Throw Stern Hu out of China!

Okay, the guy admitted he took a bribe, but what constitutes a bribe in Hu's case?

Stern Hu is not the target, he was white-anted by Wang Yong. BHP Billiton Rio Tinto has shown ineptitude and lackadaisical oversight of its employees and sales operations in China. You will fine major Australian corporations are more into internecine office politics than substance, the cream does not always rise to the top, and sometimes the cream on top is sour cream.

Stern Hu's continuing presence in China is nothing but trouble, it will muddy the water when the court goes after Wang and Du. The court should slap a fine and a jail sentence on Stern Hu but take into consideration time served. Have Stern Hu serve out the remainder of his sentence in Australia.

China should concentrate on Wang's dealings with Du.

Is BHP Rio Complicit in the Bribery?

Going after the Wang - Du connection will possibly prove BHP Billiton Rio Tinto complicit in the bribery, at least gross negligence in management and their operational procedures. This will give CISA a leverage, chance to wag your finger at a global duopoly and a local monopoly created to economically constrain and to squeeze China.

Going after Stern Hu makes it personal, Stern a celebrity and  cast doubt over Chinese legal system.

Is any of this percolating through?

Was this not

a commercial hacking?

Sort of industrial espionage.
Insider dealing, etc.

Stern Hu's informations were used for Rio and BHP's profitline gains.
China should bring these companies to court.

Stern Hu should face the consequence if he breaks the law. It's nothing personal. Justice should be dispensed. There should not be a double standard, i.e one set for the local and another one for the foreigners.

If he is guilty, then slapping with fine is not enough for crime involving  corruption  and industrial espionage.  
Cestmoi  pleaded  leniency to Stern Hu a number of times  - just wondering how he is related to Stern Hu.

So what are YOU after?

Are you after Stern HU regardless of the objective or are you sharing a common objective with CISA and China?

And why must someone be related to another to pursue a verdict commensurate with the natural course of justice?

kche99's motives?

The only reason why kche99 would want to deflect attention onto Stern HU is to steer it away from the Wang - Du Hong Kong arrangement behind the back of CISA and the Chinese people.

I suggest CISA and the police contact BBS to investigate this kche99, very suspicious act against the interest of China and the Chinese people.

We do expect the verdict on Monday and I dare to predict it will be a fair verdict and the punishment wont be too harsh. Anyone has a different opinion?
