From My CDT Post

More than 300 hundred investigators from the Central Committee of Discipline Inspection have stationed in Beijing, ready to launch a full investigation on the possible corruptions of Beijing officials, Hong Kong magazine Ya Zhou Zhou Kan reported. The magazine said the investigation is one of a series of anti-corruption campaigns Hu Jingtao kicked off to curb corruptions in China’s three major cities: Beijing, Tianjin, and Shanghai.

The investigation in Beijing is even on a larger scale than in Shanghai. The investigators gather in a hotel at No. 8 Wanshou Road.

Shanghai investigators station in Moller Villa Hotel, a 70-year old building got well-known overnight after Chen Liangyu was sacked.

The investigation team has encountered strong resistance in Beijing. The magazine reported that the team received a mail explosive a few days ago.

Jia Qinglin, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau, is implicated in some scandals under investigation.

Earlier, 2,000-ton noxious stale rice was discovered in Beijing. Beijing authorities managed to cover the news until Ya Zhou Zhou Kan publicized it. The magazine also reported that the noxious rice is circulating in market, which the authorities denied.

Jing Liang Heng Ye (京粮恒业), a state owned company, is allegedly involved in the selling of the rice.
