This week’s shout out goes to Jiang Zemin, who is currently being investigated by Xi Jinping’s extensive anti-corruption campaign. Jiang is known as the “ultimate tiger,” which seems to indicate that he has been the goal all along. Many of his highly-ranked supporters and his family have been subjected to investigation as well. One of his supporters, Guo Boxiong, was handed over to prosecutors for punishment recently, which experts believe is just a prelude to the arrests of Jiang and his other supporters. Not only is this relevant because it gives insight into China’s current political situation, Jiang Zemin was largely responsible for the persecution against Falun Gong in the late 1990s, so he is a very significant figure in our class discussions.
