Jiang Zemin’s confidant Liang Guanglie appeared in time to withdraw from the dirty to avoid a disaster

Recently, Liang Guanglie, Jiang Zemin’s confidant and former Minister of National Defense of the Communist Party of China, appeared in Sichuan.

Recently, Liang Guanglie, Jiang Zemin’s confidant and former minister of the Chinese Communist Party‘s Ministry of National Defense, appeared in Sichuan, raising concerns. Previously, it was reported that Liang Guanglie was investigated for a long Time when something happened to Xu Caihou, the vice chairman of the Communist Party’s military commission, after which Liang took the initiative to return the stolen goods to avoid being investigated temporarily.

On March 30, Beijing-based Dovetail.com reported that a video circulated on March 27 showed Liang Guanglie, who is over 80 years old, wearing a brown and red top and holding a crutch, returning to the ancient city of Tongchuan in Sichuan’s Santai County, surrounded by a crowd of people.

Liang Guanglie was introduced by an interpreter while visiting the ancient city of Tongchuan. Onlookers hold up their cell phones to take videos.

Liang Guanglie is a close associate of former Communist Party leader Jiang Zemin, who was promoted from commander of the Nanjing Military Region to chief of the General Staff in 2002 and became one of the representatives of Jiang’s gang against Hu and Wen’s camp.

Liang Guanglie also has an unusual relationship with Bo Xilai, the former secretary of the Chongqing Municipal Committee of the Communist Party. During Hu Jintao’s November 2011 visit to Hawaii, the Chengdu Military Region held a military exercise in Chongqing, where Bo Xilai was in charge, and Liang Guanglie was there to support Bo in his capacity as a member of the Central Military Commission and Minister of National Defense.

In 2012, before Xi Jinping came to power, the scandal of Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai plotting a coup also came to light after the scandal of former Chongqing Public Security Bureau chief Wang Lijun’s escape from the U.S. consulate broke out. The coup was conceived by Jiang Zemin and Zeng Qinghong, and carried out by Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai to bring Xi Jinping down, but it finally went bust when Wang Lijun fled the U.S. consulate.

According to previous reports in the Hong Kong media, Liang Guanglie was involved in the coup plot by Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai. He was also one of the backers of former Vice Minister of General Logistics Gu Junshan.

The newspaper quoted military sources as saying that when Xu Caihou was in trouble, Liang Guanglie was also investigated for a long time, but then Liang voluntarily returned his stolen goods and said he would not interfere with the Communist Party’s military, thus avoiding Xu Caihou’s downfall.

Back in 2010, there was a lot of news about Liang Guanglie being investigated for corruption. At the time, there were reports on the Internet that he was selling military land for profit. Liang Guanglie’s two sons were typical gangsters in the military compound, and they did “official business” by virtue of Liang’s power.

During his tenure as Chief of General Staff, Liang Guanglie sold more than 7,000 mu of land of the units under the General Staff, enriching billions of yuan from it. At that time, Hu Jintao was very angry with Liang Guanglie’s evil deeds.
