Bo Xilai caused serious harm, new Chongqing leader says
Bo's successor Zhang Deijiang attacks him because he "gravely damaged the party and nation's image" in this scandal. Now we must "uphold the principle that all are equal before the law" and go back to harmonious development.

Chongqing (AsiaNews) - Bo Xilai and his time in office "have gravely damaged the party and nation's image," said Zhang Dejiang, Bo's successor as Chongqing party chief. Chongqing must now own up to what happened, which harmed to the leadership. Still, for Zheng, too much attention has been given to the case.

Bo Xilai, former Chongqing party chief and Politburo member, was thrown out of the Communist Party and is now under investigation. His wife has been accused of murdering British businessman Neil Heywood, who was found dead last November.

The economic and legal scandals that followed their fall have been described as another Tiananmen for the party.

Speaking at the city's Communist Party congress, Zhang boasted about Chongqing's development, but said it was being overshadowed by the clouds swirling around Bo.

Many things must still be done before anyone can feel satisfied. Now we must "Resolutely uphold the principle that all are equal before the law, and never let any person or group put themselves above the law," he said.

Nothing to toast between China and the Vatican: Beijing wants complete control
by Bernardo CervelleraFor the Global Times (the People's Daily) China does not like the "Vietnamese model" of agreed episcopal ordinations. The Chinese Foreign Ministry’s embarrassment in front of the Holy See’s countless efforts. China wants the Vatican to accept all excommunicated bishops and to keep silent on those who are underground and imprisoned. The case of Msgr. Cosma Shi Enxiang. Without religious freedom, diplomatic relations are pointless. The work of mission and the unity of Catholics in China. A task for Xi Jinping: implement the anti-corruption campaign in the Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Patriotic Association, which have grown rich over the decades on the backs of Christians.
