60,000 People Punished in 5 Months.
July 11, it is said by the Central Commission for Disciplinary
Inspection (CCDI), from January to May of this year, over 60
thousand party members received disciplinary sanctions,
which was a 34.7% increase over last year.
Experts pointed out that Chinese people could read information
about the capture of big or small tigers every day.
However, when can this production line be eradicated?
Why were the people who assisted the anti-corruption arrested
at the same time the authorities shouted anti-corruption?
What is the effect for such selective anti-corruption?
July 11, according to the Chinese Communist Party Legal Daily
report, by the end of May, the CCDI investigated nearly 40,000
problems in violation of the eight provisions; dealt with more
than 50,000 people and punished more than 10,000 people.
From January to May, there were 62,953 people who received
disciplinary sanctions from CCDI, an increase of 34.7%
over the previous year.
On the same day, it was rumored from mainland Zhongxin
website that Guangzhou Vice Mayor, Zengcheng party secretary
Cao Jianliao were doubly expelled.
However, four members of the new citizens movement,
who requested the officials to publicize their property were
sentenced on charges of disturbing public order in April when
the anti-corruption campaign was in full swing.
The late Chinese Premier Zhao Ziyang’s secretary Bao Tong
appealed to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s
anti-corruption needs to think rationally.
Bao Tong said, the CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping is
certainly a hero to beat the tiger if we look around the world
and at the CCP’s history.
However, Bao Tong questioned why the CCP arrested citizens
who helped anti-corruption, while shouting anti-corruption?
How does such selective anti-corruption deal with
continual new tigers?
Bao Tong: If the anti-corruption theme is citizen, I believe
that there is no system to generate corruption,
but a corrupt individual.
If the system doesn’t allow people to act against corruption,
the system will continue to produce corruption.
It’s impossible to eradicate corruption under a system which
can produce corruption continuously.
Canadian writer Sheng Xue: CCP’s anti-corruption is nothing
more than cleaning up their own team.
They took advantage of anti-corruption to find problems in the
economy and get conclusions in politics.
Today, the CCP’s corruption is not a single case,
but regime corruption.
After the CCP’s big tiger Xu Caihou’s was given the sack,
it was rumored by Hong Kong media, the former vice chairman of
the Central Military Commission Guo Baixiong’s steel couple’s
son Guo Zhenggang were taken away by the
Military Discipline Inspection for investigation.
July 8, China lifted the ban on the information of
Guo Baixiong being arrested.
July 7, Lanzhou Military Region, which was known as half of
the generals were promoted by Guo Baixiong, had
big adjustments on the generals.
There were three people promoted, including: former deputy
political commissar Miao Hua, who took over the political
commissar; the former director of the Political Department,
Fan Changmi took over as the deputy political commissar.
Xu Yuanlin who was from the Jinan military region took over as
director of the Political Department.
Meanwhile, Lanzhou Military Region had three officers promoted
to the rank of lieutenant.
In addition, seven military officers from the southern military
region, Gansu Province Military Region and the Ningxia military
region were promoted to the rank of major general.
In April, the overseas Chinese website said Guo Baixiong was
taken away from his home after the Tomb Sweeping Festival.
Outsiders are guessing when another big tiger will be
carried out within the CCP military.
Bao Tong: it’s just the leaders’ anti-corruption.
As I know the leaders are corrupt;
so it means they are against themselves.
It’s only when the leaders want to get rid of the corrupt
and the corrupt step down.
It’s impossible to make corrupt members as a universal
target that everyone beats at.
On the same day of the 60,000 tigers announcement, the CCP
Liberation Army Daily reported that the CCP Central Military
Commission held the rank promotion ceremony at the Bayi
Building in Beijing.
CCP military chief Xi Jinping awarded mandamus to the officers
who were promoted to the rank of general.
The four promoted officers are: Deputy Chief Staff Qi Jianguo,
the Shenyang Military Region Commander Wang Jiaocheng,
political commissar Chu Yimin, political commissar of the
Guangzhou Military Region, Wei Liang.
Normally, the CCP promotion takes place on the 1st August.
It is suspected to replace the fallen tigers for this
year’s earlier promotion.
Who can guarantee the newly promoted general will not
become corrupt generals?
However, the Yazhou Zhoukan director Huang Jinqiu believes,
it will be more cost-effective for Xi Jinping to assert himself
after cleaning up the corrupt in the CCP team, and lead China
toward democracy as the elected president than to be a
dictator for ten years in the CCP.
