CCDI Started “Skynet 2017”

The Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) started its “Skynet 2017” operations on March 7. “Skynet” is a campaign to bring corrupt officials who hide overseas back to China. CCDI carries out this operation every year.

The CCDI website explained that this year’s operation focuses on three things: money, ID, and people.

“The majority of criminal suspects tried to transfer money overseas before they left China. The campaign targets off-shore companies and underground banks to block the channels used for getting stolen money out of China.

“’Skynet 2017’ closely watches people’s IDs. As part of its routine work, it includes oversight of illegally obtained passports and IDs and the government officials’ private passports.

“It closely monitors people. It will strengthen the monitoring of key corruption suspects and people who can provide valuable tips so that a slight leak of information will prevent the suspect from escaping.”

Is China’s Civil Law Creating Literacy Persecution?

The “Hero and Martyr Protection Article” in the General Provision of Civil Law that the Fifth Plenary Session of the 12th National People’s Congress recently passed has generated a lot of scrutiny.

The original draft did not contain that article. During the Plenum, Article 185 was added as, “Those who infringe on the names, portraits, reputations, and honor of heroes and martyrs and damage the public interest should bear civil liability.”

Many people have ridiculed this law: It is very difficult to define “heroes and martyrs” legally. In certain periods, the “heroes and martyrs” that the Communist Party promoted were indeed fake. When people tried to go back to the real truth in history, their comments were treated as malicious slander.

“Those of a certain age can still remember that whoever said something negative about Mao Zedong during the Cultural Revolution would be imprisoned or killed. Now China has ‘improved.’ Whoever criticizes Mao Zedong or other of the Communist Regime’s ‘heroes’ and ‘martyrs’ will not be killed. Instead, the Public Security Bureau and the procuratorate may use a civil lawsuit to destroy his family financially.”

It is called, “to use the Civil Law to create literacy persecution (imprison the author who writes something against the regime’s will).”

Guo Wengui: “I Feel That the Live Organ Harvesting Truly Exists”

In his interview with Mingjing (see Chinascope’s briefing Interview with Guo Wengui)Guo Wengui mentioned Falun Gong and live organ harvesting. Afterwards, he felt that he didn’t make his point clear on this issue, so he took another interview with the Epoch Times and New Tang Dynasty TV to clarify.

According to Guo, Li You (李友), the CEO of the Founders Group (北大方正集团), built the Peking University International Hospital in 2014. It is the largest among all first-class hospitals in China. Li wanted to use it as a connection building vehicle to serve the old officials and also do organ transplants.

Li felt that it is very profitable to do organ transplants in China. There are a lot of people in China. The laws in China are not sufficient enough to regulate organ transplants. Also Li had the connections (via corruption) that would help him to do this business.

Before Li could start his organ transplant business, he was diagnosed with liver cancer. Li received a few dozen offers of livers (candidates for live organ harvesting), but Li was arrested before he could have the operation.

“I was very surprised. Falun Gong practitioners have been talking about (how the Communist regime has conducted) live organ harvesting (of Falun Gong practitioners’ organs). This really happened. It was really true. I heard it from a person whose family member works in the Public Security system. I was told that people in the Public Security system offered most of the liver sources [to Li You]. I came to the realization why it was from Falun Gong practitioners. It was because the Public Security offices are the ones who detained them. From this case, I feel that the live organ harvesting truly exists.”

Reporter: “What do you use as the basis to conclude that the liver sources offered to Li You were from Falun Gong practitioners?”

Guo Wengui, “It was not my suspicion. Those people heard them saying that some were from Falun Gong practitioners. They told me that.”

Interview with Guo Wengui

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.

China Successfully Tested the Wing Loong II

On February 27, 2017, China successfully tested the Wing Loong II Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group (CAIG) developed the Wing Loong II. It is China’s first reconnaissance and attack integrated UAV.

The Wing Loong II is 11 meters long and 4.1 meters tall with a wing span of 20.5 meters. It can reach a top speed of 370 km per hour and service ceiling of 9,000 meters. It has an endurance of 20 hours and a payload of 480 kg.

The Wing Loong II’s standard configuration includes synthetic aperture radar, laser guided missiles and GPS guided bombs. It can be used for reconnaissance, monitoring, and air-to-ground attack. It can also be expanded for information collection, electronic warfare, and search and rescue.

Li Yidong, the chief designer of the Wing-Loong platform, claimed, “China has become a country which, after the U.S., has the ability to research and develop the new generation of reconnaissance and strike integrated UAVs.”

He also mentioned that, even before the test flight, China received its biggest UAV foreign order for the Wing Loong II.

China’s Minister of Foreign Affairs: Both North Korea and the U.S. Need to Apply the Brakes

At a press conference held on March 8 for the Fifth Plenary Session of the 12th National People’s Congress, Wan Yi, China’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, answered news reporters’ questions.

A Reuters reporter asked him if China thinks a war will break out on the Korean Peninsula and asked how it could be prevented.

Wan answered, “On the one hand, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), insists on its nuclear missile development. While ignoring international objections and violating the United Nations’ resolution, it recently fired four Ballistic missiles. On the other hand, the U.S. and South Korea held super-large scale military exercises and continually increase their military pressure over the DPRK. This is like two trains that keep accelerating, with no intention of avoiding each other. Are the two sides really ready for a head-on collision? The top priority at this moment is to flash the red lights and apply the brakes.”

Wan said China’s suggestion is that North Korea stops nuclear missile activity and the U.S. and South Korea stop large-scale military exercises, and then both sides come back to the negotiating table.
