On April 20, 2015, Boxun republished a news article from The Trend Magazine in Hong Kong on the current intense anti-corruption campaign in Shanghai, where former top leader Jiang Zemin has been for many years (the original article cannot be found online). Several high ranking political officials and business executives are already under investigations. Wang Qishan, Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), said that they “cannot afford to lose” in the anti-corruption effort and “vowed to break through Shanghai.” The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection is now investigating the Shanghai Politics and Law system.
Many serious corruption cases involved the Shanghai Politics and Law Committee. Most of these cases happened when Wu Zhiming, Jiang Zemin’s nephew, was in charge. Wu was the former Party Secretary of the Shanghai Politics and Law Committee and is the current chairman of the Shanghai Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC). “What Wu Zhiming faces is far from a soft landing as outsiders have speculated.”
