Beijing News commented on Saturday:Chen, a 48-year-old billionaire and president of Jiangsu Huangpu Recycling Resources Co, reportedly decided to shut down one of his companies after failing to keep it afloat, and sought to avoid paying the companys debts by faking the death of a shareholder who is still alive.
That the shareholder Chen and his partners claimed dead is still alive and well, suggests they provided fake evidence in court. That, if confirmed, is more than enough to hold the parties concerned accountable. It is time that the Nanjing police launched an investigation.
However, what has been equally striking is the local polices silence over the many allegations against Chen. Earlier this year, police discovered some 170 forged seals in Chens company in Nanjing, East Chinas Jiangsu province, which were allegedly used to sign contracts worth over 300 million yuan ($45 million). However, they refrained from disclosing any further information after more than half a year, fueling public suspicions that Chen is above the law and immune from punishment.
Even if what he claimed is true－that he had made donations of more than 2 billion yuan ($300 million) and helped more than 700,000 poor families by 2012－it is no excuse for breaking the law. Forgery and providing fake evidence are a lot more serious and damaging than his questionable charitable giving and promotion stunts.0Related StoriesControversial Chen Guangbiao helps in SichuanChen Guangbiao calls for environmental protectionChen Guangbiao: Low carbon works are the biggest philanthropy (I)Chen Guangbiao: Im worthy of the title Low Carbon Ambassador (II)Philanthropist fights report on donationsIs Chen a philanthropist or just a charlatan?Most Viewed Todays Top NewsBRICS countries have every reason to stand togetherValue of green development has been recognizedOnline anchors leading young people astrayNot an easy task to rebuild a collapsed homeSmaller cities key to nationwide real estate policyForum TrendsBaby first, or flat first?Is job hopping a bad thing?Will Mandarin be the language of future?Are literary classics really fit for children?Can China regain its status as the bicycle kingdom?Graffiti – street art or crime?Are you willing to give salary to your wife?ColumnistsUS no better than China on womens rightsEU and UK must talk so they can agree to an amicable divorceFeatured ContributorsThe paradox of the US election and where to go next2016 US election: Will US-China relations change?Star BloggersA Somalis Chinese dream By hedanI came to Hangzhou in the autumn of 2005.
