Will Jiang Zemin be criminally prosecuted in the near future?

Posted by: UtherPenguin

Long story short: Jiang was the former chief of the CCP and Chinese premier from the late 80's to the early 2000's. The new premier, XI Jinping is cracking down on Jiang's political faction in CCP under corruption allegiations. Starting off with Jiang's former minister of Commerce Bo Xilai, then former Secretary Chief of Staff Zhou Yongkang, now Jiang is under house arrest. Is it possible that Xi will use this as an opportunity to prosecute JIang (hence removing the strongest of his political opponents)?

  • He can't. Prosecuting the former head of state will be a major embarrassment for China. His minions will be used as scapegoats, but he himself will be immune to Xi's anti-corruption campaign. (Besides, do you think Xi doesn't fear making too many enemies?)

@Sciguy: I can't tell if you're trolling or meant it...

@Diqiucun_Cunmin I do not mean a word up there. Did you know what I said?

@UtherPenguin It is utterly impossable for me to speak English among idiocy and fools alike.
