Was fallen Chinese defence minister Wei Fenghe compromised by hostile force?

Wei is the only man to whom the word has been linked in the past ten years, according to a search of statements made by the top civil anti-corruption system, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), and its military equivalent.

A political scholar from Beijing’s Renmin school said the figures” dong jie” are most strongly associated with former Communist Party officials for Xiang Zhongfa or Gu Shunzhang, who defected to the Kuomintang, or Patriots, the Communists ‘ terrible competitors during the civil war.

” Question any party writer, what are the names that pop up in their head when you mention’ shi ding” to them, they will tell you the history of Xiang Zhongfa, who was regarded as a big embarrassment to the group,” said the researcher, who requested anonymity.

Xiang was the only public minister, or head of the party, to fault in its history. Just before his execution, he told his Kuomintang prisoners everything he knew about the group and its key services. This gave them a chance to completely demolish the Socialist underground community in Shanghai.

Gu, who previously headed the group’s spy system, even defected to the KMT after his record.

His defection resulted in the arrest of numerous important Communist figures, and even Zhou Enlai, the country’s future premier, was only briefly able to escape. Gu was frequently referred to as” the most dangerous traitor in the history of the CCP” and frequently used as an example of” shi jie” in official histories or media reports.

Wei’s crimes are likely to go beyond accepting bribes, said Hong Kong defense analyst Liang Guoliang, who made the unusual and harsh accusation.

He even compared it to Li’s declaration, which, despite being extremely stern in tone, claimed only that he had “abandoned his initial aspirations and lost his party principles” – a common line used to criticize those who give or receive bribes.

What exactly happened is undoubtedly top secret, and we wo n’t know what actually happened. However, the term” shi jie” appears to suggest that Wei’s behavior may have helped China’s enemies profit from it, Liang said.
