Lv Jiaping, a history scholar known by Chinese folk as “Jiang Zemin’s nemesis,” died in Beijing on the evening of March 11 at the age of 79. Before his death, Lv published an open letter exposing former Communist Party leader Jiang Zemin’s “two treacheries and two falsehoods”, which caused a public outcry.
Born on June 14, 1941, Lv Jiaping, formerly known as Lv Jiaping, was a native of Jiading, Shanghai. His father, Lv Bingkui, was the director of the health Department of Jiangsu Province and the director of the Chinese Medicine Department of the Ministry of Health of the Communist Party of China. Lv Jiaping’s wife, Yu Junyi, is a fifth-generation granddaughter of Zeng Guofan and a non-partisan. His father was a long-Time interpreter at the British Embassy in China and was a well-known English translator.
On February 21, 2004, Lv Jiaping published the article “Reflecting to the central leadership and NPC deputies and CPPCC members some things and rumors I heard about Jiang Zemin”. late on February 23, Lv Jiaping was arrested by Beijing and Haidian District police at a friend’s house, and Lv Jiaping’s house was also raided.
But the next day, the Internet suddenly warned Jiang Zemin of an ultimatum, saying that every rendezvous between Jiang and Song Zuying was evidenced by a “professional version” of the audio-visual material, and that if Lv Jiaping was not released the next day, the disc would be released to the whole country and the world. To everyone’s surprise, Lv Jiaping was released the same day.
On December 5, 2009, Lv Jiaping again published an open letter in his real name, “An Appeal for Investigation on Jiang Zemin’s ‘Two Traitors, Two Fakes’ and Political Fraud”, causing a public outcry.
The “two traitors” refers to the fact that Jiang Zemin himself and his own father were both “Japanese traitors” and that Jiang Zemin was also a “Soviet Russian spy working for the KGB” and thus sold out a large part of China to Russia. The second falsehood is that Jiang Zemin was a “Japanese traitor”.
The “second falsehood” is that Jiang Zemin pretended to be a “false member” who joined the Chinese Communist Party underground before 1949; Jiang also pretended to be the adopted son of Jiang Shangqing, a so-called “martyr” of the Chinese Communist Party, and a false “martyr’s” son. He was the adopted son of a so-called “martyr” Jiang Shangqing, a fake “martyr’s” son.
The open letter was widely circulated on the Internet and was published by several overseas media.
On August 13, 2010, Lv Jiaping again wrote an article entitled “The Latest Evidence on Jiang Zemin’s Fake CCP Underground Members” and was secretly arrested by the CCP authorities in September of the same year and later charged with “inciting subversion of state power” and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Before his arrest, Lv Jiaping told the Epoch Times, “The greatest achievement in the past eight years is that I got this material (the new evidence of fake underground party members), which was mostly inference in the past, without direct evidence. The case can be made against Jiang Zemin.”
Lv Galpin, who is seriously ill, has applied for medical parole several times in prison, but has been denied. It was not until Feb. 17, 2015, that he was granted medical parole to leave prison.
Lu’s son Yu Haochen told New Tang Dynasty that his father was released because of a “pardon” granted by Xi Jinping.
Yu Haochen said that his father had applied for medical parole three times, and this is the third time he was released. “The second time he was on medical parole, he was about to be released, and then someone reportedly revealed this information to Jiang Zemin, who personally called their people to instruct them to stop Lv Galpin from coming out.”
Yu Haochen revealed that his father wrote a report to Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang this time asking for an Amnesty. This report was then given to the leaders of this prison, and soon, a few days later, his father was released.
Yu Haochen recently told the Epoch Times that his father had returned to his hometown of Hunan from Beijing and his health was deteriorating after a fall in September last year. He returned to Beijing for treatment last December and died at 7:05 p.m. on March 11 in Beijing.
Yu Haochen said, “I believe history will give my father a fair evaluation, it’s not like there are a few people who can just place a charge because they hold power.”
At 11 a.m. on March 14, a memorial service for Lv Galpin was held at Beijing’s Babaoshan Funeral Hall. Yu Haochen said his father’s greatest wish during his lifetime was that Jiang Zemin would be duly punished and that he would be able to right his name.
