Hu Deping Criticizes Zhou Yongkang.
Hu Deping, eldest son of the late Chinese Communist Party
(CCP) General Secretary Hu Yaobang, has recently publicly
criticized Zhou Yongkang and his support of “sing the red,
hit the gang" campaign in Chongqing.
Hu Deping, with his special status and a supporter of the
rule of law, is known to be friendly with Xi Jinping.
But, commentators don’t believe his ideas will be realized.
How is his attitude towards Zhou Yongkang
being interpreted? Let’s take a look.
In a recent innovation forum held in Shenzheng, Hu Deping
indicated, some corrupt officials have trampled the rule of
law and seriously disturbed social order. It has greatly
violated the psychological sense of security, creating terror.
He said as one of those affected, he also questioned what
happened to the society.
Hu Deping did not name the corrupt officials.
He also said that he had written a letter to Zhou Yongkang
in October 2010, addressing the corrupt issues reflected by
an old general, and his own concerns over the political
movements, social order and security.
Hu Deping said, during the time when Zhou Yongkang was
highly supportive of “sing the red, hit the gang" campaign
in Chongqing, his talks would create terror in people
about the development of politics and law in China.
Hu Deping doesn’t believe the various unexpected social
conflicts, will disappear quickly or become class struggle.
He said that the CCP has engaged in many class struggles
in since the regime was established.
Most have been quite unnecessary and meaningless.
They don’t solve any problems. The real problems could
have been solved by different means, the rule of law.
US-based China social issue researcher Zhang Jian: “His talks
are not just about Zhou Yongkang but also towards the CCP.
He expressed his views about the many years of CCP
rule relying on the bloody crackdown on dissidents and
elimination of opponents within the party."
In an interview with Beijing News on Nov. 13, Hu Deping
again mentioned the Chongqing campaign and rule of law.
He said, during the time when Bo Xilai was engaging in the
“sing the red, hit the gang" campaign in Chongqing, former
director of the Chongqing Municipal Public Security Bureau
Wang Lijun had openly talked.
Wang said, “As long as the political issue is investigated as a
legal issue, we have the absolute right to speak."
Hu Deping asked the Central about the horrifying argument;
openly expressed that the judicial system is questionable.
Therefore, he believes that political reform and judicial
reform are becoming more important.
The rule of law will restrict the authority and put the
authority under constitutional review.
The Communist Party must take the lead in being
law-abiding. This is in the scope of political reform.
However, even though rule of law was emphasized during
the Fourth Plenary Session, the conclusion remained.
“The party’s leadership guides the implementation
of the rule of law."
Although Hu Deping considered to “constrain the exercise
of power", “the CCP must take the lead in law-abiding,"
in the scope of political reform, but the commentators
are not optimistic about the achievement.
Zhang Jian: “In China, as long as the CCP rules, the rule of
law will only remain as a dream.
If the party is above the law, then the party must be the
dictator, and an evil one. Because there is no restraint."
Hu Deping also mentioned the special interest groups
in the Beijing News interview.
He indicated that the groups have occupied property
of the people and the state.
Although they still hold the power, they should be dealt
with according to the law;
Everything stolen should be returned to the people.
Famous political commentator, Beijing Spring editor Hu Ping
believes that giving back to the people is a must.
But, it is impossible at this stage.
Hu Ping: “To return what has been stolen, means a complete
denial of the CCP revolution and reform.
It is also a denial of the Communist one-party dictatorship.
The CCP has plundered twice: The first one was done in the
name of revolution to deprive all individuals’ property.
Then it was done in the name of reform to turn peoples’
property into the property of the powerful elites.
That is what its ruling was built upon."
After the fourth plenary session, Xi Jinping’s close ally, Hu
Deping, has expressed his support of rule of law on many
occasions, and criticisms of Bo Xilai and Zhou Yongkang.
Hu Deping also took over the outspoken magazine
“Yanhuang Chunqiu" as the president last month.
Radio Free Asia reported that Hu Deping has been mobilized
to deal with the Central Propaganda Department;
It is to handle the red second generation with another Red II.
