Li Huidi (李慧镝), Filtered from Chinese Search Engines Today?

14_1705540_86bbbbeee4cbb9c7bf97985e693b8dc9Since yesterday, “李慧镝” became the most rapidly increased searched term on But Chinese netizens immediately noticed that the actual search results in both Baidu and show no results, except one line to say that “Search results may not comply with the relevant laws, regulations and policy, and cannot be displayed.” This naturally generated questions among many Chinese netizens: Who is Li Huidi? And why are search results of his name being filtered inside China?

The following information is from Hudong Baike, translated by CDT:

Li Huidi, male, born in 1968, son of Li Changchun, standing committee of Politburo of China Communists Party’s Central Committee; currently vice-president of China Mobile Group.

Li Huidi has a very professional work background: he was previously vice president of Lianxiang Cell, VP of UTSidakang.
In July 2008, Li moved to China Mobile as assistant to the CEO.

On Jan 13, 2010, China Mobile formally announced at the “Annual Work Meeting of China Mobile, 2010” , that Li Huidi had been appointed VP of the Group, in charge of TD Network building and sales.



CDT just tested the search result at the time of this post; the search is still filtered, and Baidu now shows results. [It is a well-known fact that Baidu “cleans up” their search results without notifying users.]
