Hu Jintao Continues Clean Up of Bo Xilai’s Close Followers

The Epoch Times reported that the disciplinary authorities seized Fang Binxing, the Dean of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT). Fang is a close follower of Bo Xilai and Zhou Yongkang, and is known as "the father of China’s Great Firewall." It is widely rumored in the media that Bo bribed Fang with "money and women." In return, Fang helped Bo and Zhou to wiretap the secret conversations of China’s top government leaders.

On December 4, 2011, Fang hosted a ceremony in which he welcomed Wang Lijun to BUPT as an honorary professor. Fang praised Wang highly as being not only an "Iron Blood Police Spirit" and a "mighty strong man," but also a "gentle and cultivated professor." He said, "Wang’s addition to BUPT is a source that will, like a spring, bring forth motivation for the development of humanism." Following Wang Lijun’s escape and Bo Xilai’s ouster, Fang destroyed the documents that related to his relations with Wang and Bo.
