Who is the next “Tiger"
Retired high-rank officials of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have privilege
and protection against CCP disciplinary, political and penal punishment.
However, recent Mainland media report, such a convention needs to end.
Is this to pave a path for further tying “retired tigers"- Zhou Yongkang and even Jiang Zemin? Let’s watch the program.
Mainstream websites in the Mainland all cite the article published in the magazine “Window with Southern Wind" titled" the roadmap of tying tigers of the Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Central Committee of the CCP (CDICCCCP) : retired ‘Old Tiger'".
The article lists all investigated high-rank officials’ ages. Among them, the highest “Old Tiger" is 64-year-old Guo Yongxiang, who is named as “the key secretary of Zhou Yongkang." In addition, in the article, when speaking of
local “corporate crime cases", “Petro China system" corporate crime cases and the group of high ran ex-officials in Chengdu City are all highlighted,
who are all members of the clique headed by Zhou Yongkang. For example, Jiang Jiemin and Li Chuncheng are both mentioned. The former is ex-head official of Petro China and ex-head of State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, and the latter is a deputy CCP head of Sichuan Province.
The analyst points out, such a report and citation in the Mainland media is paving a speech pathway for the top level of the CCP to further take action against Zhou Yongkang and even Jiang Zemin.
American political commentator Li Shanjian: " from the current situation development,the conclusion is inevitable.Actually in the past, when the CCP punished the corrupted officials, there is no division between on-position and off-position officials. In fact, this is a political fight and a factional war. Who should be punished depends on which faction the person puts himself in, rather than if they are in the position or off the position. “
February 11, the headline of the CCP official media is a pledge made by Premier Li Keqiang “Zero tolerance for corruption, heavily blowing the corruption".
Meanwhile the Committee of Political and Legislative Affairs (CPLA) of the Central Committee of the CCP firstly published 10 typical cases of its employees including policemen and high rank officials. The official media opening headline “Resolutely Remove Evil Members of the Herd without shielding a fault."
American historian and the host of the Central Committee of China’s Social Democracy Party Liu Yinquan: “this will possibly lay a foundation for tying some ‘Old Tigers’ in the future. Because these ‘Old Tigers’ are still playing negative roles like Jiang Zemin and Zhou Yongkang, who are still managing to produce rumors and make trouble."
Phoenix network, named as “overseas CCTV",has a headline video program on February 12 “The top level of the CCP has two actions within one day,
which warns Li Dongsheng is not the real big tiger in the CPLA system."
Li Dongsheng was the Ex-Deputy Minister of the Public Security Ministry, and concurrent Director of the “610 Office" affiliated to CPLA, who carried out
the policy of persecuting Falun Gong launched by ex-Head of the CCP Jiang Zemin.
After Li Dongsheng and other high rank officials have been exposed at the beginning of the Year of Horse, the CPLA raised the slogan “Double investigation for one case" in a high tone, which is for major cases, not only charge the relevant persons responsible, but also the higher level officials responsible.
Li Shanjian says, in order to thoroughly solve the issues related to Zhou Yongkang, it is necessary to clear the power of Zeng Qinghong and Jiang Zemin from his back.
Before the 18th CCP Plenary Session in 2013, Zhou Yongkang was the boss of the front desk, and “the military adviser" was Zeng Qinghong.
The CPLA controlled by Zhou Yongkang was once the “Second Authority of the CCP Central Committee", and forced Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao to“issue their orders
without impacting on the place outside Zhongnanhai.”
Li Shanjian: “What’s the real crime of Zhou Yongkang? He is not only involved in corruption, but also the coup. Furthermore, there is also genocide and organ harvesting on Falun Gong practitioners. If without telling such stuff,
who will be the decision-maker? If you cannot pull out Zeng Qinghong and even Jiang Zemin, then such a thing cannot be clarified."
When the observers are highly involved what charges will Zhou Yongkang face and
when will he be exposed. The overseas Jiang Zemin media once said “Xi Jinping is blocked when he launched the anti-corruption movement, many senior top officials
are appealing to release Zhou Yongkang." According to US-based Epoch Times news report, some Beijing news sources refuted the rumor. The earlier reports say, “Zhou Yongkang"‘ case has been reported to cadre of departmental directorship
of the CCP, which will be published shortly.
Liu Yinquan: “Some of the current top leaders might spare the rat to save the dishes and mind the ways of dealing with this project.They need to consider these issues.They may also possibly allow Jiang Zemin and Zhou Yongkang to have some bounces."
On December 15th, some news was disseminated “to arrest Zhou Yongkang gains almost one hundred percent support rate," because for many years he suppressed the appeals of people, like Falun Gong practitioners, Uygurs, Tibetans and activists via cruel means and numerous crimes.
Li Shanjian: “(the CCP top official) not only deal with Zhou Yongkang, Zeng Qinghong and Jiang Zemin,when these things are revealed, then the Party cannot support it.When they cannot support it, then they decide to reject it.For them, this event is actually a sort of political capital.Why not enjoy happiness in this way?"
Li Shanjian says: “the matters of persecuting people,especially persecuting Falun Gong practitionersand especially the organ harvesting from live Falun Gong practitioners, lead them to indispensablyaccept history’s and humankind’s ‘trial.’In the internal CCP, Who dares to look at this problem,
and then can free themselves."
