Bo Xilai Expected To Be Tried For Covering Up Crimes
On Oct. 25, Bo Xilai's second trial finished. Shandong Higher People's Court rejected his appeal, upholding the life sentence. Although observers expected this result, Bo's second trial is still a hot topic for the media.
The CNN reported, "the trial session lasted around 45 minutes with Bo repeatedly interrupting the judge to rebut the court's findings, angering the judge."
The Wall Street Journal says "While that expected decision likely ends the legal drama surrounding Bo himself, many of those he attacked in Chongqing are still waiting for closure."
"Gross illegalities allegedly committed by the Chongqing police during the so-called 'Smash the Black' campaigns ordered by Bo Xilai have yet to be reviewed or reopened."
US-based Epoch Times reported that although Bo's case is finished, Zhongnanhai's political struggle is still ongoing. Around Bo's case, the high-level struggle is intensifying.
Zhou Yongkang, former secretary of Political and Legal Affairs Committee, became another focus figure. It also pulled out former member of Standing Committee, Zeng Qinghong and former Party leader, Jiang Zemin. However, Bo's main crimes of plotting a military coup and live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners are still covered up by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The report says, once the two crimes are unveiled, the CCP will collapse at any time and Bo will be tried again.
