From People’s Daily Online via Yulun Jiandu, translated by CDT (continued):
“Burned (“ÁÉß”Âá∫Êù•ÁöÑ),” like Huang Dakang (ÈªÑÂ§ßÂ∫∑), a Hunan tobacco guru. His “adopted” daughter (Âπ≤Â•≥ÂÑø) was murdered and her body was incinerated. Huang called the police, who found a diary of the victim with entries about an “improper relationship” between them and Huang’s bribe taking. When confronted with the evidence, Huang admitted his wrongdoing.
“Picked up (“Êç°”Âá∫Êù•ÁöÑ),” like a industrial materials factory in Dalian. An audit inspection team came over to examine the books of the factory. But examiners found nothing wrong after looking through the company’s ledgers, which were a seamless book cooking success. Right when inspectors were finishing up filling out a report form, the form fell to the floor. When an inspector descended to pick it up, he accidentally picked up an IOU slip for 250,000 yuan and the name of the debtor. Then another two slips were also found under the desk. The three notes were worth 645,000 yuan. Soon it came to light that some company officials misused funds or took bribes totaling 1.08 million yuan.
“Blackmailed (“ËØà”Âá∫Êù•ÁöÑ),” like the chief accountant of a township finance bureau, Mr. Lin, in Guangxi Province. Two appliance installers picked up a briefcase from a karaoke bar in Hengzhou Township (Ê®™Â∑ûÈïá). There were 4,000 yuan in cash, and savings books and other securities, etc. worth 1.8 million yuan. The ID in the case showed it was the township finance bureau’s chief accountant. The two workers plotted to blackmail the official, who didn’t buy it, but instead called police. All three were arrested.
“Scouted (“Êâæ”Âá∫Êù•ÁöÑ),” like Hu Chang Qing (ËÉ°ÈïøÊ∏Ö), former vice governor of Jiangxi Province. In 1999 Hu went to Yunnan for the ribbon-cutting ceremony of Jiangxi Hall at the World Expo. Then he vanished. Some government agencies had an emergency to talk to him about, but people looked all over Kunming without a clue of his whereabouts. Further searching scouted him out at the China Grand Hotel in Guangzhou having a date with his mistress, carrying a fake ID. A high-level official sneaking around using a fake ID attracted attention from higher-ups, thus his downfall.
“Earthquaked (“Èúá”Âá∫Êù•ÁöÑ),” like Qiu Shengchi (ÈÇ±ÁõõÊ±†), an accounting official with Dachuan City’s education bureau in Sichuan. In spring 1999 rumors spead in Dachuan about a possible earthquake. Qiu hastily packed up his belongings and cash and jewelry to run for his life. Out of haste, he left some large-sum certificates of deposits. After the panic, but no earthquake, Qiu reported the loss of his CD. This triggered attention from investigators and he was later found to have illegally amassed hundreds of thousands of yuan.
