On June 14, upstream journalists verified from multiple sources that Shen Jian, the 64-year-old former chairman of the Nanjing Municipal Consultative Conference, committed suicide by taking poison in his car on June 2, and his body was cremated on June 13. Officials have not yet disclosed the cause of Shen Jians suicide.
A year and a half ago in January 2018, Shen Jian retired from the chairmanship of the Nanjing Municipal Consultative Conference. He was a member of the Standing Committee of the Nanjing Municipal Party Committee and a standing vice mayor, in charge of economic work.
According to public data, Shen Jian was born in August 1954 and worked as a worker in a school-run factory of Liaoyuan Middle School in Nanjing in 1970. After that, he joined Baihua Photography and Photography Society as a worker and was promoted to Deputy director. Until his retirement in 2018, Shen Jian spent 48 years in Nanjing.
Upstream journalists found that Shen Jian had undergraduate studies in economics and management at the Correspondence College of the Central Party School during his tenure as Deputy Secretary of the Qinhuai District Committee of Nanjing. In 1992, after graduating from the Central Party School, Shen Jian was transferred to the Standing Committee of Xuanwu District of Nanjing and vice-director of Nanjing Price Bureau.
In March 1997, Shen Jian served as Deputy Secretary-General and Chief Executive Officer of Nanjing Municipal Government. He also served as Chairman of the National Exhibition Center for six years.
In 2008, Shen Jian was appointed Standing Committee and Executive Vice Mayor of Nanjing Municipal Committee. He was in charge of development and reform, major project construction, finance, state-owned assets management, human resources, statistics, land and other work. During this period, Shen Jian worked with Ji Jianye, the former mayor of Nanjing, who had already lost his horse. It is worth noting that Ji Jianye was in charge of both financial and state-owned assets management at that time, and there were many intersections with Shen Jian.
According to official reports, on January 10, 2013, the first session of the 13th Committee of the CPPCC Nanjing Municipal Committee closed, and Shen Jian was elected Chairman of the 13th Committee of the CPPCC Nanjing Municipal Committee.
In January 2018, Shen Jian, on behalf of the Standing Committee of the 13th Nanjing Municipal Committee of the CPPCC, stated at the first meeting of the 14th Nanjing Municipal Committee that during his five-year tenure, the CPPCC had received 3962 proposals and 3316 proposals for filing. By the end of 2017, all proposals for filing had been completed.
According to Liu Yians speech at the closing meeting of the 14th session of the CPPCC, published on the official website of the Nanjing Municipal Consultative Conference, the new chairman of the CPPCC, Liu Yian, said that under the chairmanship of Chairman Shen Jian, the 13th CPPCC was one of the most innovative, active and promising periods in the work of the CPPCC.
In the same month, Shen Jian, 63, retired.
On January 8 this year, the second meeting of the 14th Nanjing Committee of the CPPCC was held at Zhongshan Hotel. The chairmen of the CPPCC, Zhang Ye, Wang Zhengsheng, Miao Helin and Shen Jian, were invited to attend the opening meeting. This is the last time Shen Jian has appeared in official reports so far.
Several sources confirmed to upstream journalists that Shen Jian drove alone to the Sun Palace in Nanjing on June 2, then took poison in his car. By June 8, Shen Jian was found dead and his body cremated on June 13.
So far, the official has not disclosed the cause of Shen Jians suicide by taking drugs.
Ji Jianye was sentenced to 15 yearsimprisonment
[Ji Jianye was sentenced to 15 yearsimprisonment in the first instance] According to the official microblog of Yantai Intermediate Court, Ji Jianye was convicted of bribery, sentenced to 15 years imprisonment and confiscated 2 million yuan of personal property. The defendant, Ji Jianye, said in court that he was subject to the judgment and would not appeal. The presiding judge declared the court closed and brought the defendant, Ji Jianye, out of court.
Media: Ji Jianyes fall involves many relatives and chief judges.
Speaking of the relatives of Ji Jianye, the former mayor of Nanjing, we are most familiar with his father-in-law, Gao Dezheng. After Ji Jianyes fall, Gao Dezheng, former executive vice governor of Jiangsu Province, reported his partner Yang Weize in Nanjing during the season in real name. Later, Gao himself denounced the rumor publicly. However, Mayor Ji did make many of his relatives feel bad after his fall. Some media reported that his daughter was being tried.
Miao Ruilin, Vice Governor of Jiangsu Province, was replaced by Ji Jianye and his partner Yang Weize.
In October 2013, Ji Jianye, then mayor of Nanjing, fell into disillusionment. More than a month later, Miu Ruilin, then vice governor of Jiangsu Province, filled the post of mayor of Nanjing by fire fighting, and in early 2018, he was re-appointed as vice governor of Jiangsu Province. In his first speech as acting mayor, he promised: If someone asks for convenience under my banner, please refuse and tell me. Its my responsibility.
