Guo Wengui (郭文贵) is a business tycoon from China. He is the founder of Zenith Holdings Co., Ltd. (政泉控股). Guo got into a fierce financial battle with Li You (李友), the CEO of the Founders Group (北大方正集团), eventually resulting in Li being arrested and sentenced, while Guo himself escaped to the U.S.
Guo and Li used to be business partners. Both of them have strong connections with many high-ranking officials. Li was connected to Ling Jihua (令计划), one of the major tigers taken down during Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign. Guo was linked to Ma Jian (马建), Deputy Minister of State Security, who was also taken down for corruption. Guo is believed to have more connections to even higher officials.
Wang Qishan wants to bring Guo back to China.
Guo Wengui recently took an interview with an overseas Chinese media Mingjing. In the interview, he talked about some officials being corrupt and even provided evidence. The interview was published on YouTube, but since has been taken out.
During the interview, Guo said that, earlier this year, Xi Jinping ordered an investigation into Fu Zhenghua (傅政华) after Guo exposed Fu’s corruption. Fu is the Deputy Minister of Public Security.
Guo said that the Vice President Li Yuanchao (李源潮) was in trouble.
Guo also exposed Wu Zheng (吴征) as a very high-ranking spy in the Communist regime. Wu founded the Sunshine Media Investment Group (阳光媒体投资集团), the largest private media in China. He established Sun TV in Hong Kong in 2000 but later sold it due to big financial losses. Guo said that the intelligence group recruited Wu when he was young. Wu works for the Ministry of State Security, the Ministry of Public Security, and the Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
