Chinese film studio joins hunt for fugitives

(Xinhua)   08:45,   April 01, 2012


HANGZHOU, March 31 (Xinhua) -- The Hengdian World Studio in east China's Zhejiang province recently carried out a campaign to confirm the identities of its film extras in order to ferret out fugitives who may be hiding within their ranks, local authorities said Saturday.

In March, the studio required more than 6,000 actors to apply for actor's certificates at a local police station, with police officers visiting film sets to verify the identities of the actors, according to the Hengdian police department.

The Hengdian World Studio, referred to by some as "China's Hollywood," is known for its high concentration of actors from all over the country. Several fugitives-turned-actors have been nabbed at the studio in recent years.

The most recent cases involved a fugitive suspected in an attack on a police officer 13 years ago in northeast China's Heilongjiang province, as well as another fugitive accused of embezzlement in central China's Hubei province. Both suspects were arrested last December.

By the same token, if Aids is wide spread, why is it then, still referred to as Aids?

Cash flight toughens anti-corruption fight
Global Times | April 12, 2012 01:10

By Li Xiang

Anti-corruption work has been getting more difficult in recent years, as some officials are channeling their dirty gains overseas, according to an article in the People's Daily Wednesday.

The article points out that some officials are choosing overseas countries, in order to bypass supervision from China. Some are resorting to secretively wiring their illegal income overseas and some have secretly obtained foreign nationalities or dual citizenship.

"Some corrupt individuals instruct their spouses, children, mistresses, friends or even relatives to receive bribes on their behalf, or receive remarkable personal bonuses for facilitating third-party business activities," said the article.


Since the mid-90s, between 16,000 and 18,000 government and judiciary officials as well as high-ranking State-owned enterprises executives have defected overseas, carrying some 800 billion yuan ($126.83 billion) with them, according to research by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) in June last year.

Debates over how to contain defecting and so-called "naked officials," whose spouses and children have relocated to foreign countries, have featured prominently in recent years.

Zhu Lijia, a professor of public management at the Chinese Academy of Governance, applauded the determination to step up anti-corruption efforts, but said some measures needed to be improved.

"Loopholes still widely exist in regulations, such as the opaqueness in the official's property declaration system," Zhu said.

"Some officials have been asked to report their property to the discipline inspection and organization departments, but this has not been made public," Mao Shoulong, a professor with the School of Public Administration at Renmin University of China, told the Global Times.

China has so far signed extradition treaties with some 30 nations, but only a few developed nations such as France and Australia are among them.

"Extradition is rarely seen being applied to officials having defected," Zhu said. "These treaties are based on the two nations' mutual trust and each other's judicial system."

Experts said difference in judicial systems, such as China's death penalty, is one of the reason for the lack of extradition agreements.

"There are also some precedents for extradition, but it is pretty difficult to process and the costs are high," Mao Shoulong said.

Corruption can never be eliminated in anywhere in the world. Just face the hard facts and get on with life of building better quality life for middle class and poor chinese people.

US, UK, EU countries, Japan Taiwan, India, etc. are some of the most corrupted countries in the world, whether done by their leaders or businessmen, according to a Singapore based fund manager, from US. They are even more corrupted than Chinese leaders, if you measure in terms of the amount of taxpayers money they have taken illegally.

It is also very wrong to use corruption charges to get rid of your enemies.

China have plenty of thousands of very smart, savvy and talented people all over the country, but most of them concentrated in Zhejiang, Ningbo, Shanghai, Shangdong, Jiangsu and Suzhou. Most of this smart are just ordinary people without much connection.

China leaders only need to IDENTIFY these very smart ordinary people, and give them the funding and capital to turn their ideas into productive and innovative consumer goods. The gains from these smart people will outweigh all the taxpayers money being drained away or lost through corruption.

Corruption is not a serious problems in China. The most serious problems facing Beijing leaders is lack of initiative or enthusiasm in identifying the capable and talented not well connected ordinary chinese and help them turn their ideas and knowledge into innovative consumer products.  Jack Ma is an example of a talented and ordinary chinese which China leaders should give him the money to build a few supercomputer data center to rival Facebook or Google in search engine.

Is China leaders up to this challenge ?

Premier Wen vows greater anti-corruption resolve

Updated: 2012-04-15 16:37(Xinhua)

Commentary: CPC shows no tolerance forcorruption

(Xinhua) 08:30, April 20, 2012
BEIJING, April 19 (Xinhua) -- Vowing thorough investigations into the Wang Lijun incident, the death of Briton Neil Heywood and **'s serious violations, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has shown its dedication to the fight
against corruption.

The Party's unequivocal and consistent opposition to corruption and the steady,notable new progress made in fighting corruption and upholding integrity provide an important guarantee for advancing reform, opening up, and socialist modernization.

However, it's a fact that the country's anti-graft fight is still very challenging, and for avery long time, achievements will be accompanied by problems, just as increasing crackdown efforts and higher public expectations will meet with frequent and die-hard corrupt phenomena.


The country's anti-corruption drive is set to be a long-term, complicated and arduous one. It is not surprising that the CPC, with more than 80 million members, have some black sheep. The important thing is that the
Party is fully aware of the grave situation and has been resorting to forceful measures to improve the institutions for punishing and preventing corruption.


Corruption is a common enemy for all, especially for a country that is undergoing social and economic transformations. If the issue is left unattended, a country may implode, its ruling power will   collapse, and its society left in chaos.


In this war of triumph or downfall, the CPC has chosen its stance from the very start.


After its founding in the 1920s, the CPC issued its first document on fighting corrupt members within the Party. And then there was the three-year Rectification Movement in the 1940s and numerous campaigns after the founding of the New China in 1949 that aimed to curb graft, extravagance and bureaucracy.


Following the Wang Lijun incident, the death of Neil Heywood and **'s discipline violations, the CPC is expected to further heighten officials' awareness of self-discipline and integrity, and develop intra-Party democracy.


It should improve the mechanism to effectively spot corrupt behaviors, such as strengthening a declaration system for officials' assets and major personal issues,adopting more measures
to protect and
reward whistleblowers, and enhance inspection and supervision.


While maintaining a high-profile crackdown coupled with harsh punishment, the Party should also explore more scientific and innovative methods to supervise and restrict officials' power, and thus, address both the symptoms and root causes.

It should be noted that such supervision and restriction of power should be realized through joint efforts from the Party, the National People's Congress, government,political consultative bodies, non-CPC parties, judicial organs, the media and the people.

Only by doing so, can CPC ensure the operations of power in full transparency.
