China’s investigation of Bo Xilai extends to State Security Ministry spy scandal

Bo Xilai

Hong Kong’s Ming Pao quotes The New York Times that, according to an US official, the recent arrest of a high official in the State Security Ministry for spying for the US was the result of the series of investigations of Bo Xilai’s case. There is no way to confirm whether the spy case is related to other investigations, but there have indeed been some serious activities underway in the Chinese State Security Ministry, and it is hard to predict what will happen next. However, it is very clear that those activities are in the aftermath of the Bo saga.

It was reported that earlier this year quite a few of China’s modern international relations research workers were banned from leaving China. Sources believe the ban is related to the State Security Ministry. According to Reuters, the spy case in the Ministry is perhaps the most serious case of divulging state secrets in the past 20 years. So far, it is not clear what secrets the arrested official divulged to the US, nor whether the secrets have caused China to compromise with the US.

According to, sources in Beijing say that the case of Neil Heywood’s murder by Gu Kailai will be closed this summer before top leaders’ meetings at Beidaihe. Gu will be given a suspended death sentence while Zhang Xiaojun, another person involved in the case, will be given the death penalty. Bo Xilai’s case will be separate from those two people’s case.

Sources say that the Party does not want the case to draw on for too long, or to affect the Party’s 18th Congress scheduled in the latter half of this year. Gu Kailai and Zhang Xiaojun are not the only people involved in the case. There are other officials who assisted in dealing with the aftermaths of the murder. Wan Lijun’s statement in the Central Disciplinary Commission’s investigation plays a vital role in the case as Wang has kept a piece of Neil Heywood’s corpse as evidence.

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 The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that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 US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the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.
