2 Billion Corruption Story of Shanghai CCP Secretary
A victim of forced demolition recently disclosed that
in order to scrabble the power in the 18th Congress of CCP
(Chinese Communist Party), Wang Yang, the CCP Secretary
of Guangdong instructed the Nanfang Daily Media Group
under his charge to criticize Bo Xilai’s campaign of
“Singing red songs and suppressing mafia” in Chongqing city.
Meanwhile, the it exposed the CCP Secretary of Shanghai,
Yu Zhengsheng, and his henchmen who have embezzled
RMB 2 billion yuan of household relocation funds
for building the Beijing-Shanghai highspeed rail.
Since the case was found to have involved Chen Zhili and
Jiang Mianheng, Jiang Zemin’s mistress and son, respectively,
the CCP’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection
(CCDI) wrapped up the case in a hasty and slapdash way.
During the 66th U.N. General Assembly, Zeng Xiamin,
a Shanghai-based petitioner came to the U.N. Headquarters,
protesting the CCP authorities for seizing her land and
her private house.
In February, 2010, over 300 policemen conducted a violent
demolition of her residence,
During the violent process, Zeng had three front teeth
knocked out, and her mother and grandmother were injured.
According to Zeng’s article published online, Chen Xiaoying,
a reporter from the 21st Century Business Herald of
the Nanfang Daily Media Group was asked by Wang Yang
to interview many demolition households during the building
of Beijing-Shanghai high-speed rail, including Zeng herself.
Wu Fan (Editor-in-Chief, China Affairs magazine):
“Before the CCP’s 18th National Congress, the CCP officials
unsparingly attack counterpart’s weaknesses.
The high-speed rails are under the control of Jiang’s clique,
so Wang certainly seized this opportunity to give his rivalry
a blow. This is typical in the CCP’s internal struggle.”
Around March 2010, Chen Xiaoying went to Zeng’s home
several times to interview her.
Chen repeatly told her that there was central-level officials
behind her, she did not need to fear of Yu Zhengsheng.
Chen said that Yu and the corrupt officials in Shanghai
must be brought down.
Chen Xiaoying and her boss repeatedly promised that
they could ensure Zeng’s security for her disclosure..
Zeng provided Chen with a lot of information, including
irrefutable evidences of corruption by Yu Zhengsheng and
his henchmen for RMB 2 billions of compensation
for Beijing-Shanghai high-speed rail project.
Zeng acquired all these evidences through her relatives
and friends who are officers in the government.
Afterwards, Chen Xiaoying published an article on
the 21st Century Business Herald,
entitled “Embezzlement of 2 Billion Loans for Beijing-Shanghai
High-Speed Rail” among others, exposing dozens of
corrupt officials including Shanghai Vice Mayor Shen Jun
and the CCP Secretary of Jiangqiao Town, Fu Yifeng.
The CCDI quickly dispatched a task force for investigation,
and Shenzhen Office of National Audit Office also came in.
After a year’s investigation, Zeng’s evidences were
confirmed to be true, but only Fu Yifeng was removed
from office, without touching Yu Zhengsheng and Shen Jun.
Zeng said that Fu Yifeng was later appointed as
the CCP Secretary of a town in Qingpu District, Shanghai,
but Fu refused to take the new appointment.
He still worked at the Jiangqiao town government.
It is known to the local folks that Fu’s backstage supporter
is Chen Zhili and Jiang Mianheng.
Three of them are said to have sworn to form allegiance.
Chen was Jiang Zemin’s old love when he was in Shanghai.
If Song Zuying is called the "National Mother of the CCP"
Chen Zhili can be called "Queen Mother of the CCP Regime."
During the Cultural Revolution, Chen Zhili was dispatched
to Caowang Town, Jiading District, where she became
the goddaughter of Fu’s mother.
Later after Chen’s soaring promotion, Fu, a native peasant,
also followed this fortune. Even Xi Jinping, Vice Chairman of
the CCP, has to show courtesy towards Fu.
However, since then, Zeng’s family, her relatives and friends,
have suffered retaliation by the CCP’s Shanghai authorities.
Zeng was imprisoned over 20 times. In Novermber, 2010,
she suffered forced eviction and demolition again.
Jiangqiao Town authorities gathered a group of security guards
and hired thugs against Zeng, while Zeng’s family prepared axes,
propane gas and gasoline bottles for a desperate fight.
Zeng Xiamin: “There were over a dozen of mafia members
beating us. My mother’s hands were injured.
My grandmother suffered a heart attack, falling to the ground.
One of the reasons behind this is retaliation, for I had met
with the U.S. consular talking about this issue.
Another reason is that the central government was investigating
their secret deals in the real estate here, so they were eager
to chase us away and clear the property quickly at a low price.”
Zeng said that in Shanghai, Yu Zhengsheng vigorously
launched image projects, such as Shanghai World Expo,
Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway among others.
Yu offered on-site guidance to the demolition team,
and can be entitled as a demolition magnate in China.
Back when Yu was the CCP secretary of Qingdao, he began
to conduct illegal forced evictions and demolitions locally.
In 1998, Yu was appointed the Minister of Construction.
He offered to the State Council a plan based on
his demolition experiences in Qingdao.
Later, when he served as the CCP secretary of Hubei and
the CCP secretary of Shanghai, Yu kept promoting policies
for eviction and demolition, triggering numerous petitions.
