking officials such as Zeng Peiyan,
Luo Zhijun, and daughter of Zhao Nanqi,
singer Song Zuying etc. also played an important
role in Shenzhen Airline's affairs.
