Consulates in Guangzhou held a charity sale in Dec 12, 2012, to help the Chinese disabled children. However, it was found that someone, taking advantage of foreign organ’s unfamiliarity with Chinese money, used counterfeit notes worth of 5,000 Yuan to buy the charity pledges and donated gifts.

Now, a hot debate on how to view this incident happened among a high-level China's official, Foreign diplomatic officials, and ordinary Chinese.

The idea of a high-level official in China's Central gov

He Keng, who is an economic team leader in China's National congress,  also the former vice minister of National Bureau of Statistics

Foreign embassies aimed to humiliate Chinese. Are Chinese short of that 330,000 yuan? What's more, those 330,000 yuan is origninally China's money. Shame on those guys who do this so called "Charity Sale".

Poor people also have dignity. China's gov spent a large amount of money in helping disabaled people. If foreign people wanna do charity, Please go back to their home country, it would be a real charity. Charity sales in China must be fake. Chinese have Charity sales and performances too. I don't oppose Chinese own charities, though having real one and fake one, we Chinese could solve in a closed door.

Following explanations from China's newspapers after He Keng's remarks
The charity sale was held by Guangzhou local gov. All of Charity sale would help local disabled children in Guangzhou.

An official from Chile Consulate:
We felt sad. We sold at a very low price for charity. We sold 500 yuan (market price) red wines at only 100 yuan, however, many purchasers still distrusted us.

Responding to He Keng's remarks from Belgium's Consulate:
This activity was held by Guangzhou local gov. All of products were donated by Belgium's companies. The charity sale price is only raw price. All of income from charity sale was donated. Where is the shame from? All of my colleauges worked overtime for charity in Saturday. The real shame came from the fake 5000 yuan.

Responding to China's netizens' criticism, from He Keng, the high-level official and also National Congress team leader, to CCTV journalists' questions:

What's the incentive of your remarks?
I don't want some foreigners to shame Chinese.

Many ordinary Chinese criticize you, do you regret?
No regret, or I would read only the positive, not the negative.

Do you feel angry?
No, I could rethink if I said sth wrong. Many China's dirty gangs used to criticize, I don't need to go into rage.

What do you want to say more to China's netizens?
I have rights to express my opinions.
