Jackie Chan´s Son in Drug Arrest at a Sensitive Moment
A short while ago, Taiwanese actor Ko Chen-tung was
reportedly arrested in Beijing on drug charges.
It seems that Hong Kong action superstar Jackie Chan´s son,
Jaycee Chan (Fang Zuming) was arrested together with Ko.
In the evening of August 18, Beijing police confirmed that
Chan and Ko had been detained on drug charges.
Commentators say Jackie Chan may be witnessing the start
of his fall from grace since he has been a follower of Jiang
Zemin, who is quickly losing his power right now.
Beijing Police officially released a weibo message saying that
Hong Kong actor Jaycee Chan and Taiwanese actor Ko Chen-
tung, had been put into detention on drug charges on Aug 14.
Chan and Ko were both tested positive for marijuana.
The police found over 100 grams of marijuana
in Chan´s home.
Jaycee Chan was placed into criminal detention for
harboring suspected drug users.
Ko is under administrative detention now
on charge of drug use.
Chan posessing 100 grams of marijuana, exceeds
the amount allowed for personal use.
Taiwanese media said, as Jaycee Chan stayed in Beijing in
he had invited many actor friends to his residence to party.
He was suspected of providing places for drug use,
or even offering marijuana to others.
According to the Chinese Communist Party´s (CCP) law,
illicitly trafficking drugs of over 50 grams leads to a
minimum of 3 to 5 years in jail and even the death sentence
in the worst cases.
Jackie Chan landed in Beijing on August 18 after learning
about the arrest of his son.
An embarrassing fact is that, Ko once served as Taiwan´s
Jackie Chan did the same for mainland China.
In March 2014, Jackie Chan openly said he had confidence
in how he educated his son.
Jackie Chan even said he would bring his son to the police
by himself if Jaycee did anything wrong.
Zhang Chengjue, Hong Kong writer, “this is very
embarrassing for Jackie Chan.
He always advocates about how good mainland China is,
but now has to face his son’s scandal.
However, its likely he will not realize
I think he will continue to do things in his old ways.
We have seen very clearly that Jackie Chan is simply a
protector of the CCP´s dictatorship regime."
Jackie Chan is well known for his support toward the CCP.
Last August, many Chinese complained about
the heavy haze in Beijing.
At that time, Jackie Chan posted three photos on weibo,
saying “Who says there is no blue sky in Beijing?
See how blue the sky is and how green the earth is".
Last January, Jackie Chan criticized the US as the most
corrupt state in the world during a TV interview.
Back in 2009, Jackie Chan was appointed as Hong Kong´s
He said in Boao Forum that, “Taiwan and Hong Kong are
chaotic because they give too much freedom to their people";
“Chinese need to be controlled".
There were also media reports about Jackie Chan´s close
relationship with Bo Guagua, the son of Bo Xilai.
Chan once visited Britain just to voice support for Bo Guagua
in an election for president of Oxford´s Student Union.
Jackie Chan also stays close to Zhao Benshen, a famous
Chinese skit actor.
They helped each other as guests many times,
with photos posted online.
Zhao was reportedly involved in the coup plotted by
Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai.
During the Two Meetings of 2014, Chan´s intimate photos
with Song Zuying became a hot topic on the Internet.
Song was well known as Jiang Zemin´s mistress.
Political commentator Lin Zixu said, considering Jackie Chan´s
close relationship with CCP leaders, the arrest of his son is
an unusual incident.
Lin Zixu, “Jaycee Chan has a strong family background.
Even if he is arrested, Beijing police should not have easily
touched his case like that.
That should be very risky for them. Probably someone is
controlling everything behind the scene.
Its clear that, some CCP leader is making trouble for
Especially Beijing police announced on weibo that over 100
grams of marijuana were found in Jaycee´s home.
This is obviously to make big news."
Chen Simin, column writer of the Epoch Times, said Jaycee
Chan did use drugs, but this was not his first time of doing
that and the police should have known that long ago.
Why did the police arrest him now?
Chen commented that, the “bomb" needed to be triggered
at the right moment.
Jaycee´s case was exposed right after Hong Kong´s
“Anti-Occupy" Rally on Aug 17.
This indicates the real purpose is to warn Jiang Zemin and
his followers behind Jackie Chan.
Lin Zixu,"we all know that in the CCP´s political circles,
you can do everything with power.
Not only drug users, but even murderers can be absolved.
So the incident tells us that Jackie Chan´s boss is not
That is to say, Jiang Zemin is not able to
protect him anymore.
As a long advocate of the CCP and Jiang Zemin´s supporter,
Jackie Chan is only seeing the start of his losses."
Chen Simin said, besides the arrest of Jaycee Chan, the CCP
also officially announced investigation of officials in Nanjing
and Lianyungang of Jiangsu province, including Lu Yunfei,
Lianyungang´s director of 610 Office.
The Xinhua News Agency released an article titled
“Illicit Organ Trade Will Be Under Strict Investigation."
Chen said the whole story becomes clear by putting
all those reports together.
