The case of Sun Lijun, a former vice-minister of the Ministry of Public Security of the Communist Party of China, has revealed a large-scale involvement deep inside the Party.
The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) film mentioned that Sun Lijun received hundreds of millions of dollars in property, including vast amounts of cash, expensive watches, gold and silver jewelry, vintage Maotai liquor, high-end cell phones, expensive tea, and other kinds of property.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officially disclosed on Jan. 15, 2022, that Sun Lijun’s “political gang” members were Wang Like, former secretary of the Jiangsu Provincial Political and Legal Committee; Deng Guolin, former director of Chongqing Public Security Bureau; Liu Xinyun, former director of the Shanxi Provincial Public Security Bureau; Gong Daogan, former director of the Shanghai Public Security Bureau, and other officials.
The Hong Kong newspaper Ming Pao reported on Nov. 2 last year that Zeng Xin and Sun Lijun, Gong Doan, and Deng Guolin have had many encounters in the past.
In September 2021, the CCP officially reported that Sun Lijun was accused of “deliberately discussing the central government, engaging in gangsterism, gang affiliation, and cultivating personal power; forming gangs to control key departments; and leaving his post at the front line of the epidemic without permission; and privately hiding and releasing a large number of confidential materials.”
Sun Lijun was one of the officials who supervised the CCP Central Committee’s fight against the epidemic in Wuhan. According to Radio Free Asia, Chen Yixin, General Secretary of The Central Political and Legal Committee, convened a meeting to administer the worst outbreak in Wuhan in February 2020. Unfortunately, Sun’s phone and his secretary’s cell phone were off and out of reach when they attempted contact.
According to the article, one of Sun Lijun’s crimes, which was made public by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), is that he “hid and kept a large number of classified materials,” about the Wuhan epidemic, which the CCP authorities would never dare to disclose publicly.
Another to fall is Zeng Xin, a crony of Sun Lijun
The article mentions that in September 2011, Zeng Xin was promoted to the head of the 12th Bureau of the CCP’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS). Without Sun Lijun advancing him, Zeng Xin had no chance of promotion to the full bureau. Then only one year after his promotion to the Bureau, Zeng Xin moved up another level to become the director and party secretary of the Hubei Provincial Public Security Bureau.
After the fall of Sun Lijun, at the end of November of the same year, Zeng Xin (55 years old), who had not reached retirement age, was removed from his position as a member of the Standing Committee of the Regional Party Committee and Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee. At the end of December, Zeng Xin resigned as a deputy to the National People’s Congress for “personal reasons.”
Next to fall is Meng Jianzhu
Meng Jianzhu was the former Minister of Public Security of the Communist Party of China and the former Secretary of the Central Committee of Political and Legal Affairs.
Sun Lijun, who was transferred directly from Shanghai to the Ministry of Public Security by Meng Jianzhu, was still serving as Meng’s “chief secretary” as deputy director of the General Office of the Ministry of Public Security.
According to current political commentator Yue Shan, backing up Meng Jianzhu are a group of senior political and legal officials. Meng is a significant member of the Jiang faction and former secretary of the Communist Party’s Political and Legal Committee.
More higher-ranking officials are exposed to the public as Sun Lijun’case has reached higher and further to the top rank inside the CCP.
