Tycoon Li Peng’s Family To Flee China?
The Epoch Times published on Nov. 11, that China’s power
industry tycoon Li Peng’s family is preparing to flee China.
The report says rumors had it, Li Peng’s three children
are transferring assets to Singapore and Australia.
The large amount of money draws the attention of
the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC), an anti-money laundering government agency.
AUSTRAC released this information
to the Chinese authorities.
Li Peng’s family is known to control
half of China’s power industry.
A rumor went viral on the internet late June
about a strange investigation.
It said, China Guodian Corporation, controlled by Li Peng’s
daughter Li Xiaolin, is under secret investigation by the task force of Bo Xilai and Gu Kailai’s caseя.
China Guodian Corporation played a key role
in the realization of Bo Xilai’s “Chongqing’s Five Goals.”
CCP’s “Zero Appeal”
During Chinese Communist Party’ (CCP) 18th congress,
authorities dispatched staff to head off petitioners in Beijing.
According to Hong Kong media, the National Petition Office
recently had “zero appeal” that’s very rarely seen.
The report says, plainclothes and many police cars from
different provinces showed up near National Petition Office and bus stops.
Many petitioners were arrested in Beijing.
The petitioner Zhang Yaodong, from Pingdingshan City
of Henan Province, was arrested in a hotel in Beijing.
He was beaten to death by police the next day,
on the way back to his hometown.
RFA reported that 30 Shanghai petitioners were arrested
in Beijing on the opening day of the 18th CCP congress.
Village petitioners from Chaoyang District
have been prohibited to go out for days.
Forced Beijing Security Volunteers
Meanwhile, Beijing also has over 1.4 million
so called security volunteers.
AFP interviewed 20 of the volunteers, and found that
not all volunteers were willing to be volunteers.
Also this work has almost no financial compensation.
The report says not all volunteers can get compensation.
Some of them get nothing.
A retired worker said even if there was some payment,
it’d be given to the Street Committee, not the volunteers.
The only compensation for those security guards, working
on the streets in the cold are their uniforms, laundry detergent, some cooking oil, etc.
A retired teacher volunteer explained
the nature of this security work.
He said, if he sees something unusual or petitioners,
he must report to the Street Committee or call the police.
He also said, no matter how reasonable petitioners’ motives
may be, only police has the right to make decision on them.
