Jiang Zemin’s Son Jiang Mianheng Demoted at ShanghaiTech University

On June 5, ShanghaiTech University’s website posted a message stating that Jiang Mianheng, son of the former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Jiang Zemin, has been demoted. He stepped down from the position of President of the university and has now been appointed to the position of Dean of the university’s Administrative Committee. Feng Donglai, an Academic from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, has taken over as the new President.

{Editor’s Note: Jiang Mianheng is 73 years old. This demotion would be less controversial if he had simply retired from the position of President. Giving him a lower position at the same university after his stepping down from being president is fairly humiliating, however.}

Mianheng’s father Jiang Zemin held the top position as leader of the CCP for over a decade (until 2002). He died in November 2022. He was called the “Grand Master of Corruption in the CCP.” Jiang Zhicheng, Jiang Mianheng’s son who was born in 1986, manages the Jiang family’s assets of over 1 trillion yuan (US$140 billion) and is viewed as one of the world’s top hidden tycoon. There have been widespread rumors that Xi Jinping wants to single out the Jiang family as the biggest culprit spreading corruption in China.
