Wang Lijun Probe Could Mean Bleak Future for Bo Xilai

BEIJING - Gu Kailai, the wife of the former leader of the Communist Party of China Bo Xilai , he confessed, according to the Daily Telegraph was to tie her to a hotel room chair Neil Heywood and force him to swallow cyanide.

According to British newspaper, citing "American diplomats," the first confession would have been with Kailai Gu Lijun Wang , a former police chief of Chongqing and collaborator Bo Xilai. Upset by the revelation, he would have faced Bo Wang, informing it of what he had learned.

Then, panicked, sought refuge in the American Consulate in nearby Chengdu, probably fearing for his life. Between 6 and 7 February Wang has spent nearly 30 hours at the consulate, where he told the American diplomats the details on the murder of the businessman UK Heywood, who died in mysterious circumstances in November in a hotel room in Chongqing , the city where Bo Xilai was the secretary of the Communist Party.

"According to Wang - the Daily Telegraph - Heywood, a businessman with decades of experience in China family friend of Bo and his wife, was retained in his hotel room and forced to swallow cyanide. Subsequently, Ms. Gu allegedly confessed the crime. "

One source claimed that Gu said "I have been" three times. "It 'was a horrible scene - he added - Heywood spat cyanide and were forced to give him another."

Many commentators have expressed doubts about the flurry of revelations emerged in recent days, from more sources "who prefer to keep the 'anonymity'. Cheng Li, a respected expert on Chinese politics who works in the U.S., said he does not believe that Bo Wang has threatened to reveal the story. "I do not think that makes sense. The entire career of Wang and 'based on a relationship between' patron 'and customers with Bo Xilai. He was considered a confidant of Bo and was aware of many of his shameful secret, if not all. As police chief of Chongqing had done many questionable things. He may have thought of not being able to hide the facts, but the same, something is back. "

The Telegraph, without citing any sources, Wang adds that, "he told exactly the same things," the investigators that the Chinese have taken over when it leaves the Consulate (for which he refused on asylum policy). According to sources in Hong Kong, the official conclusion of the ongoing investigation of Bo Gu and Wang would be imminent. The woman risks the death penalty and Wang, who has "worked" could escape the gallows, where he would lead a charge of "treason".

It is unclear what will be charged with Bo Xilai, according to the only official statement issued to date on each other and 'under investigation for "serious violations of Party discipline." Before the explosion of drama Bo, 62, son of one of the "eight immortals" communist leaders, Bo Yibo, was considered a candidate for the Permanent Committee of the Political Bureau (Cpup) will be elected at the next Communist Party Congress in autumn. In addition to being party secretary of Chongqing was one of 25 members of 'Political Bureau. On 10 April it was announced that he had been removed from all offices.
