Financial Times: the CCP and Bo
Financial Times in UK published an article on October 5
saying that the fall of Bo Xilai, which exposed shocking details
regarding his rights, money, sex and murder,
completely broke the myth of “good emperors" in Beijing.
These dirty deeds show the Chinese people and the world
that corruption has reached the core of Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The report said that in the past 30 years,
the CCP had been carefully creating the illusion that
even though the grass-root sectors may be corrupt and
erroneous, the CCP system is led by an elite group who serves the people with integrity.
So, when the people of Wukan village protested against local
corrupt officials, they still insisted on allegiance to CCP leaders,
believing that the central CCP knows local corruption issues,
and justice would prevail.
However, due to Bo’s actions people realize that senior CCP
officials are as corrupt as low-level ones.
The report said that a lot of people questioned why Bo Xilai
could be at large for such a long time being so corrupt.
How much difference is there between other officials
and Bo Xilai, they wondered.
Li Zhuang: Bo Secretly Executed Prisoners
With Bo’s downfall, his crimes of organ harvesting from living
people and corpse trade by he and his wife, Gu Kailai, are gradually disclosed.
Recently, this has been a hot topic.
On October 4, Beijing lawyer Li Zhuang released word on his
microblog that during the ‘attacking black forces’ in Chongqing,
99% of the executions of death row inmates did not follow
the provision regarding ‘death row inmates meeting with family’
as set forth by the CCP supreme court, supreme procuratorate,
and the Chongqing highest public security division.
Nearly all were secretly executed first, and then there family
received notice to pick up ashes of the deceased loved one.
No family disposed in person the remains
of the death row inmates.
Consequently, some family questioned if the organs
were complete before the cremation of their loved ones.
Li Zhuang’s message caused many microblog postings.
Some said, “In China, trade of organs from death row inmates
is far from a secret; the government admitted it too.”
Some said, “The family members of the deceased do not even
know if the ashes are legitimate, let alone if the organs were untouched."
Four Young Tibetans Heavily Sentenced
Reporters Without Borders, headquartered in Paris, issued
a statement on October 4 to condemn the CCP authorities’
heavy sentence of four Tibetans who tried to convey
the message of self-immolation to the outside world.
The statement said that the Chinese communist authorities
banned reporters from interviewing in Tibetan areas,
cut off Tibet’s communication to the outside,
so local Tibetans have become the only informants.
Reporters without Borders quoted Tibetans in exile in India
who revealed that four young Tibetans were sentenced to 7 to 11 years in prison in courts in Sichuan,
on charges of releasing messages about the self-immolation
of Tibetans and CCP suppression in Tibet.
Three of them are monks, and one is only 17 years old.
