The media and netizens in Guangdong, the pioneer province of reform, are the most active in joining Xi Jinping’s fight against corruption.

Ming Pao said that Southern Metropolis Daily exposed the luxurious banquet given to responsible persons in Zhuhai financial circles by Zhou Shaoqiang, general manager of Zhuhai Financial Investment Corporation, a state-owned company.

Zhuhai’s State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Committee made an investigation and claimed that the banquets cost only 4,689 yuan ($753) instead of 37,517 yuan ($6,023) as exposed.

Zhuhai Discipline Inspection Commission intervened and found by investigation the banquets indeed cost more than 30,000 yuan ($4,817), 8 times as much as the Committee alleged. The Commission suspended Zhou’s job and ordered participants in the banquets to pay the part in excess of $753.

In addition, Zhao Haibin, deputy party secretary of Shijie Town, Lufeng City, was exposed to have two identities (hukou) and to own 192 properties. He has been put under investigation by Lufeng City’s discipline inspection commission.

According to SCMP, Xinhua has also joined the fight and reported that in a county in Jilin, the police station charged 30,000 yuan ($4,817) to 50,000 yuan ($8,027) for a fake hukou and attracted quite a few customers.

SCMP says in its report today, “Faking a hukou, or proof of residency, could easily make the real owner of properties less visible. Zhai Zhenfeng, a former director of the housing administration bureau in Zhengzhou in the central province of Henan, and three family members all had two hukou and between them owned 31 properties, it was revealed in December.”

Due to the convenience to conceal and quick appreciation in value, properties have been corrupt officials’ favourite investment.

SCMP said that 10 corrupt officials, reported by whistle-blowers in the past two months, each owned more than a dozen properties.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
