The second day's "open
trial" of Bo Xilai by Jinan Court involved no "live
broadcast" with Chinese characteristics which
is image-deprived and animation-lacking (according to China's
state media it demonstrates Chinese authority's confidence
- how tragic it must be then: just after one day, the confidence
apparently has gone with the wind). The timely-delayed
and heavily-edited court records somehow mainly contain
the persecutor's "evidences"
(without witness) that have already been forced fed to the public
for weeks, if not months, but the most important part in the hearing,
the defendant's testimony and his lawyers cross examination are
by and large missing. No wonder some Chinese mentioned this trial
in the same breath with the medieval-style witch hunt by the Cathartic
church or the Reichstag fire trial in the Nazi Germany.
The most despicable thing this medieval or fascist court
did yesterday is to use a wife against her husband (as a
nasty precedent is set, those initiators may not be able
to escape the same fate easily). Yet despite the repeated
pleas made by the defendant to talk to his wife face to face
so as to clarify the matter, the court rejected this most
reasonable request in the excuse that his wife does not wish
to show up in the courtroom, while in the same time demanding
the defendant to answer his wife's alleged accusations against
him. Note, Bo
Xilai and Gu Kailai are known as one of the most loving
couples in China and the way Bo Xilai got himself arrested
involved the exploitation of this loving relationship by
the authority - Gu Kailai was taken away when Bo Xilai was
not home and the couple did not have a chance to say goodbye.
It was only after a month or so, Bo Xilai was informed that
he could visit his wife in detention. That night, Bo was
excited and packed some clean clothes for his wife's use
while in custody. But when he went there, he did not find
his wife but found himself becoming a prisoner. And now the
court tries to force him to believe that his beloved wife
made testimony against him, and forces him to accept it without
talking to his wife.
Of course, the persecutor did have prepared a video that
shows how his wife has rejuvenated both mentally and physically
after being sentenced to death, and how cheerfully and eagerly
she signed testimony to frame her son's father without even
bothering to check the document.
This is a screen shot from that bizarre video:
And the woman in the photos below is also allegedly to be
Bo Xilai's wife when she appeared in court a year ago (no
wonder Chinese authority would accuse Bo Xilai of keeping
sexual relationship with several women):
The following are the real photos of Gu Kailai taken in
January 2007 after being poisoned by heavy metal and developed
As you can see, Gu Kailai is a mentally mature, sharp and
intelligent but physically frail woman around fifty with
well-developed eye bags. Five years later, while still very
sick, she would become a mentally dummy while physically
robust woman as shown on the left photo below, and six years
later she would turn out to be a healthy and cheerful near-60-year
old young lady like the one shown on the right photo below.
Where are her eyebags by the way?
And after all, can the woman on the left and on the right
be the same one?
Now let's take a look at a genuine Gu Kailai about ten years
ago. The photos below were taken with Bo Xilai in Dalian,
the city where the alleged bribery taken place:
And here is a letter by Bo Xilai's 90-year old mother-in-law,
Lady Fan Chengxiu, addressed to China's law enforcement authority
(handwritten probably by Wang
Zhen, a brave Bo Xilai supporter):
On the afternoon of April 19, I received a phone
call from the prison authority, informing me to meet
my daughter Gu Kailai for one hour on my own. I was
not allowed to have any of my family member to go
with me, even just for the purpose of preventing
me from slippery fall.
After seeing my daughter's deviant condition in the
prison, my heart was full of anxiety which hurts me
I was shocked as I walked into the visiting room
and saw Gu Kailai being surrounded by six or seven
prison guards around the table. She
had a such wax face and her big eyes were deeply
sunken in the eye sockets. She was emotionless with
no life in her eye. My heart was in pain.
I said to her, Kailai, how come your face looks so
yellow? She was silent. ...........
Once again I plea you permit me and my family to visit
Gu Kailai routinely which is part of our legal rights.
Please show mercy for her and take care of her illness.
Gu Kailai was poisoned in 2006 by heavy metal which
results serious mental problems. Please allow her to
continue her medical treatment.
Ask yourself, is it possible that Gu Kailai whom her mother
met four months ago is the same one shown in the video?
