Bo Xilai’s police chief exposed him and after a year the court sentenced him to life imprisonment, China

Who is Bo Xilai and why has he been awarded life imprisonment?
Beginning, Bo Xilai was a member of the Communist Party Politburo and the chief of Chongqing city. He had been known for his honest work with no self ambition of acquiring gain from his political life. His image was highly respected among his people. But this image had been shattered by one of his own police chief Wang Lijun, who took asylum in US and then opened all the dark secrets behind Bo Xilai fake image.
The exposure travelled from top level corruptions that involved every activity of a thug, to the death of British Businessman Neil Heywood. A year back the Chinese officials tried to frame the death of British businessman Neil Heywood as a result of alcohol poisoning. But whistle blower Wang exposed the whole truth related with Heywood’s death. Following the trail, Bo’s wife Gu Kailai was also found guilty and was rewarded suspended death sentence and police chief Wang Lijun fifteen years of prison for attempts to cover up the crime. At that time Bo was also under the scanner for trying to become a big obstacle while investigating Heywood’s death and tampering evidence. This led his fellow men to expel him from the party. The swords of Heywood death was already swinging on his head, along which came other charges in which he had been accused of accepting bribes worth $3.6 million and stealing more than $800 000 from the state funds. To top it all Bo Xilai refused to cooperate with the authorities in any case or in any investigation. Non- cooperation with officials itself is considered the biggest crime in China.
Thus following all the charges the court has awarded him life -long imprisonment, depriving him of all his political rights for his life and further confiscating all his assets. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
