Whistle-blower arrested for economic crimes in S China


08:44, November 29, 2012

SHENZHEN, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- A whistleblower was arrested in south China's Guangdong Province suspected of economic crimes on Tuesday, the same day the official he exposed was suspended from duty for his huge property portfolio, police told Xinhua Wednesday.

Police in Longgang Branch of Shenzhen Municipal Public Security Bureau said Zhou Zujie had been arrested for suspected false declarations of the registered capital for four companies.

"His arrest has nothing to do with him exposing Zhou Weisi," a police officer, who declined to be named, said.

Zhou Weisi, deputy head of Nanlian Community Workstation, a subordinate of Longgang District Neighborhood Community in Shenzhen City of Guangdong, was suspended for allegedly owning property worth at least 2 billion yuan (321 million U.S. dollars). This is far more than can be afforded on the income of an ordinary official.

Tip-off material that Zhou Zujie uploaded and later went viral online accused Zhou Weisi of possessing more than 80 houses, villas, factories and mansions, more than 20 luxury cars and a high-end hotel.
