According to the Da Ji Yuan outlet, Heilongjiang Province officially named Bu Yansheng, former Executive Deputy Chief Procurator of Heilongjiang Procuratorate, as one among five cases of “damaging the business environment” on May 12.
The charge reported that from 2004 to 2020, Bu Yansheng had taken advantage of his position to collude with the court broker Zhang Moumou to intervene in 11 enterprise-related cases. These include disputes over project payment arrears, disputes over the assignment of creditor’s rights, disputes over housing sales contracts, and disputes over the landing.
Bu and his accomplice Zhang have jointly created a procedure to earn money. The cooperation has brought Zhang and Bu 20.2416 million yuan (nearly $3 million) in bribes.
Previously, in the trial in July 2021, Bu was accused of seeking benefits for others and receiving bribes in cadre selection and appointment, engaging in power and money transactions, intervening in judicial activities and market economic activities, and illegally accepting bribes in a large amount.
Before the investigation of Bu, Bu’s three bosses have been filed for investigation, including Ren Ruichen, Wang Kelun, and Gan Rongkun.
Both Ren and Gan used to hold the position of Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee. Wang once served as the former chief prosecutor of the Harbin Municipal Procuratorate, Heilongjiang Province.
Ren, Wang, and Gan all were sacked respectively in July 2019, August 2019, and most recently in June 2021.
In addition, the International Organization for Investigating the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) has tracked down Bu, Gan, Ren, and Wang for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Falun Gong is a spiritual practice that became popular in China during the 90s.
