Judges from Shanghai Soliciting Prostitutes Together — Jiang Zemin is the Creator of the Bad Precedents
A video exposed five Shanghai Superior Court officers who
solicited prostitutes, causing a public sensation.
Ironically, the places that court officers go to solicit
prostitutes are labeled as “major reception sites of People’s Government of Shanghai City.”
Some commentators stated that Shanghai judicial system
is corrupt to such a degree that Jiang Zemin, former
Municipal Secretary of Shanghai, cannot absolve himself
On August 1, a Sina micro-blogger disclosed that quite
a few judges from Shanghai Superior Court went soliciting
prostitutes in Hengshan Resort, Pudong New District.
A related eight-minute long video was posted online.
Video clips, which were taken in the elevator, hotel corridor
as well as from the monitoring video record, subtitled the time, location, persons concerned and the event.
The micro-blogger claimed that this year on June 9th
and 11th, five officers of the court solicited prostitutes
in the largest and most luxurious room, “Diamond No.1,”
in Hengshan Resort.
Among them was Chen Xueming (Associate Dean
of Shanghai Superior Court) and Zhao Minghua (Vice President of the Court).
Chen Xueming hand-picked quite a few hookers.
The video shows those five officials took the elevator,
checked in and then the hookers went into their room respectively.
The responses from Shanghai Superior Court confirmed
that Chen Xuming is the President of Shanghai Superior Court and Zhao Minghua is the Vice President.
Commentator Shi Da: ”If one official did such a thing
secretively, you can think that it’s only that person’s personal behavior.
However, if five officials did it collectively,
it’s a lot more severe.
It only means that the system has rotten to the core.
Going whoring has become the culture of the party’s
The person who disclosed the news told Jinghua Times
that he wants justice in a civil case which he got involved in.
The prosecutor and lawyer are both Zhao Minghua’s
He thinks that Zhao Minghua’s interference in the case
has lead to the unfair decision of the court.
In order to collect evidence of Zhao Minghua’s breach of law,
he has been working diligently for a whole year.
By all means, now he is holding a series of videos as proof
and the one from Hengshan Resort is only one of them.
He also said that his target was only Zhao Minghua.
It was totally a coincidence that he also caught
Chen Xueming and thee other court officers.
Commentator Ren Baiming: “Those officials were caught
when they were avenged and being followed secretively, and thus were exposed.
Nonetheless, those officials’ ‘normal entertainment’
has come into vogue and is known by everybody.”
The person also said that he received threatening phone
calls after he published those videos.
However, he still submitted the 30-hours long complete
version of the videos to Shanghai Municipal Discipline Committee.
Meanwhile, Shanghai Municipal Discipline Committee
confirmed the authenticity of the videos.
South Metropolis disclosed that Hengshan Resort hangs
a sign saying “Designated Hotel for Party and Government Officials’ Business Trip.”
On its website, Hengshan Resort claims itself as a “Major
Reception Site of the People’s Government of Shanghai City.”
Shi Da: “Shanghai’s judicial system is corrupt to this point,
and Jiang Zemin can hardly absolve himself from the blame.
Jiang Zemin was a playboy during Japanese puppet period
and whoring was his hobby.
When he visited the United States,
the first thing he did was solicit prostitutes.
As a matter of fact, one of my friends’ father was working
in that hotel.
When they learned what Jiang Zemin did, they were furious.”
Commentator Ren Baiming stated that the CCP officials’
corruption in sexuality, money and power went rampant starting from Jiang Zemin’s office term.
Ren Baiming: “After Jiang Zemin took office, he ruled
the country with the ideology of corruption, that is,
he encouraged officials to go rogue with their power.
Then he collected the evidence of the officials being corrupt,
thus controlled the officials with the evidence.”
On August 3, state-run media Xinhua.net declared
that anyone or any business unit who
transmits monitoring videos without permission
will be fined as much as 30,000 Yuan.
This new regulation will be effective from October 1, 2013.
Many internet users commented on this new regulation,
saying that it’s “a timely response” to the exposed video
regarding Shanghai court officers’ collective whoring.
However, it has only made the situation uglier.
