There was no warning before the arrest of transferring large assets abroad
Yang Yiwen became the eighth secretary of the Hunan Municipal Party Committee to be investigated since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. Before him, Zhang Wenxiong, former member of the Hunan Provincial Party Committee and former secretary of the Hengyang Municipal Party Committee, Li Yilong, former secretary of the Hengyang Municipal Party Committee, and Tong Mingqian, former secretary of the Hengyang Municipal Party Committee, were investigated. Chen Sanxin, former secretary of Xiangtan Municipal Party Committee, Ma Yong, former secretary of Yiyang Municipal Party Committee, Liu Hesheng, former secretary of Yueyang Municipal Party Committee, and Gong Wusheng, former secretary of Loudi Municipal Party Committee. The closest to Yang Yiwen is his old partner Li Jianguo, former secretary of the Loudi Municipal Party Committee, or Yang Yiwen’s predecessor. In 2016, Li Jianguo was promoted from the mayor of Loudi to the secretary of the municipal party committee, and Yang Yiwen was transferred from the secretary of the Changsha county party committee to the mayor of Loudi.
Yang Yiwen was also the first municipal party secretary in Hunan to be investigated since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. As the incumbent secretary of the municipal party committee, Yang Yiwen’s fall was sudden. Among the 14 prefectures, cities and prefectures in Hunan, Changde is a major city. On April 2 this year, Yang Yiwen was transferred from the mayor of Loudi, Hunan to the secretary of the Changde Municipal Party Committee.
“When I saw him not long ago, he was still very satisfied.” Lin Zhengqing, who knows Hunan’s political situation, told reporters.
Changde local media reported that on the morning of November 14th, Changde Municipal Party Committee Secretary Yang Yiwen presided over the (enlarged) meeting of the Municipal Party Committee Standing Committee.
On the morning of the 15th, Yang Yiwen, who had just presided over a meeting, was invited by the case-handling personnel of the Hunan Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection from the 9th floor of the Changde Municipal Party Committee Office Building to the first floor and brought into a temporary conversation room. About half an hour later, Yang Yiwen was taken away by two case handlers. There were a lot of viewers, and various details describing his unbearable performance were circulated.
At almost the same time, Li Xiangjiang was also taken away from the office. Lin Zhengqing analyzed that Yang Yiwen fell suddenly. In accordance with the usual actions, the disciplinary inspection and supervision organs will be very cautious in the review and investigation of local officials such as the secretary of the municipal and prefectural committee.
In fact, less than a month ago, Yang Yiwen also made an appearance in several Hunan provincial-level media reports about the change of Changde in a clean and upright manner. Yang Yiwen was under surprise control without warning, and other sudden factors could not rule out other sudden factors that caused the high-level anger, so he quickly returned to the case. Otherwise, they will generally not choose to be held at the upcoming Hunan Provincial Party Congress (the 12th Hunan Provincial Party Congress will be held in Changsha from November 25 to 28). The secretary of the municipal party committee acted decisively.
The version spread out in the public is that Yang Yiwen anticipated that something was going to happen and began to transfer large assets abroad. In order to avoid the loss of state-owned assets, the discipline inspection and supervision organs took decisive action against him.
Formed by Li Xiangjiang and Yang Gongzi““Mother-child files” Liying and Foreign Cooperation Transfer Assets Abroad
“Yang Yiwen and Li Xiangjiang were proud of the officialdom, and they were good at dancing with long sleeves, but they had a son who made their parents’unconscious’.” An insider close to Yang Yiwen’s family revealed that this young master Yang had been domineering and drugged since he was young. Sent to the United States to study. Entry and exit are under the jurisdiction of the public security. Li Xiangjiang and Yang Gongzi form a “mother-son file”, and inside and outside the country cooperated in handling many activities to transfer assets abroad.
Lin Zhengqing’s description is, “I don’t want him to be outside for a day.” Judging from some details, Yang Yiwen may not be unconscious. An official in Changde told a reporter from China Economic Weekly that Yang Yiwen was not caring about work. Before the accident, he basically ran in Changsha on weekends.
Another media source revealed that when Yang Yiwen introduced his work in August, he couldn’t even answer some major economic data of Changde. For a city party secretary, this is not normal. Several former subordinates revealed that Yang Yiwen’s corruption trajectory Yang Yiwen’s fall was without warning. Pulling out the radish to bring out the mud, at first seemed to have nothing to do with Yang Yiwen.
Yang Yiwen was born as a policeman and is known as a competent official in Hunan’s officialdom, especially when he was in charge of Changsha County, the largest county in Hunan. The accident was caused by some problems in Changsha County. From October 2007 to March 2016, Yang Yiwen was in charge of Changsha County for eight and a half years. He successively served as the head of the county, secretary of the county party committee, and concurrently as the director of the Changsha Economic and Technological Development Zone Management Committee and secretary of the Party Working Committee.
Public reports show that Changsha County ranks among the top 100 counties in the country’s county economy and basic competitiveness, from 65th in 2004 to 13th in 2013, and to 7th in 2016.
As the chief official of Changsha County at that time, Yang Yiwen’s ability was reflected, but there were constant rumors about his “courage”, “engagement in power and money trading,” and “bringing up mistresses”. An official from Changsha County told a reporter from China Economic Weekly that in the field of land, “Yang Yiwen has tried his best, and several projects are suspected of illegal operations.”
Lin Zhengqing said that in Changsha County, it is normal for a project of hundreds of millions to hundreds of millions of dollars to be divided into 5 to 7 points.
On October 22 this year, Fan Xinguo, vice chairman of the Changsha County CPPCC, was investigated for serious violations of discipline and law. Also investigated with Fan Xinguo was Zhu Hongliang, director of the Changsha County Real Estate Trading Center. It is worth mentioning that although Changsha County is under the jurisdiction of Changsha City, Hunan Province, the two persons mentioned above were appointed by the Hunan Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision by the Loudi Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection to conduct disciplinary review and supervision and investigation. The investigation and handling in different places, and the investigation and handling beyond the specifications, shows that the problems involved are more complicated.
The public resume shows that from February 2009 to March 2019, Fan Xinguo successively served as deputy secretary, party secretary, and director of the Changsha County Land and Resources Bureau. Zhu Hongliang served as the director of the Changsha County Land and Resources Trading Center from August 2012 to April 2015.
Lin Zhengqing told China Economic Weekly that one of the clues that Yang Yiwen was investigated was that Zhou, the general manager of a state-owned enterprise in Hunan, illegally loaned out corporate qualifications, and Zhou’s younger brother matched it, and Hunan called it a “basket.” After his brother was investigated, his brother-in-law Pi was brought out. “Brothers of Zha Zhou have nothing to do with Yang Yiwen. But Pi has some economic relationship with Yang Yiwen. In August, after Pi was controlled, Yang Yiwen was exposed. In fact, he was shot while lying down.”
Pi’s company is involved in hotel management, construction of environmentally friendly wooden houses and villas, development of agricultural and sideline products, and development of tourism and cultural products. In March 2016, Yang Yiwen was promoted to Deputy Secretary of the Loudi Municipal Party Committee and Mayor. For the new mayor Yang Yiwen, the cadres and masses of Loudi were full of expectations at first, but they were soon replaced by disappointment. In the words of a local bureau chief: I thought there was someone who grabbed development, but in the end, someone who grabbed votes came.
A Loudi native said that when Li Jianguo, the former secretary of the Municipal Party Committee, was in Loudi, Yang Yiwen could not be the master of some things; some were tacitly divided by the two sides, and each made its own money. For example, in the “white to black” project of Loudi urban roads, both of them intervened. The reconstruction of the traffic signal facilities in Loudi urban area, amounting to more than 40 million yuan, was arranged to the boss appointed by Yang Yiwen without bidding.
On August 28, 2021, three officials from Loudi were investigated together. The Hunan Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection announced: Liu Mingqing, a senior police chief of the Loudi Municipal Public Security Bureau, accepts disciplinary review and supervision and investigation by the Changsha Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection. Like Fan Xinguo and Zhu Hongliang in Changsha County, he also enjoys the “treatment” of investigating and prosecuting in different places. During Yang Yiwen’s tenure in Loudi, Liu Mingqing was promoted from the deputy head of Louxing District of Loudi City and Director of the Louxing Branch of the Municipal Public Security Bureau to Member of the Party Committee and Deputy Director of the Loudi Public Security Bureau. Also investigated on the same day was Zhang Lulin, the former deputy director of the Standing Committee of the People’s Congress of Xinhua County, Loudi City. It was also the Supervisory Committee of the Discipline Inspection Commission of Changsha City who took him away. From November 2016 to February 2021, Zhang Lulin served as a member and deputy director of the Party Group of the Standing Committee of the Xinhua County People’s Congress.
“Brother and sister”Outside, more“Husband and wife” Wife indulges her husband to adopt a mistress
In April of this year, Yang Yiwen was transferred to the secretary of the Changde Municipal Party Committee. In March of this year, Yang Wenli, the younger sister of Yang Yiwen, retired from the post of Director of the Human Resources Department of Changsha Radio and Television Station. She was just 50 years old. The Changsha radio and television system is rumored that Yang Wenli has acted as a broker for Yang Yiwen for a long time, “carrying baskets” outside to make money.
In Lin Zhengqing’s view, Yang Wenli retired early because he saw Yang Yiwen become the secretary of the Changde Municipal Party Committee, ready to do a big job, “professional basket”. Media reports show that Yang Yiwen and Li Xiangjiang are university classmates, and both entered the Changsha City Public Security System after graduation.
After joining the work in 1987, Yang Yiwen has grown from a grassroots policeman to a full-time researcher in the Comprehensive Investigation Office of the General Office of the Changsha Municipal Party Committee. In June 1995, Yang Yiwen was promoted to deputy secretary of the Changsha Municipal Committee of the Communist Youth League. It only took him 5 months to get promoted from the division level to the deputy division level. Since then, he has worked in Changsha City Investment Promotion Bureau, Foreign Economic and Trade Commission, Foreign Trade Bureau, Bureau of Commerce and other departments. In October 2007, Yang Yiwen started his career in Changsha County, the “first county in the central region,” and ushered in the “highlight moment of his political career.” “.
Li Xiangjiang’s official career also followed the rhythm of her husband Yang Yiwen, circling upward all the way. Like Yang Yiwen, Li Xiangjiang also started from the grassroots police station. In December 1988, shortly after Yang Yiwen became a cadre of the Political Department of the Changsha City Public Security Bureau, Li Xiangjiang was transferred to the bureau’s “Public Security Weekly”, and since then he has served as deputy editor-in-chief and editor-in-chief.
After leaving the “Public Security Weekly” agency, Li Xiangjiang successively held leadership positions in the Public Security Cadre Secondary Professional School and the Public Security Police Officer Training Center. In July 2006, Li Xiangjiang joined the party committee team of the Changsha Public Security Bureau, deputy secretary and deputy director of the party committee of the bureau.
After Yang and Li both fell, Liu Yun, the former dean of Changsha College, recalled on Weibo: “After I transferred to Changsha University, there was a time when Li Xiangjiang often accompanied her husband to the old gymnasium of his alma mater to play badminton with me. Yang Yiwen was not good at playing basketball. I often mobilized him to run around the court. Once he was so tired that he couldn’t straighten up his waist. Li Xiangjiang felt sorry for her husband and became anxious. A loving couple!”
There are rumors that Yang Yiwen and Li Xiangjiang “the husband sings and the women follow”, “holding chapters with one hand, and making notes with the other.” The latter even indulged the former to take care of his mistress and developed his mistress into a corrupt “tool man”.
According to an insider, it is only a matter of time before Yang Yiwen’s son and mistress are brought back to justice. Liu Yun also sighed: “Yang Yiwen and his wife worked very hard and climbed the ladder of power step by step. I have witnessed Li Xiangjiang’s love and assistance to her husband during this process. After Yang entered, there was an article on the Internet saying that he had N mistresses. If it is true, the result of Li Xiangjiang’s assistance to her husband’s’success’ is not only the loss of his freedom, but also the love of her husband. There is nothing more sorrowful for a woman than this.”
