    Li Peng's son implicated in massacre of Shengyou farmers



    Hong Kong (AsiaNews) – The Hong Kong daily Ping Guo Ribao (Apple Daily) and other newspapers of the Chinese diaspora claim that the man behind a raid by mercenaries against farmers of Shengyou (Hebei) is none other than Li Peng's son, Li Xiaopeng. Six farmers were killed in the raid.

    Li Peng, who was prime minister in 1989, is held to be the man chiefly responsible for the massacre of Tiananmen.

    Li Xiaopeng is top manager of the Shenhua Company, an electric power firm which wants to expel the farmers from their land to build a new plant to make electric power from high quality carbon.

    Shenhua is a subsidiary firm of Huaneng International, the business complex of electric energy, run by the statesman's son.

    Early in the morning of Saturday 11 June, hundreds of mercenaries killed and assaulted famers of Shengyou village, who for months had resisted the expropriation of their land, earmarked by the local authorities for the construction of a new power station.

    According to the farmers, the bloody raid was planned by local authorities and by high-ranking figures in Beijing, who even moved the Public Security Minister. The farmers' accusations spread through China via the "voice of hope" radio.

    Meanwhile, officials of the department of security of Dingzhou – Shengyou village falls under its jurisdiction – revealed that the inquiry into the attack has already been completed. Its conclusions are mind-blowing: it finds the farmers guilty in the tragedy.

    The report accuses the farmers of, "prompted by extreme egoism, deceiving public opinion, fomenting subversion against Zhongnanhai [the headquarters of the Chinese government – ndr], seriously disturbing order and work." The daily "Taiyang" (the sun) of Hong Kong said that in reality, the report of the department of security was produced by the department of propaganda of Dingzhou.

    Global Times: the pope should accept the independence of the Chinese Church



    After 24 hours of silence, China’s media today published excerpts, comments and editorials about Pope Francis’ interview with Asia Times. Although the pope did not address religious issues or Church problems, many saw the interview as an attempt to improve diplomatic relations between China and the Vatican, and advised Francis to accept Mao Zedong’s "three principles of independence" (theology, administration, jurisdiction), which would leave the power to appoint bishops in the hands of the Party. The People's Daily’s Global Times publishes an editorial on the issue.
