Lately, a university student had filed a document to government for disclosing the salary of a high-ranking official.

However, the local government refused.

Then, Could citizens have rights to know the salary of a high-ranking official?

I think citizens should have the right to know the salaries of all officials paid out of the public purse.

The gov official had smiled at the spot where many poor Chinese died in a coach colliding accident. The smile angered a large amount of netizens.

Netizens began to search related information of that official. That official wore many luxurious watches in many pics. Later, the official replied that his salary is more than 170,000 yuan (US $26,962) a year. Yu Zhengsheng, the number 1 guy in Shanghai gov, said his monthly salary was only more than 6,000 a month last year.

How can a gov official far below the rank of Yu Zhengsheng got such huge a mount of salary? Many netizens raised such questions. A college student filed a document to local gov for disclosing the salary of that official. The local gov first sacked that official and later refused to disclose that official's salary.

With the help of a group lawyers, the college student plans to refile the document to local gov for disclosing the salary of that high-ranking official, though the official was sacked.

Mr "smile" is noly one of the many ministry level leaders who have unexplained properties, he was just too arrogant.
Cann't he keep in low profile?
How can he smile with his wrist wearing such an expensive watch in that tragic scene?

Making public his salaries is of little meaning, even if his salaries are opened, few of us will believe in the results, it is just a kind of formality.

Everyone knows that he can not afford those luxurious watch which he had.

Calling for a austerity life among party members is just a slogan, what a shame!!

Tax paying citizens should have the right to know how their money is being used !

It is indeed very practical that the party is  judge, legislator, head of the army, executor  and  publisher  all in one in China.
