China Power Struggle: Family of Former Chinese Security Boss Arrested, Disgraced
Revelations about the crimes of the family of Zhou Yongkang, the former public security chief, hint what is in store for him

There are a number of reliable rules in Chinese communist politics. One of them is that the family members, friends, and associates of powerful officials are also afforded protection.

So it spoke volumes, recently, when detail after detail about the corruption of the family of Zhou Yongkang tumbled out in Chinese media reports.

Zhou is the former security czar of the Chinese Communist Party, and a former member of the Politburo Standing Committee, the highest body of power in the regime. Since 2012 it has been reported that he is under a cloud of suspicion, but in the last few months there are increasing signs that his misdeeds, and a reckoning for them, will be made public and finally official.

One of the telltale signs of this shift is the relentless publication of details of the corruption of his son Zhou Bin, and his son’s associates, along with his former colleagues, and the industries, which he used to control.

Such attacks on family members “have never been done at this scale before,” said Heng He, a political commentator with New Tang Dynasty Television.
