Local Retired Official Called For Harsh Punishment Of Jiang Zemin
Zhao Zhengrong is a retired local official of the Zhaotong City
Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Discipline Inspection.
On Sept. 2, Zhao Zhengrong sent an open letter to CCP head
Xi Jinping and the head of CCP the Central Commission
for Discipline and Inspection Committee Wang Qishan,
demanding harsh punishment for the former CCP Head
Jiang Zemin, who is alleged to have implemented
a corrupt governance.
Last June, prior to the Eighth CCP Congress, Zhao Zhengrong
and 15 other local officials signed a letter calling for
the dismissal of the official position of Zhou Yongkang,
who was then head of the Politics and Law Committee.
He later received death threats.
Zhao Zhengrong said in the open letter that from
the television news he knew Zhou Yongkang
had been investigated and he felt very delighted.
The entire hospital ward, including doctors, nurses
and patients were all clapping and cheering.
He asked for a little swig of wine, released the hatred in
the heart, and the pains related to the disease disappeared.
In the final section of the open letter, Zhao Zhengrong
requested the “severe punishment of Jiang Zemin
who implemented a corrupt governance."
Zhao Zhengrong told an NTD reporter that Jiang Zemin
did not benefit the country.
He even continued interfering
in domestic affairs after retirement.
Zhao Zhengrong: “After stepping down,
he should have become an ordinary CCP member.
But he (Jiang) chose to intervene in the administration
led by the CCP Head Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao.
He also established offices at Zhongnanhai and the Central
Military Commission of the CCP Central Commission.
He meddled in everything."
After Jiang’s retirement, he continued controlling the army
through his cronies Xu Caihou and Guo Boxiong so seriously
that former Primier Wen Jiabao could not mobilize the army
at the time the Wenchuan earthquake occurred.
Zhao Zhengrong: “Especially during the Wenchuan
earthquake, Premier Wen was unable to mobilize troops.
He was so anxious that he had to hang up the phone.
He (Jiang) controlled the army, mastered this thing,
and missed a lot of great events in our country."
Zhao Zhengrong said that punishing Jiang Zemin
is a request from people across the country.
Zhao Zhengrong: “This is not my personal wish, it is the wish
of the whole society, of the whole Zhaotong region,
of all friends around me, and also the requirements
of all people of the country.
It is time to punish him."
Zhao Zhengrong also revealed the reason for the request
of the repeal of Zhou Yongkang’s position
by publishing an open letter.
At the time, Zhao Zhengrong and his friends suggested
that Zhou Yongkang should not be allowed to have
a “peaceful landing" via the Eighteenth CCP Congress.
Zhao Zhengrong also argued in an article written
due to Hong Kong media invitation why it is necessary
to dismiss Zhou Yongkang.
He pointed out that without the support of Zhou Yongkang,
it was impossible for Bo Xilai to popularize
the so-called “Singing Red songs and attacking the black"
campaign in Chongqing.
Second, the politics and law system controlled by Zhou
has a fund that exceeds the annual defense budget.
Again, Zhou”s stabilizing the society wrongly targeted
In June of 2013, Zhao Zhengrong and 15 other local officials
of Zhaotong City wrote an open letter to the authorities
to revoke Zhou Yongkang’s Head position of the Politics
and Law Committee of the CCP Central Commission.
The letter also opposed Liu Yunshan’s induction into
the Politburo Standing Committee of the Eighteenth CCP Congress.
After the open letter was jointly issued, all local government
departments where 16 signed officials worked
before retirement were all implicated.
The “Advanced" title for the department which
Zhao Zhengrong worked for before retirement
was revoked, and the incumbent heads
of the department was also criticized.
16 signers were required one by one
to talk to the local public security bureau.
Zhao Zhengrong also received death threats via phone.
Zhao Zhengrong: “After we issued the open letter,
I also received the threats from Zhou Yongkang’s
administrative departments saying,
you are a traitor party, your head should be careful.
I listened to the words of this death threat
But in order to get the evidence, I said,
I could not clearly hear what you said, what did you say?
You had better send a letter to me.”
Then I received an open message,
but removed “kill us" on the message.
Zhao Zhengrong immediately showed the police
the intimidation information, and claimed
for the safety and security of the open letter signers.
Zhao Zhengrong: “One police officers asked me
to go to the local police station.
I was then on fire and told him, the local police station
did not talk to me, did not ask me to leave fingerprints.
It”s you Public Security Bureau looking for me."
Jiang Zemin took the position of the Head of the CCP
for 10 years.
After he retired from the position, he held the position
of Chairman of the Central Military Committee
of the CCP Central Commission.
He implemented governance by using corruption
as a means of bribery and abducting officials,
and this caused the Chinese society to be deeply mired
in a disastrous status with “no official is not corrupt."
In addition, regardless of other members of the Politburo
Standing Committee against his arbitrariness, Jiang Zemin
launched the crackdown on Falun Gong in 1999, and caused
incalculable damage on hundreds of millions
of Chinese people in mainstream of society.
Especially after the evil crime of organ harvesting from living
Falun Gong practitioners was exposed, the strong
condemnation from the international community sparked
an unprecedented crisis of the Chinese Communist regime.
He, Bo Xilai, Zhou Yongkang and other officials who all have
actively persecuted Falun Gong, are all members
of the bloody debt gang.
At the beginning of this open letter, Zhao Zhengrong wrote,
“demand a severe punishment on the head of the bloody
debt gang Jiang Zemin who implemented
the corrupt governance."
At the end of the letter, he reiterated to “severely
punish Jiang Zemin who executed rule of the corrupt."
