Media: Xi Jinping orders an investigation into Zhou Yongkang
Overseas Chinese media reported yesterday, Xi Jinping
& 6 other Communist regime standing committee members,
have decided to file a formal investigation into Zhou Yongkang,
former secretary of Central Political & Law Commission.
This decision was believed to be an approach formed,
which then gradually evolved into reaching
the target of Xi Jinping’s order early August.
An exclusive report of DW news on August 11, indicated that
Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party,
have reached a consensus regarding Zhou Yongkang,
according to three different high ranking sources.
Xi Jinping has decided, in early August, to initiate
the investigation & punishment of Zhou Yongkang.
According to sources from Zhongnanhai, investigations
surrounding Zhou Yongkang were started as early as last year
when the 18th National Congress was taking place.
Tiananmen Movement Student & participant Zhao Faguang:
“I hope this news is real. That means it is time to punish him."
The source also indicated that both Xi Jinping and
Wang Qishan, secretary of the Central Discipline Inspection,
have worked closely in dealing with Zhou Yongkang.
In fact Wang Qishan’s main task has been on Zhou Yongkang.
For days adverse reports on Zhou Yongkang have been seen,
including overseas media associated with Jiang’s faction.
Zhou Yongkang’s allies in Sichuan were removed or arrested
one after the other.
Recently, his family crony Wu Bing, was arrested in Beijing
during his fleeing trip.
His son, Zhou Bin, was also reported having fled abroad,
only to be arrested by the authorities.
Based on the bizarre situation, commentator Xia Xiaoqiang
believed Jiang faction has abandoned Zhou Yongkang.
Political commentator Xia Xiaoqiang: “Assuming the regime
has abandoned Zhou Yongkang, he’s likely to have the same fate as Bo Xilai.
He will be charged with the crime of corruption
to release domestic pressure on the CCP.
But the CCP will no longer escape its final crisis,
because sooner or later,
the evil crime & truth of live organ harvesting from
Falun Gong practitioners, as directed by Bo Xilai,
Zhou Yongkang, and Jiang Zemin, will be revealed in full."
Commentator Ren Baiming analyzed that
Zhou Yongkang is central to the Jiang faction.
He is the true operator for Jiang Zemin. He is also the
main figure in Bo Xilai’s coup plan. Jiang is his backbone.
Ren Baiming believed that Xi and Li are dealing with Zhou’s
case with the tactic of “boiling the frog with tempered water.”
Ren Baiming: “Once Zhou Yongkang is eliminated,
the entire Jiang faction is gone.
Jiang Zemin will be the only one left.
Zhou Yongkang can not escape.
He is surely the next target of the CCP."
The source also claimed that the Communist Premier
Li Keqiang is firmly supportive of Xi Jinping’s decision on
Zhou Yongkang’s case.
Ren Baiming: “People hate Zhou. Any adverse report
on Zhou Yongkang will always please the people.
Xi and Li are getting popular for dealing with Zhou.
This is quite favorable for Xi and Li."
Ren Baiming explained that Zhou Yongkang destroyed the
judicial system & established an “independent kingdom” for
Jiang Zemin with his “private army",
i.e., the labor camp, police & prisons, during his post
at the Central Political & Law Commission.
Zhao Faguang: “Zhou Yongkang is the commander &
leader of the corruption.
To punish Zhou Yongkang will make everyone happy.
We have also learned his leadership in persecuting
Falun Gong. The liquidation now is actually too late."
It is reported that Zhou Yongkang has been restricted by
the authorities. Relevant information will be released soon.
If Zhou Yongkang is being investigated, this will be yet
another blow to the CCP, following the case of Bo Xilai.
