Bo Xilai to go on trial this week

The trial of Bo Xilai, a former darling of the all-powerful Communist Party, will begin Thursday, China's state-run Xinhua news agency said.

Authorities claim Bo abused his official state position to seek financial benefits, resulting in "huge losses to the nation and the people."

He is charged with bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power, the Jinan Intermediate People's Court said Sunday

    You must be kidding. Bo Xilai must be awarded Nobel Prize for swift ousting Hu Jintao and miraculously bringing Xi Jiping to power. Bo Xilai must not court marshaled to please David Cameron who’s happy to have Beijing buy British bankruptcies and foreclosures in Renminbi. Never mind about murdering the Old Harrovian scammer. This can wait. Neil Heywood was busted shagging Bo Xilai Prodigal son Bo Guagua while he was quarantined in Harvard University's Kennedy School. Bo Xilai’s jealous wife Gu Kailai was jailed for Neil Heywood Death. It’s an honor killing if it is proved. Neil Heywood was Chongqing Jane; he kept his miniature phallus outta zipper public for CCP-PLA secondhand concubines. Neil Heywood was a genius his Monsanto testosterone murdered him.
