British Businessman Neil Heywood's Death Investigated By Wang Lijun

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews On March 28th, the BBC revealed news on Wang Lijun, former deputy mayor of Chongqing. Prior to going to the US Consulate in Chengdu, Wang arranged to meet officials in Chongqing's UK Consulate. This may have something to do with the death of British businessman Neil Heywood. Having close ties of 20 years with Bo Xilai's family, Heywood is suspected of being intelligence personnel. Recently, this has become the focus of the world's mainstream media. BBC announced that British government sources confirmed, Wang Lijun had arranged to meet with UK Consulate staff. The meeting was to take place in February, in the UK' Consulate in Chongqing, but Wang did not show up. A few hours later, Wang Lijun entered the US Consulate in Chengdu. BBC said, this may have to do with the death of Heywood, which was investigated by Wang Lijun. Heywood was a British businessman, and had many contacts with Bo Xilai's family. Tkacik, director of US' program Future of Asia and former US Deputy Consul in Guangzhou, spoke on the issue. Tkacik thinks Wang's entry to the US Consulate was for life protection and negotiation with the Chinese Communist Party' (CCP) government. Wang's intention of going to UK' Consulate may be related to the unexplained death of Heywood in November last year. Heywood's family in the UK was told, that Heywood died due to heart attack. However, CCP's explanation to the British Embassy was that Heywood's death was due to alcohol overdose. Wall Street Journal reported on March 26th, that a number of sources mentioned in an interview about a different death. They said, Wang Lijun had claimed that his and Bo Xilai's falling is due to him telling Bo about Heywood's poisoning. A source said, according to Wang Bo Xilai's wife Gu Kailai and Haywood were involved in commercial disputes. British' Guardian revealed, it was Heywood that helped Bo's couple to send their son to Harrow School, Oxford University. In an official internal report on Wang Lijun's case, a local official explains the issue. Wang found the issues of Bo's family in his investigation, and reported to Bo Xilai about it. This caused discontent in Bo and led to intensification of the conflicts between Wang Lijun and Bo Xilai. Chongqing police' sources said to Asia Week, Wang Lijun was involved in Heywood's case at the end of 2011, and had questioned the cause of Heywood's death. But they could not confirm that there were disputes between Bo Xilai and Wang Lijun. However, what makes this case become hot rapidly is the identity of Heywood. Wall Street Journal from March 27th, also spoke about Heywood, the British businessman who died in Chongqing. They said, Heywood sometimes provided consulting services to a British strategic intelligence company. The company's spokesman confirmed to Western media, that before Heywood died, he worked for their company. Financial New Network in mainland China also spoke about Heywood's identity as an intelligence agent. They said, if this is confirmed, the close ties of Bo's family with foreign intelligence officer will be added to Bo Xilai's investigation, and will be another heavy blow to Bo. Hong Kong's Apple Daily analyzed that through the contacts with Bo Xilai's son Bo Guagua, Heywood purposely approached the inner circle of Bo Xilai's family. Thus he found out a lot about Bo Xilai's secrets, that are unknown by the outside world. Eventually Bo Xilai found out about this, and killed him to silence him, thinks the media. Senior Chinese journalist Gao Yu said, when the truth of Gu Kailai and Wang Lijun is revealed, the world will be amazed. In the one-party dictatorship system, each of the high CCP officials in fact can expect the same fate as Bo Xilai. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Questions in China over Briton murder probe

His death has placed British businessman Neil Heywood at the heart of a Chinese political scandal with the wife of a senior politician named as a suspect in his murder. British businessman Neil Heywood's death in China last year has placed him posthumously at the centre of a Chinese political scandal after the wife of a disgraced politician was named as a suspect in a murder investigation into his possible killing. Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from London on what led Heywood to China and how he became embroiled in an investigation that some say has destroyed the reputation of Bo Xilai, a man once tipped as a future leaderof the People's Republic.

Bo Xilai and Wife Implicated in Murder of British Citizen

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews The truth of the Wang Lijun and Bo Xilai incident remains murky to the public so far. Related scandals are being exposed continually. Recent reports accuse Bo Xilai and his wife of being part of several murder cases—one being the mysterious death of Bo Xilai's son, Bo Guagua's personal British nanny, which aroused official attention in the U.K. The U.K has formally requested the Chinese Communist Party(CCP) for an investigation into the case. On March 24, Chinese internet posts reported the death of Bo Guagua's British Nanny, Nick Heywood. Yang Haipeng, former journalist of Today's Finance, revealed the news about Haywood's death in Chongqing. Local authorities did not conduct further investigations and quickly cremated the body. Wang Lijun, former police chief of Chongqing, was reportedly handling the case. Later on, Southern Weekend reporter Chu Zhaoxin posted in his Weibo that Nick Heywood was murdered. Haywood's death was related to Gu Kailai, wife of former CCP Secretary of Chongqing Bo Xilai, according to Chu. Nick Heywood's case sparked international media attention. Mr. Haywood was found dead in his Chongqing hotel room in last October, the Wall Street Journal reported. A Chongqing official quickly said that Haywood died from "excessive alcohol consumption" and cremated the body. But Haywood's friends told the British Embassy that Haywood had been abstaining from drinking alcohol. The journal revealed that Wang Lijun had actually found Haywood poisoned to death, thus fell out with Bo. Wang also claimed that Bo's wife Gu Kailai had been having business disputes with Mr. Heywood. On March 25, the British Foreign Office spokesman said that the U.K. had asked China for an investigation into the case. Xinyu Zhang, founder of global free-information movement, says, because the UK government is democratically elected it will surely take responsibility in seeking an investigation into a British citizen's death. Zhang Xinyu: "It (U.K.) will certainly make a thorough investigation into the case, definitely. Once the U.K. has such determination, the CCP will have no choice but to investigate the case to the end. In the West, a case could be under investigation for over 10 years just to find out the truth." Zhao Yan, former New York Times researcher, says Heywood's case may bring further progress re Bo Xilai. Zhao Yan: "If the reports are found to be true that Bo Xilai plotted Haywood's murder, or Bo's son is found guilty for Haywood's death, that not only means an end to Bo's political life but also a criminal charge." Nick Heywood was a board member of Beijing Martin, a local dealer for Aston Martin based in U.K. Heywood's Chinese wife—who was from the city of Dalian— reportedly introduced Haywood to Bo Xilai. According to Heywood's friends, both families had close ties. Heywood had boasted about his referring business contacts to Bo Xilai. However, Bo and his wife were reportedly implicated in more murder cases other than the recent Haywood case. March 23: Hong Kong's Xinwei Monthly said Bo and his wife were involved in a plane crash in Dalian in May 2002. The disappearance of Zhang Weiji, a female Dalian TV anchor, and the death of Yuan Xianqian, daughter of former vice mayor of Dalian, were both traced to the Bo Xilai and his wife. Jiang Weiping, former Wen Wei Po journalist, raised his suspicions over Chongqing's sensational gunshot killing, which happened on March 19, 2009. Jiang says the case was probably a fake performance aimed at building momentum for Bo's anti-vice campaign and for Bo to win over the Chengdu Military Region— which may be why the case had not been solved until now. Rumors claim that Gu Kailai was under investigation while in custody, after Bo was sacked from office. Yang Haipeng's Weibo says, Gu Kailai's graft has been announced to officials above the sub-provincial ranking. Meanwhile, Bo Xilai's son Bo Guagua has not shown up for his course at Harvard University. Even Li Wang, another son of Bo Xilai, together with Bo's ex-wife, are reportedly missing now. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Obama Greets Hu Jintao: Netizens Uproar (Bo Guagua's and Nick Heywood´s incidents)

[© NTDTV] (ChinaForbiddenNews) http://www.youtube.com/user/ChinaForbiddenNews?feature=watch 03/26/2012 Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews On March 26, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) President Hu Jintao attended the Nuclear Safety Summit in Seoul. He met U.S. President Barack Obama in the hotel. This is the 11th meeting between the two. Obama's opening greeting was"how are you at home recently?" This made Mainland Chinese netizens discuss fierily, thinking that the greeting words carry double meanings. They point out the Bo Xilai incident in China. A lot of netizens made a mockery with jokes. Some said: "Obama is really humorous. Brother Hu is very naughty and upset at home. Why he just mentioned the terrible thing?" Some answered for Hu Jintao: "It's not good recently at home." "Zhou Yongkang is not off the shelf." Some said for Obama: "I have a few cards you want." Continued infighting of high-level CCP made the meeting of Hu Jintao and Barack Obama attract strong attention from people in mainland China. On the same day, Chinese netizens are also strongly concerned whether Zhou Yongkang is off the shelf or not. Zhou Yongkang appeared in the so-called "The first training course of National Politics and Law Committee secretary". He said in the speech; "Must keep high accord with CCP Central Committee in cardinal issues." Some commented that this is what Zhou Yongkang shows to appear soft to Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao. Zhou Yongkang's appearance just illustrates that Hu and Wen have controlled the overall situation. Some analysts also said that the appearance of Zhou Yongkang is to create a stable atmosphere for Hu Jintao's visit. After being used, Zhou Yongkang should be off the shelf. In addition, netizen microblog in Mainland China are spreading the incident that Bo Guagua's British butler Nick Heywood died surprisingly last year. It has caused global concern. A microblogging message was issued by "Yang Haipeng in Shanghai", a netizen in mainland China. It is reported to have spread to foreigners, with some mainstream international media breaking the news. The Wall Street Journal quoted the words of an insider that Wang Lijun believes that Heywood was poisoned to death. Cao Guoxing, reporter of "Radio France Internationale", broke the news. It is said that this case is one of the firing lines of the Wang Lijun and Bo Xilai disputes. It also became a key element for Bo Xilai being removed from his position. However, British and U.S. Embassy spokesman declined to comment whether Wang Lijun handed materials to the U.S that revealed the truth during his stay in U.S. Chengdu Consulate. In addition to CCP's palace struggle, there are also some strike movements from Chinese people. On March 26th, workers of Jiugang Port of Huangpu, Guangzhou carried out collective strikes. This was due to wages and social security issues, causing the port to become paralyzed. There was a lot of cargo backlogged, with the barges not being able to set off. It is said that the CCP authorities are urgently dealing with this to prevent strike-proliferation. Huangpu Port is 32 kilometers away from Guangzhou, the third largest export port in recent years. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/ ( Information on my own account: Now it´s only a matter of time until my channel will be shut down again.

China calls for support amid Bo Xilai fall-out

The Communist Party in China has ejected Bo Xilai, the country's brashest and most controversial politician from its top ranks, and police have detained his wife Gu Kailai in connection with the murder of a British businessman Neil Heywood. Neil Heywood, a 41-year-old businessman, was found dead in a Chongqing hotel room in November 2011. According to evidence it was suggested Heywood's death was a homicide. But events took a sinister turn when it was been established that there was a dispute over unspecified "economic interests" between Gu and Heywood that "constantly intensified". The decision to cast out Bo Xilai from the party's Central Committee and its Politburo effectively ends the career of the former high-flyer, widely seen as pressing for a top post in China's next leadership challenge which is to be decided later this year.

Bo Xilai and Wife Implicated in Murder of British Citizen [© NTDTV] (ChinaForbiddenNews)

China nimmt Untersuchungen im Fall Heywood wieder auf

Diesen Dienstag begrüßte der britische Außenminister William Hague die Entscheidung Chinas, im Fall des verstorbenen Geschäftsmanns Neil Heywood die Ermittlungen wieder aufzunehmen. Die Entscheidung dazu fiel gestern, nachdem Gu Kailai, die Frau des abgesetzten Parteikaders Bo Xilai wegen Mordverdachtes an Heywood festgenommen worden war. [William Hague, Britischer Außenminister]: „Ich begrüsse diese Ankündigung der chinesischen Behörden. Ich entschied vor wenigen Wochen China um eine Wiederaufnahme der Untersuchungen im Todesfall Neil Heywood zu bitten. Also freut es mich, dass sie das tun, worum wir baten. Nun erwarten wird die Ergebnisse dieser Untersuchungen zu sehen." Neil Heywood war letzten November tot in einem chinesischen Hotel aufgefunden worden. Die Polizei diagnostizierte Tod durch übermäßigen Alkoholkonsum und äscherte den Leichnam kurz darauf ein. Doch die jüngsten Informationen stellen diese Diagnose in Frage. Der ehemalige Polizeichef von Chongqing, Wang Lijun, bat im Februar um Asyl im US-Konsulat in Chengdu. Es wird vermutet, dass er Beweise hatte, dass Heywood ermordet worden war. Heywood und Gu Kailai sollen wegen ihrer Geschäftsbeziehungen gestritten haben, jedoch ist bisher noch nichts belegt. Chinas Staatsfernsehen CCTV berichtete: „Gu Kailai wurde an die Justizbehörden übergeben, wegen des Verdachts auf vorsätzliche Tötung."

Großbritannien: China soll Tod eines Briten untersuchen - Zusammenhang mit dem Fall Bo Xilai?

Eine unerwartete Wende im Skandal um den ehemaligen Parteisekretär von Chongqing, Bo Xilai. Die britische Regierung verlangt von Chinas Autoritäten, den Tod des britischen Geschäftsmannes Neil Heywood zu untersuchen. Laut Berichten war Heywood entweder ein Freund Bo Xilais oder hatte geschäftliche Verbindungen zu Bo Xilais Familie. Heywood starb im November 2011, die offizielle Todesursache: übermäßiger Alkoholkonsum. Sein Leichnam war eingeäschert worden, was jede weitere Untersuchung unmöglich machte. Laut einem Sprecher des britischen Außenministeriums war dessen Vertretung in Peking durch britische Bürger in China auf „verdächtige Umstände" um Heywoods Tod aufmerksam gemacht worden. [Sprecher des britischen Außenministeriums]: „Vor kurzem haben wir die chinesischen Behörden aufgefordert, den Fall weiter zu untersuchen. Details können wir nicht nennen, da es sich um ein nichtöffentliches Gespräch in einer heiklen konsularischen Angelegenheit handelt." Der genaue Zusammenhang zwischen Heywood und Bo Xilai ist unklar. Das Wall Street Journal zitiert „Menschen, die mit dem Fall vertraut sind", die behaupteten, Heywood habe mit Bos Ehefrau eine geschäftliche Auseinandersetzung gehabt. Aufgrund von chinesischen Blog-Einträgen berichten einige Medien, Heywood hätte für Bo Xilais Sohn, Bo Guagua, als Butler gearbeitet. BBC sagte, das sei nicht wahr, behauptete aber, Heywood sei mit Bo Guagua und Bo Xilai seit Jahren befreundet gewesen. Der Tod von Heywood erregt Aufmerksamkeit. Es soll eine Verbindung zu einem Skandal geben, der zu Bos Sturz führte. Laut Wall Street Journal habe sich der ehemalige Polizeichef von Chongqing, Wang Lijun, mit seinem Boss Bo Xilai verkracht, nachdem er seine Vermutung geäußert hatte, Heywood sei vergiftet worden. Wang Lijun war am 6. Februar zum US-Konsulat in Chengdu geflüchtet und ersuchte um Asyl. Vermutlich hatte er Beweise für Bos Verbrechen vorgelegt. Wang wurde daraufhin von der Zentralbehörde nach Peking gebracht. Die Berichte über Heywoods Tod könnten Auswirkungen haben auf den anhaltenden Machtkampf innerhalb der Kommunistischen Partei Chinas. Bo Xilai und Wang Lijun gehörten zur Fraktion des ehemaligen chinesischen Führers Jiang Zemin. Mit Blick auf den bevorstehenden Führungswechsels Ende des Jahres erhöhen die derzeitigen Führer Hu Jintao und Wen Jiabao den Druck auf Jiangs Fraktion.

Bo Xilai May Face Family Extermination

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews According to a Xinhua News Agency news report on April 10, Bo Xilai was put under investigation (shuanggui) by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. The news said that Bo was suspended from his posts as the Politburo member and as a Central Committee member. Bo's wife, Gu Kailai and his home-service secretary, Zhang Xiaojun, have both been arrested. This is because Gu and Zhang are suspected of murdering British citizen Neil Heywood, according to the official announcement. Critic Zhang Tianliang says that the pre-arranged news reports issued by Xinhua News Agency still leave a cloud of suspicion hanging over the Bo Xilai case. Zhang points out that it was an anomaly that Wang Lijun had bypassed Zhou Yongkang to tell the U.S. consulate about Bo's family being under suspicion of murder. This shows that Zhou Yongkang is a "political interest related party" on this issue. Zhang deduced that Bo and Zhou had plotted rebellion, they both therefore needed large sums of money. Heywood was one of middlemen who helped Bo's family to accumulate wealth. However Heywood might have been unclear about how the money was to be used. Later he might have unintentionally learned something of Bo's plotting treason, so he may have become very afraid. Gu doubted Heywood's loyalty so she poisoned him to death, Zhang figures. Xinhua News Agency said that over several years, Gu Kailai and her son had kept up a good relationship with Neil Heywood. Later some economic interest issues had given rise to conflict among them and that conflict had become serious. Zhang Tianliang thinks that this statement is hardly convincing. An anti-vice campaign in Chongqing would have made it easy for Bo to confiscate hundreds of billions of RMB from private entrepreneurs. For the money collected through Heywood would have been relatively negligible. Zhang thinks that the regime's claim that Bo could have arranged Heywood's murder simply over a personal economic conflict, is unlikely. The official ly touted claim of "economic interests" inevitably conceals major political interests, Zhang believes. Exactly because Zhou Yongkang is in the category of a "related political interest", clearly explains his support for Bo Xilai, says Zhang. Zhang Tianliang notes that based on Xinhua News Agency's news releases, Bo Guagua has not been charged or put under any official investigation. However, his name was specifically mentioned in this news report. So Bo Xilai will surely not face a jail-term, like Chen Liangyu, but something akin to family extermination, Zhang figures. On April 9, a Dwnews.com blogger posted: unnamed sources said that Bo Guagua had left the U.S., and returned to China. In China, Rumors are Prophecies of what lies Far Ahead A few hours before Xinhuanet.com published news about Bo Xilai's ouster from his post as Politburo member, the exact same news had already been released by overseas medias. Many netizens in China quickly reproduced the message in Weibo, although all of them were blocked. The CCP media recently requested people to "fight with the rumors". After the official release, a netizen in China posted: "Rumors in mainland China are just far-ahead prophecies." Another netizen sneered: "What I hate the most is that all of those officially touted rumors and supposedly uninformed people are all actually telling the truth right now." One posting simply said, "Rumors are exactly the truth!" Tsai Yung-Mei, executive editor of Open magazine in Hong Kong commented. The fact that foreign media exposed news ahead of the CCP media proves that there is a falling apart of the system inside the regime. That is why the regime can hardly keep its secrets now, said Tsai Yung-Mei. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/
