Henan black case involved 12 umbrella political and legal committee secretary involved in the case

On May 5, the official website of the Communist Party of China (CPC) published an article stating that Li Jubin, the main suspect in a gang-related case in Luoyang, Henan Province, had suddenly “evaporated” while the public security authorities were handling the case. During the investigation, it was discovered that Li Weixin, the director of the second prosecution department of the Luoyang City Procuratorate, had tipped off Li Jubin in advance and protected him all the way from Luoyang to Thailand.

In addition to Li Weixin, 12 public officials, including Li Baoguo, secretary of the local political and legal committee, are suspected of acting as Li Jubin’s umbrella.

According to official media, Li was sentenced to five years in prison for robbery, and after his release from prison in August 2000, he made his fortune by contracting for projects, then opened a guarantee company and an underground casino, gradually forming a gang of black and evil forces.

The company’s main goal is to provide a platform for the development of the company’s products and services.

On October 24, 2019, Li Jubin, who was in Thailand, surrendered to the Chinese Consulate General in Chiang Mai.

In 2020, Li Baoguo and Li Weixin fell one after another. Currently, Li Baoguo was sentenced to three years in prison for taking bribes.

The case has sparked heated debate among netizens. Some netizens said that one person is involved in 12 umbrellas, how corrupt the officialdom must be. Some netizens also said that this is not surprising, in mainland China, such cases abound, this is the social norm in mainland China.
