Zeng Qinghong’s Son Apparently Arrested in The U.S.
Zeng Wei, a Chinese mogul was arrested on January 27 when
entring Saipan by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Zeng was a wanted fugitive from Hong Kong, and the subject
of an arrest warrant from Hong Kong.
In 2010 Zeng Wei was accused by Hong Kong authorities
of bribery and conspiracy.
Saipan Tribune reported that Zeng was arrested last Thursday
when he used a different identity to try to enter Saipan, and
was identified by a biometrics match of his fingerprints.
Voice of America reported earlier that Zeng Wei, a frequent
media figure overseas was known by the media that he is the
son of former Chinese Communist Party Politburo Standing
Committee Zeng Qinghong.
He spent $32.4 million on a mansion in Australia.
Chinese Caixin.com reported that Zeng Wei formerly worked
for Hong Kong newspapers, and claimed there is “no kinship
with former Politburo Standing Committee”.

Lawyer: Xu Zhiyong Will Appeal
Xu Zhiyong was recently sentenced to four years in prison
on charges of “gathering a crowd to disturb public order".
Reuters reported that Xu Zhiyong’s defense lawyer Zhang
Qingfang said Xu believes his conviction could set a bad
precedent for others on trial, therefore, he will appeal against
Xu’s lawyer, Zhang Qingfang, said Xu was concerned about
the six other activists on trial this week, one of whom will be
sentenced on Wednesday, reported Reuters.
Zhang told Reuters that he would file an appeal for Xu
within 10 days.

win a lighter sentence with the appeal, they planned to use the
opportunity to lay out their points of view about the case.
