[NTD News December 02, 2021, Beijing time]The arrest of Macau’s little gambling king Zhou Zhuohua continues to ferment. People familiar with the matter revealed that the operation was conducted by Wang Xiaohong, the new party secretary of the Ministry of Public Security of the Communist Party of China. It is expected that the authorities’ cleansing storm within the police is about to come.

Wang Xiaohong catches the “little gambling king”

Zhou Zhuohua, founder of Macau Suncity Group, was imprisoned in Macau Coloane Prison on November 29. Macau police reported that the 11 persons arrested including Zhou Zhuohua admitted to cross-border gambling crimes but refused to cooperate with other investigations. The follow-up development of the case has attracted the attention of the outside world.

Hong Kong Sing Tao reported that the arrest of Zhou Zhuohua was carried out by the Wenzhou Public Security Bureau, but it was clearly planned by the Central Political and Legal Committee, and the Macau police actively cooperated in the action.

Yuan Hongbing, a well-known jurist in Australia, told The Epoch Times that the Sixth Plenary Session was the beginning of a more intense struggle within the Communist Party of China, and the capture of the Macau small gambling king was a landmark event.

Yuan Hongbing said that according to his friends in the CCP system in Macau, this little gambler was the white glove of former CCP vice-chairmen Zeng Qinghong and Meng Jianzhu. Under the direct supervision of Xi Jinping’s close associate Wang Xiaohong, the little gambling king was quickly arrested.

Wang Xiaohong was promoted to Secretary of the Party Committee of the Ministry of Public Security on November 19, and he has now given orders to the entire public security system.

Wang Xiaohong asks to “play hard and cruel hands” against cross-border gambling

Zhou Zhuohua’s accident had a foretaste. In 2019, the party media “Economic Information Daily” named the “Sun City Internet Gambling Platform” controlled by Zhou Zhuohua, which involved cross-border gambling and money laundering, which led to the outflow of more than trillions of funds in China.

Zhou Zhuohua then held a press conference to deny the accusations made by the state media.

In February 2020, the Ministry of Public Security of the Communist Party of China formally deployed the crackdown on cross-border gambling crimes, and Wang Xiaohong was in charge.

In March of this year, the authorities revised the Criminal Law and added “the crime of organizing participation in gambling outside of the country”.

On April 30, Wang Xiaohong, in a video conference on cracking down on cross-border gambling, requested that cross-border gambling groups be “struck hard and cruel”, and the “funding masters” behind the group involved in the case were fully investigated.

On May 26, Wang Xiaohong met with Macau Attorney General Ye Xunsheng in Beijing and pointed out that the two places should deepen cooperation in combating cross-border gambling crimes and anti-money laundering.

On November 19, Wang Xiaohong was promoted to secretary of the Party Committee of the Ministry of Public Security, and Zhou Zhuohua was taken a week later.

Party media “People’s Daily” published an exclusive interview with Professor Qu Xinjiu of China University of Political Science and Law on November 29. According to his analysis, Zhou Zhuohua’s arrest by Wenzhou procuratorial organs highlights the CCP government’s “zero tolerance” attitude towards cross-border gambling crimes and “draws a red line” for overseas gambling groups.

On November 30, the Supreme Procuratorate of the Communist Party of China held a press conference on “Severely Punish the Crime of Opening Casinos”, stating that the Supreme Procurator attaches great importance to cracking down on cross-border gambling.

Meng Jianzhu used to be the platform for the little gambling king, the Ministry of Public Security is facing a cleaning storm

According to the Wenzhou police report, Zhou Zhuohua has been conducting cross-border gambling business in China since 2007. As of July 2020, Zhou Zhuohua’s cross-border gambling crime syndicate has 199 shareholder-level agents, more than 12,000 gambling agents, and more than 80,000 gambler members in China. The amount involved is particularly huge.

It is worth mentioning that over the past ten years, Zhou Zhuohua has not only expanded his cross-border gambling business, but also has become more closely related to the Ministry of Public Security and the political and legal system of the Communist Party of China. His Suncity Group has worked with the Ministry of Public Security of the Communist Party of China and the military to film many so-called “main theme” movies such as “Operation Mekong” and “Operation Red Sea”. Former Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee of the Central Committee Meng Jianzhu used to be Zhou Zhuohua’s platform.

The website of the Ministry of Public Security of the Communist Party of China reported on November 2, 2016 that on November 1, the then Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee of the Central Committee Meng Jianzhu had a discussion with the creators of the film “Operation Mekong” in Beijing. Meng Jianzhu admired the film greatly.

Guo Shengkun, then Minister of Public Security of the Communist Party of China, Fu Zhenghua, then Deputy Minister of Public Security, and Sun Lijun, member of the Party Committee of the Ministry of Public Security, also attended the forum. Sun Lijun and Fu Zhenghua have now been investigated.

What’s interesting is that “Operation Mekong” is a movie that reflects the CCP police’s anti-drug campaign. But the UN Office on Drugs and Crime Representative in Southeast Asia and the Pacific, Jeremy Douglas (Jeremy Douglas) said that Zhou Zhuohua’s Suncity Group has been associated with drug smuggling and money laundering for many years.

“Zhou Zhuohua’s arrest will undoubtedly not only shock Hong Kong and Macau, but will also shock organized criminal groups in Cambodia, Laos and the Philippines.” Dagras said.

Epoch Times commentator Yue Shan said that Zhou Zhuohua’s arrest this time and his VIP client list might lead to a large number of problematic officials. At the same time, the “protective umbrella” behind him is bound to be hit.

At an important meeting recently, Wang Xiaohong, secretary of the Party Committee of the Ministry of Public Security of the Communist Party of China, reiterated the elimination of Fu Zhenghua and Sun Lijun’s drug abuse, and warned to “keep an eye on problematic people and things”, which seemed to herald the approaching storm of cleansing by the Ministry of Public Security.
