How Hu Jintao to End Bo Xilai's Case?
When will Bo Xilai's case hear publicly?
Many people in the world have focused this case.
The Associated Press reported that the Chinese Communist
Party's (CCP) leadership is facing a difficult choice.
They want to end this case but don't want hurt the party.
The U.S. CNN commented that Bo Xilai's case disrupted
Hu Jintao's arrangement.
To guarantee a smooth step down, Hu Jintao
is scaling back on the investigation scope of Bo's case.
CNN commented on June 6 that Hu Jintao, the general
secretary of CCP, is scaling back the investigation into
Bo Xilai in exchange for two more service years
as the chairman of the Central Military Committee,
as well as an arrangement for his faction to gain leadership
in the Politburo.
The comment also pointed out that a CCP internal
document labeled Bo's case as an "isolated incident"
and Hu Jintao wants to limit the scope of the investigation
to Bo Xilai and his wife Gu Kailai.
Heng He, current affairs' commentator: "Bo Xilai had
maximized his power and created so many injustice cases in such limited time.
In principle, his actions are not different from CCP's actions.
That's the reason why CCP doesn't want to handle
his case appropriately.”
Heng He thinks there's 4 possible explanations to Bo's case:
first is internal struggling within CCP on its guildlines;
second is each factions plot to usurp power; third is violate
the law's enforcement during striking the gangland.
And the forth is avoiding to set a criminal offense.
Heng He: "All the CCP officials are corrupt now.
But Bo Xilai was thought by many people to be a person
who can strike against the gangland.
If CCP unveiled that Bo Xilai is a gangster, people will see
the only person who dare to strike the gangland within CCP is a big gangster, which is like to expose the evil of CCP.
That's the reason why CCP will gloss over Bo's real crimes
and only give him a slap on the wrist.”
Zhang Sutian, another current affairs' commentator, thinks
Bo Xilai's case is challenging the CCP's ruling position and violates the biggest taboo of CCP.
CCP leaders will not ignore Zhou Yongkang's rebellion
attempt, but how to end it is a difficult choice for Hu Jintao.
Zhang Sutian: "The biggest obstacle blocking Hu Jintao
in dealing with Bo Xilai's case publicly is not Zhou Yongkang
or Zeng Qinghong, is not the CCP's founding members,
but is the CCP's system organization.
Now, Hu Jintao is worried that once he deals with
those people publicly and sentence them with the crime
of coup d'etat, it will threaten the ruling legitimacy
of CCP, and the safety of CCP.”
Recently, in a high profile way, Hu Jintao showed that he
controls the Beijing Military Region, and many military leaders showed their loyalty.
During the Bo Xilai case investigation, the chief bodyguard
of Wen Jiabao, who is the vice secretary of the Central Guard
Bureau, was fired;
the assistant to Deputy Minister of State Security was arrested
on charges of espionage relating to more than 350 officials in Ministry of State Security.
Behind these cases is further meaning
that is moving the opponent.
Zhang Sutian: "Hu Jintao is consolidating his power
in the military.
In my eyes, the reason why he hasn't make the decision on
Bo Xilai's case is that he need power to arrange the next steps.”
CCP's leadership will shift in the 18th National Congress.
Many people suspected that Bo Xilais's case
will conclude before it.
But for Hu Jintao's next steps, the development will take time.
