Rumors of the defection of Chinese Vice Minister of State Security Dong Jingwei (董经纬) continue to fester. In a recent interview with the media, Jiang Muzheng (蒋罔正), the self-publisher who originally broke the story, disclosed that he had obtained inside information about Dong’s escape, which involved Xi Jinping’s “Zhijiang New Army” (之江新军).
On June 21, the Vision Times (看中国) exclusively interviewed Jiang Muzheng, the first person to break the news about Dong Jingwei’s escape. Jiang said he got the news of “Dong Jingwei’s defection” through two channels, one is the “Hangda secretary gang” (杭大秘书帮); the other is the former Guangdong Provincial Discipline Inspection Commission Secretary Shi Kehui’s (施克辉) sidekick’s revelation.
Jiang Muzheng said that the main source of the defection news, is the Hangda Secretary Gang. Hangda secretary gang is a special group, Shanghai Municipal Party Secretary Li Qiang (李强), Chongqing Municipal Party Secretary Chen Miner (陈敏尔), Beijing Municipal Party Secretary Cai Qi (蔡奇), Minister of Propaganda Huang Kunming (黄坤明) and Jiangxi’s Liu Qi (刘琦), Henan’s Lou Yangsheng (楼阳生), they are all using Hangda secretary gang secretary.
Jiang said he initially got the revelation from Hong Kong. People close to Shi Kehui, former secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection, obtained information that Dong Jingwei left mainland China and Hong Kong probably because he was involved in some cases in Hong Kong involving Sun Lijun (孙立军), the former vice minister of the Ministry of Public Security, who had fallen from power.
Shi Kehui, who has long served in Zhejiang, is considered a member of Xi’s “Zhijiang New Army”. He served as secretary-general of the Zhejiang Provincial Party Committee (his superiors included Zhao Hongzhu (赵洪祝) and Xia Baolong (夏宝龙), representatives of Xi’s army), then as director of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection office, secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection and director of the Supervisory Commission, and now as head of the discipline inspection and supervision team at the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office.
Jiang said another of his sources, related to Huang Baokun (黄宝坤), director of the Shanghai State Security Bureau, said the other side that Huang Baokun may go to the Ministry of State Security as vice minister. Because Dong Jingwei has run away.
According to the information, Huang Baokun was the director of the State Security Department of Zhejiang Province. he has been the secretary of the party committee and director of the Shanghai State Security Bureau since April 2020.
For the Chinese Communist Party’s response to the incident, Jiang Muzheng believes that the Chinese Communist Party does not have a punctuation mark is true.
Jiang introduced himself as originally serving in the CCP system, but was suppressed by the CCP and then moved from Singapore to Australia. He was the assistant to the president of a provincial branch of a commercial bank. Yao Zuoting (姚作汀), the former first deputy director of the Zhejiang Provincial Development and Reform Commission, was his maternal uncle. So he had connections with the secretaries of many senior cadres in the Zhejiang New Army (“Zhijiang New Army”).
