Revealed: emerging trends behind China's anti-corruption drive Reblog of Ernest Kao’s blog at SCMP on Wednesday, 30 January, 2013, Since Xi Jinping took the reins as the party chief last year, he has made several pledges to fight corruption in China. Those who don't make the cut, he has stressed, will be purged. The epic Bo Xilai saga aside, “violations of party discipline” (a fancier name for graft) have so far revolved around many of the same offences, namely embezzlement, bribery, nepotism and abuse of power. While 2011 was all about misbehaving fuerdai (rich second generation) political brats crashing sports cars, 2012 was all about officials getting grilled for possessing ridiculous amounts of personal assets such as property, money and recently, expensive watches. Fake hukous seem to be the “it” corruption offence of late. Sex scandals are also on the rise, and because of Sina Weibo, they are becoming increasingly humiliating for exposed officials. China blog Danwei billed 2012 the annus h ...

Introduction: The People’s Republic of China (PRC) has been troubled of late by widespread social unrest, slowing economic growth, and rampant official corruption as revealed by the Bo Xilai scandal. Less obvious to the outside world, however, have been the two sharply contrasting and controversial perspectives on the country’s near- to medium-term future that are now locked in mutual contention. These two rival scenarios reflect fundamentally different assessments of the socioeconomic situation and likely political trajectory of the world’s most populous country. The first scenario envisions an abrupt bottom-up revolution. This assessment has recently generated much heated intellectual and political debate in the PRC. In December 2011, the thirty-year-old best-selling author Han Han (China’s most popular blogger whose site has registered well over 580 million hits) posted a now-famous essay titled “On Revolution.” Although Han argues that “revolution is hardly a good option for China,” hi ...

Surviving Bo Xilai's reign of red terror SCMP’s investigation finds what tyranny Chongqing was under when Bo Xilai was the party boss there. The persecution of defense lawyer was already a clear sign of the despotism there, but Bo remained media’s favorite in spite of that. I sometimes wonder with such charm to infatuate common people and the media, Xi might have easily been elected Chinese president if there had been a democratic presidential election in China before Bo’s downfall. Full text of SCMP’s report from Chongqing is given below: In the second part of our Revisiting Chongqing series, we meet the people punished harshly for even the smallest gesture of dissent against Bo Xilai On a two-hour flight from Beijing to Chongqing early this month, Ren Jianyu spent most of the time with his face pressed against the window, watching the clouds streak past. At one point he murmured: "This is freedom." The 25-year-old former village official was freed late last month after serving 15 months in a Cho ...

Chongqing Sex Scandal Grows, 5 More Officials Involved Chongqing Party Discipline Inspection Commission said yesterday that it was extending its investigation that began after the posting of a photo of District Party Secretary Lei Zhengfu having sex with a young mistress. The Commission vowed that it had “zero tolerance” for violation of law or discipline by leading cadres and would make investigation whenever there is a clue. In fact, it is an easy job for the Commission to discover such malpractices. Chinese people know well the rampant malpractices of corruption and keeping mistresses among party officials; therefore I gave my post the day before yesterday the title “Corruption, Mistress Common, Those Caught Are Unlucky Ones”. According to Singtao Daily, a whistleblower has disclosed that there are sex videos of five more bureau-level officials. SCMP reveals in its report today that the whistleblower is Zhu Ruifen who has released the sex video involving Lei Zhengfu and said he has the said vid ...

At a routine meeting on March 28, the State Council decided to launch a financial reform pilot project in Wenzhou. The decision mentions 12 tasks assigned to the project, but people have no idea that it was the beginning of a radical reform. They thought think that it merely aimed at making loans available for small and medium-sized private enterprises. However, it in fact aimed at removing state-owned enterprises’ monopoly of the financial sector. In a speech the same day, Premier Wen Jiabao said that it was too easy for state-owned banks to make money as there is no competition from the private sector. Word Bank’s report also suggests breaking the monopoly of state-owned enterprises. In my previous post, I mentioned China’s three previous waves of economic liberalization: Liberation of the agricultural sector by Zhao Ziyang; initial liberation of the industrial sector by allowing the private sector by Zhao Ziyang, Jiang Zemin and Zhu Rongji and transforming the state-owned sector (selling small en ...

Thoughts on China’s New Leaders: Conservative Immobility or Streamlined Decisions? Western pundits have pronounced China’s new leadership team “conservative,” meaning reactionary old communists who won’t be able to get anything done. After all, our favorites got left out. Wang Yang, who solved a village crisis in Guangdong with democratic reform, didn’t make it. Nor did my personal favorite, Li Yuanchao, who had made a “democratic personality” prerequisite for high promotion. Wang Qishan, the vigorous market-oriented reformer, got put in charge of discipline rather than the economy. Hence the conclusion that bureaucrats and reactionaries are in charge. But that is not the Chinese view. In Chinese terms this leadership is centrist and stripped down to get things moving. Both the charismatic reactionaries (Bo Xilai) and the charismatic reformers (Wang Yang) have been sidelined as disruptive, the reactionaries much more decisively. (Imagine Washington with a ban on the Tea Party and ...

Red Song Rebel Released after Terror in Labor Camp Ren Jianyu, 25, a college graduate appointed by the party to be a village official at Pengshui County, Chongqing, denounced Bo Xilai’s sing-red campaign in his microblog. Last September, Chongqing police accused him of the crime of instigating to overthrow the state power and gave him a verdict of two-year imprisonment in a reeducation labor camp. The verdict has roused widespread concern among Chongqing people. On the afternoon of November 19, Chongqing Labor Reeducation Committee crashed the verdict claiming that “the verdict was inappropriately given” and released Ren from Jiangjin District labor camp. Earlier in October this year, Ren sued the Committee for violation of the law in imprisoning him in the labor camp. A verdict on his case was given yesterday by Chongqing No. 3 Intermediate People’s Court to dismiss Ren’s claim on the ground that the legal period of time allowed for the litigation had expired. Ren said, “I have tremendously l ...

China's New Leader Warns Against Corruption China's new leader Xi Jinping has warned officials that they must fight corruption or risk ruining the country, strong words that come after a series of corruption investigations targeted high-level leaders in recent years. Xi told the new 25-member Politburo that the party must be vigilant against graft, noting that corruption in other countries in recent years had prompted major social unrest and the collapse of governments, the official Xinhua News Agency reported on Monday. "The large number of facts tells us that if the problem of corruption becomes increasingly severe, it will lead to the ruin of the party and the country," Xi said. In his remarks, Xi dwelled at length on the importance of the party's theoretical foundations in Marxism, Leninism and the ideas espoused by his predecessors, and said leaders had to be mindful of the practical realities of running the country and reconnecting with the population. "In recent years, within our party there have b ...
