South­west China’s Yun­nan Prov­ince for the first time held a meet­ing to clear the name of a de­part­ment of­fi­cial who was framed by a dis­grun­tled re­tired of­fi­cial af­ter the for­mer was wrongly blamed for mis­con­duct in deal­ing with a mass dis­tur­bance.

Ac­cord­ing to a meet­ing held by the dis­ci­pline in­spec­tion com­mis­sion of Yun­nan, the re­tired sec­re­tary of the po­lit­i­cal and le­gal af­fairs com­mis­sion of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) in Honghe pre­fec­ture, He Jian, made a wrong ac­cu­sa­tion against Yao Guo­hua, sec­re­tary of the lo­cal CPC com­mit­tee, peo­ple.com.cn re­ported on Thurs­day.

In re­ports to su­pe­rior of­fi­cials, He said that Yao made wrong de­ci­sions in deal­ing with a mass dis­tur­bance. He also sent anony­mous mes­sages to dozens of of­fi­cials in Honghe pre­fec­ture to slan­der Yao and in­cite oth­ers to re­port “Yao’s wrong deeds.”

Af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of He’s re­ports, the pro­vin­cial dis­ci­pline in­spec­tion com­mis­sion found the ac­cu­sa­tions to­ward Yao were ground­less. His be­hav­iors have se­verely harmed in­ner Party unity, dis­turbed the daily work of the pre­fec­ture and af­fected so­cial sta­bil­ity.

It turns out that He did this out of dis­sat­is­fac­tion with his treat­ment in re­tire­ment.

He was re­moved from the Party as pun­ish­ment and his pen­sion as a re­tired of­fi­cial has been can­celed. The in­ves­ti­gat­ing and pros­e­cut­ing or­gans in Yun­nan will con­duct an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of him.

This case should at­tract the at­ten­tion of dis­grun­tled of­fi­cials who use their po­lit­i­cal in­flu­ence to con­front the Party com­mit­tee, and ed­u­ca­tion of such of­fi­cials should be strength­ened, said Feng Zhili, an of­fi­cial from the dis­ci­pline in­spec­tion com­mit­tee in Yun­nan.
