China: Seventy police make graft claims against top Shanghai judge

The acting president of the Shanghai High Court has been accused of corruption and abuse of power during his time as a provincial police chief.

The accusations levelled at Cui Yadong were contained in a letter signed by 70 police officers, who said that, while head of the police in Guizhou province, he used his position to enrich himself through kickbacks and private business schemes.

Cui came under fire after video posted online earlier this month showed four judges in Shanghai visiting a nightclub and leaving with prostitutes.

The following week, Cui angered internet users when he said in a speech that the scandal had given “foreign hostile forces” an opportunity to attack the Communist Party and the mainland’s judiciary. He announced a six-month “moral education campaign” for judges.

The letter, dated June 15 and signed by the Guizhou police officers with their thumbprints, began to circulate online yesterday. The post was later removed from a microblog site and the Yangcheng Evening News website.

The letter made 16 accusations against Cui concerning his time as Guizhou’s chief of police and head of the powerful Politics and Law Commission from 2006 until his appointment as Shanghai’s acting top judge in April this year.

The accusations include building a luxurious penthouse villa at a police dormitory, awarding contracts for police construction projects to property developers in return for kickbacks, and claiming more than 20 million yuan (HK$25 million) in entertainment expenses for family members and friends from his home province of Anhui .

Cui was also accused of using his position to profit from a famous liquor that often features at banquets for the rich and powerful, and has long been a source of corruption. Cui, they said, had a vast private supply of the liquor, paid for from public funds, which he then sold for a profit.

“The security protection department of the provincial police bureau bought 10 tonnes of the liquor every year, of which Cui took away six tonnes for himself. Over five years, he appropriated 30 tonnes of the liquor in total,” the letter alleges.

“Just before he set off for Shanghai, he took four tonnes of the liquor from the security protection department,” it claims.

The letter also alleges Cui bribed “cadres” at a state liquor producer to help him register liquor outlets in Anhui, where he then sold its products.

Neither the Shanghai Higher People’s Court nor the Guizhou police responded to requests for comment.

The letter said Cui spent 1.2 million yuan on a Volkswagen Touareg sports utility vehicle and handed out flats at police barracks as favours.

It also claimed he converted nine flats on the top three floors of a dormitory for police officers into a villa.

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. 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.
