Li Wenhua, who often publicizes sweeping the black and eliminating evil to villagers, was arrested for involving the black.
He is a branch of the original village of Beiqinghe Village in Zanhuang County, Hebei Province. He has served as a deputy to the county peoples Congress for three consecutive years and has also won the title of Top Ten Excellent Party Branch Secretary. On October 26, 2018, the Shijiazhuang Disciplinary Commission notified the other side of the Star Village Branch Book - involving blacks, guns, drugs and gambling.
The circular mentioned that since 2007, Li Wenhua has been recruiting drug addicts, released after serving his sentence and social idlers, setting up casinos, illegal gun-holding and holding drug addicts, and gradually forming criminal gangs of a triad nature. The organization has repeatedly used violence, threats and other means to assault innocent people and injure seven people. Police found that Li Wenhua and others were suspected of 44 crimes, including 17 charges of provoking trouble, illegal detention, illegal gun-holding and intentional injury.
Zanhuang County, located in the southwest mountainous area of Hebei Province, is a poverty-stricken county at the national level, while Beiqinghe Village is a poverty-stricken village in Zanhuang County. According to the Shijiazhuang Discipline Commissions bulletin, Li Wenhua made more than 30 million yuan through illegal mining, illegal land occupation and loan fraud during his seven years as a village branch. The whistleblowers made repeated letters and visits, but received no response.
Until March 2018, the 15th Central Inspection Group will transfer the clues of Li Wenhuas suspected crimes to the Shijiazhuang Discipline Commission. Shortly afterwards, 120 police officers were deployed to capture 22 people, including Li Wenhua, his wife and brother.
At the same time as Li Wenhua was captured, police searched his home for bribery bills. Some of the bribery bills obtained by journalists from the Beijing News show that Li Shiqi, deputy county governor of Zanhuang County Government, Shang Xumin, deputy chairman of the CPPCC, Yan Jianan, deputy director of the county public security bureau, Jiao Ruifeng, acting captain of the Criminal Police Brigade and other leading cadres appeared in the bribery bills, and four of them are currently detained according to law. A staff member of Hebei Provinces public security system disclosed that dozens of people were involved in the list.
Shijiazhuang Discipline Commission reported that 119 Party members or public officials were examined and investigated in this case, including 16 County cadres, 60 Township cadres, 36 general cadres and 7 other non-public officials (all Party members). On December 15, 2018, a reporter from the Beijing News learned from the local public security department that the case had been transferred to the Procuratorate for review and prosecution.

Shaojiangs wife called Li Wenhua her uncle. In recent years, they have had business contacts. He told the Beijing News that Li Wenhua had an average family background in his early years and his parents were ordinary local farmers. When he was young, he was a social gangster. Everyone else worked in the fields. He never worked.
Li Wenhua was first imprisoned in 1984. At that time, 23-year-old Li Wenhua was sentenced to two yearsimprisonment by Zanhuang County Court for his style of life. After he was released from prison, he drove carts, transported goods and did some small business in the county, but he didnt make much money. Shao Jiang said.
Li Wenhuas later prosperity came from gambling. Xia Hengbing, a police officer of Shijiazhuang Public Security Bureau, said in an interview with the media that around 2009, Li Wenhua started to open a casino and found the first barrel of gold, about 45 million.
Li Wenhua likes to gamble. Its not a secret in the village. Shao Jiang told the Beijing News that people who like gambling in Zanhuang County call Li Wenhua Miss Li. He knows this well and is a good hand in Zanhuang. Mahjong machine he was the first contact, thousands of tricks, contact lenses, when no one else heard of, he used it.
In Li Wenhuas gambling game, people often lose tens of thousands of yuan overnight. He often makes connections with the rich people around him and gambles with them. In the card game, use some tactics to win money. We have a small boss in the mountain area, who lost more than 2 million dollars and ruined his family. Shao Jiang said.
After accumulating millions of capital through gambling, Li Wenhua and his friends contracted County hostels around 2010. In Shao Jiangs view, after contracting the hostel, Li Wenhua climbed up the relationship with some officials, which facilitated him to become a village branch book in the future.
Star Village Branch Book
Around 2011, Li Wenhua, who has accumulated capital and official connections, began to seek political glory.
According to Yin Sangang and Hou Sanni, villagers of Beiqinghe Village, around 2011, Li Wenhua spent 5,000 yuan to deal with membership through the then Village Branch letter of Beiqinghe Village. It is said that he has been sentenced, which does not meet the requirements of Party members. But at that time, he made a false material and issued a certificate of innocence, which made him a party member. A person familiar with the situation said.
In November of that year, he was elected secretary of the village branch by delivering oil and rice to villagers, and later served as director of the village committee. According to people familiar with the situation, Li Wenhua and Shang Xumin, vice-chairman of the Zanhuang County Political Consultative Conference, are classmates and have close ties with Li Shiqi, vice-chairman of the Zanhuang County Government. According to media reports, Li Shiqi was the party secretary of his superior government in Nanqing Hexiang when he ran for the village branch.
After Shangcun Zhishu, Li Wenhua began to pack himself through the media. He once told a villager to say more good things about him in front of the media.
Shijiazhuang Daily once published the report Li Wenhua, Secretary of the Party Branch of Beiqinghe Village, Zanhuang County. According to the report, the village of Beiqing River in Zanhuang County is very poor. Li Wenhua, who went to the county town to do business in his early years, is a successful person in the village. Looking at the villagerspoor life, the village committees made several visits and finally dragged Li Wenhua back to the village.
The report mentions that in the second year of Dangshang Village Branch Book, Li Wenhua established Huashun Agricultural Specialized Cooperative and Qianbai Eco-Agriculture Co., Ltd. to transfer 5200 mu of forest land through social capital investment, farmer land equity, forest land scale management and industrial corporatization. The whole park is expected to achieve a profit of 100 million yuan in three years, and the villagers who join the cooperatives can earn more than 10,000 yuan per person. Li Wenhua said in an interview.
At that time, Li Wenhuas practice of land circulation was regarded as a typical example, and he became a local star Village Branch book. He not only won the title of Top Ten excellent Party branch secretary of the county, but also served as the deputy of the county peoples Congress for three consecutive years.
But in fact, the area and profit of land transfer in the village are far from the figures mentioned by Li Wenhua. On December 17, 2018, Yin Li, the current village branch of Beiqing River Village, told the Beijing News that the land transferred in the village was not 5,200 mu, but more than 1,000 mu. As part of the land is wasted and poorly managed, so far, the park has not been profitable.
Villagers Yin Sangang recalled that at that time, farmersland was leased and transferred to cooperatives. Villagers can get a rent of 1000 yuan per mu of land each year when they sell their land. Li Wenhua told me that no matter how long things grow on the ground, they can get rent every year. After listening to this, I was thinking that when the land is desolate, I can still earn money. Isnt that a lie to the state?
As Yin Sangang suspected, Li Wenhua merged the villages land into an agricultural park through land transfer, and controlled the actual management right in his own name, thus cheating banks for loans and special state funds of more than 10 million yuan. He just used the land and went to the bank to cheat the loan. In fact, the land was rented from the villagers. He didnt have much land for himself.

Illegal Profit of 30 million USD Drug Control Two Committees
Zanhuang County, located in the southwest of Shijiazhuang, is a mountainous county and a key county in the national poverty alleviation and development work. Beiqinghe Village is a well-known poverty-stricken village in the county. There are 1892 people in the village, and about 60% of them are poor. According to the Shijiazhuang Disciplinary Commission, it was in this poor village that Li Wenhua and others illegally obtained more than 30 million yuan of economic benefits in seven years by controlling the two committees regime.
Shao Jiang told the Beijing News that Li Wenhua had contracted the village heating company and his family members had done sand mining business beside the village river. In addition, Li Wenhua has been lending for a long time, earning high interest rates.
Shao Jiang, a financial businessman, said that in August 2013, through him, Li Wenhua had lent 20 million yuan to a real estate company in Shijiazhuang, with an annual interest of 30%. In addition, Li Wenhua once lent millions of yuan to Zanhuangs local real estate company at a high interest rate of 4 cents a month.
Most of the money was borrowed from banks by land transfer. Shao Jiang said that some people also transferred money to Li Wenhuas wifes company and lent it out to him. He earned interest margin from the middle. According to some of the bills collected by journalists from the Beijing News, from June 30, 2014 to July 9, 2014, a total of 2.5 million yuan was transferred to the company under his wifes name in nine days.
In the eyes of villagers Yin Sangang, through the aforementioned business, Li Wenhua, who has gradually become wealthy, not only built luxury houses, but also took drugs for a long time.
Li Wenhuas home is called Lis Grand Courtyard by the local people. He bought farmland from villagers and built a house of 8.8 mu. The house is a quadrangle style manor with fish ponds and pavilions. After taking office as a village branch, he directly placed the village committee in the Li family courtyard.
Since 2014, Li Wenhua, a long-term drug addict, has repeatedly organized drug abuse under the Li Jiayuan organization, in order to achieve the purpose of controlling and enclosing his subordinates. Xia Hengbing, a police officer of Shijiazhuang Public Security Bureau, said in an interview with the media, If he does well, he will provide drugs free of charge; if he does badly, he will punish these people accordingly; if he does badly, he will report these people taking drugs.
Shaojiang told the Beijing News that Yin Guoqiang, Li Wenhuas driver (not his real name), began to take drugs after contacting Li Wenhua. In August 2016, Yin Guoqiang offended him for asking for loans. Li Wenhua used means to send Yin Guoqiang to Shijiazhuang for compulsory drug treatment.

Shaojiang and Li Wenhua fought each other in 2016. According to his introduction, around 2014, Li Wenhua borrowed a sum of money from him, and the village heating company owed Li Wenhua millions of yuan. This heating company is responsible for nearly half of the countys heat supply. Shao Jiang saw the potential of the company and proposed to let Li Wenhua help buy the company to offset the debt. After listening, Li Wenhua agreed and patted his chest and said, Ill talk. The price is certainly right.
In November 2014, Li Wenhua negotiated with the heating company for a price of 13.8 million yuan. Shao Jiang thought the price was right, so he bought the company. Xia Hengbing, a police officer of Shijiazhuang Public Security Bureau, said in an interview with the media that Li Wenhua used unconventional means when negotiating with the heating company. By organizing villagers to make trouble for the heating company, he made it impossible for the heating company to operate normally. The low price will buy the heating company into their own hands.
Villagers who had participated in the incident told the Beijing News that at that time, Li Wenhua encouraged six nearby villagers to block doors, stop vehicles and ask for pollution fees on the grounds of environmental pollution by heating companies. Later, when the heating company couldnt work, it turned it over to him. The villagers mentioned that after Li Wenhua took over the company, he stopped talking about pollution.
Shao Jiang said that at first, in order to facilitate management, he appointed Li Wenhua as the person in charge. A month later, the two sides in Zanhuang County Administrative Services Hall for the transfer of equity procedures, all shares transferred to his name.
In 2016, someone offered to buy heating company from Li Wenhua at a high price. Li Wenhua was moved and put forward the purchase intention to Shaojiang. At the beginning, we talked about more than 2 million people, but on the first day of signing the agreement, Li Wenhua regretted that he had no money. Later, he continued to trouble me, trying to dominate the company.
Shao Jiang told the Beijing News that on the evening of November 15, 2016, Li Wenhua called and asked him to go out to discuss matters. At 11 oclock that evening, after arriving at the district where Li Wenhua lived in the county town, Shaojiang was under the control of several men and beaten. One of them put a knife around my neck and refused to let me go. Subsequently, he was taken to the Li Family Courtyard in Beiqing River Village. Five or six people, such as Li Wenhuas son and Gans son, kept him in custody.
It was not until Shaojiang, which had been restricted to freedom for nearly 30 hours, was released after the signing of the letter of the gratuitous transfer of heating companies. The next day, Shaojiang came to the Chengguan Branch of Zanhuang County Public Security Bureau to report the case. Shortly afterwards, he reflected the incident to the Hebei Provincial Public Security Department. On December 23, 2016, Zanhuang County Public Security Bureau filed a case of Shaojiang being illegally detained. On May 3, 2017, the Public Security Bureau decided to withdraw the case, considering that the case was markedly minor, harmless and not considered a crime.
Since then, Shaojiang began to report Li Wenhua to relevant provincial and municipal departments.

Besides Shaojiang, there are also Yin Sangang and Li Shujun in Beiqing River Village who have reported Li Wenhua for a long time.
Li Shujun is the owner of a pig farm in Beiqinghe Village. His pig farm is only one wall away from the heating company. He told the Beijing News that the boiler of the heating company was a second-hand boiler that had been eliminated. In 2013, after the completion of the boiler house, the noise of the forklift truck, the acid smell and the black dust in the air made him feel sick and the pigs in the pig farm died one after another.
According to the relevant environmental protection laws, the protection distance of heating stations should not be less than 300 meters. From 2014, he began to report to the environmental protection department. At that time, Li Wenhua was the head of the heating company. He said he would compensate me for the loss, but he never realized it. On the eighth day of January 2015, Li Shujun visited Shijiazhuang. In his view, this action angered Li Wenhua. Li Wenhua took people directly to demolish my pig farm. When I got home, I found that the factory had become a ruin.
That night, Li Shujun went to Li Jiayuan to find Li Wenhuas theory. As a result, Li Wenhuas relatives and members of the village two committees and more than ten people beat him severely. Li Shujun remembered that someone in the crowd shouted, Kill him with a stick. After being beaten, he and his wife were forced to kneel and apologize to Li Wenhua.
Yin Sangang, 73, was also beaten up for reporting pollution from heating companies. Yin Sangang used to run a small shop in the village, and his home was next to the heating company. In the first year of reporting pollution, the heating company compensated him 7,000 yuan. Later, after the owner changed to Li Wenhua, the pollution was not solved, and the money was not lost.
On May 27, 2015, when Yin Sangang stopped the construction of the heating company, he clashed with Li Wenhuas family members. I was interrupted by two ribs and my son was slightly injured. Subsequently, Yin Sangang was sent to the hospital for treatment. On that day, his house was demolished. Nothing came out.
On May 26, 2016, the North Qinghe Village Committee and Yin Sangang signed a settlement agreement to compensate for the loss of their houses and articles, totaling 60,000 yuan. The agreement also mentions that on May 27, 2015, Li Wenhuas brother, Li Wengang, injured Yin Sangang and his son; on April 13, 2016, Li Guangwei and others, Li Wengangs son, injured Yin Sangang in the county town. Li Wengang compensated for his hospitalization fee and missed work fee of 20,000 yuan.
The Shijiazhuang Discipline Commissions circular mentioned that since 2007, criminal gangs of underworld nature headed by Li Wenhua have repeatedly used violence and threats to assault innocent people and injure seven people.
Several villagers who were beaten by him told reporters in the Beijing News that they had not been dealt with after they had been beaten and alerted the public security organs. Shijiazhuang Discipline Commission also mentioned that the Zanhuang County Public Security Bureau provided direct protection by sheltering connivance in the investigation of nine cases of Li Wenhuas underworld organizations.
