On the morning of July 12, the State Supervisory Committee of the Central Discipline Commission informed that Zhao Hongshun, a former member and deputy director of the State Tobacco Monopoly Bureau, had been expelled from the Party and public office for serious violations of discipline and law.
Zhao Hongshun is the only middle-level official in the tobacco system. Moreover, he was notified on February 16 this year for censorship and investigation. He was the first executive cadre to fall after the Spring Festival on February 5 this year.
Zhao Hongshun mentioned in his double-opening briefing that he had seriously damaged the political ecology of the tobacco system. The political and ecological problems of the tobacco system have been mentioned many times before, with more than one province experiencing nest cases. As far as the whole system is concerned, it has been pointed out by the Central Inspection Group that there are some problems such as extravagance and waste.
Alleged to have seriously damaged the political ecology of the tobacco system
Zhao Hongshun has been working in the tobacco system since November 1989. He worked in the tobacco system for 29 years until he was censored and investigated at the beginning of this year.
Zhao Hongshun started as a clerk in the office of the National Tobacco Monopoly Bureau, and later spent most of his official career in the National Tobacco Monopoly Bureau. During the period from November 1994 to October 1996, he went to Qinhuangdao Tobacco Branch of Hebei Province as deputy manager. From October 2003 to July 2006, he served as Deputy Secretary, Deputy Director and Deputy General Manager of the Party Group of Anhui Tobacco Monopoly Bureau (Company).

Tobacco Kingdom Yunnan Fawen Regulates Heavy Price Tobacco
Zhao Hongshun was accused of seriously destroying the political ecology of the tobacco system. For a long time, many top tobacco system leaders have fallen behind. The relevant bulletins mentioned their destruction to the political ecology of the local tobacco system. This year, more attention has been paid to Yunnan Province, which is known as the kingdom of tobacco in the tobacco industry.
In January this year, Yu Yundong, the former secretary, director and general manager of the Party Group of Yunnan Tobacco Monopoly Bureau (Company), was sentenced to 13 yearsimprisonment and a fine of 2.3 million yuan for committing the crime of bribery, abuse of power and illegal profit-making for relatives and friends.
China Discipline Inspection and Supervision Daily disclosed on July 3 that Yu Yundong relied on tobacco to eat cigarettes and instructed his subordinates to collect 64381 high-grade cigarettes for personal enjoyment free of charge and send them to the staff of relevant departments; without fulfilling the relevant approval procedures, he unauthorized decision to transfer 32 people from the tobacco system to Yang Mou Mou Mou Mou Mou Mou and others; and businessman Yuan Mou Mou Mou Mou Mou. Undertake Yunnan tobacco insurance consulting and brokerage services to provide assistance, receive 2.35 million yuan in cash from Yuanmou and others; arrange to purchase 500,000 yuan of shopping cards with public funds from Jingmou, a subordinate, and withdraw 200,000 yuan in cash from Haitian Hotel for personal gifts and expenses.
The article mentions that, for a long time, the tobacco system has been a wealth center of capital-intensive, resource-rich and asset-gathering under the management system of government-enterprise integration, unified leadership, vertical management and monopoly. The main leaders of enterprises integrate party affairs, government affairs and enterprise affairs. It is difficult to centralize power, supervise and corrupt. Failure is prone to occur frequently.
In addition, the political circle noted that in January this year, Li Tianfei, a member of the Party group and deputy general manager of Yunnan Zhongyan Industry Co., Ltd., was expelled from the party. He has served as director, member of the Party Committee and executive vice president of Hongta Tobacco (Group) Co., Ltd.
On July 10, the website of the State Supervisory Committee of the Central Discipline Commission published an article saying that a few days ago, Yunnan Province issued a circular on the investigation and rectification of the four winds behind the high-priced cigarettes, making it clear that provincial departments should make a thorough analysis of whether there are leading cadres in their departments who use the power of high-grade cigarettes monopoly to seek personal benefits. To investigate whether there are sky-high price cigarettes in the local tobacco market, whether there are leading cadres who use the power of high-grade cigarette monopoly for personal gain, whether there are public officials who operate high-grade cigarettes in violation of regulations or use their official influence to provide convenience for relatives and others to operate high-grade cigarettes, and so on. Check.
Two directors run away for a lifetime
Yunnan Province is not the only leader of the tobacco system.
In December 2016, Wang Zhifu, former Party Secretary and Director of Liaoning Tobacco Monopoly Bureau, was double-opened. The circular said that he used his powers and powers to seek profits for the business activities of a particular party concerned, to receive property and property from subordinate units, and to have improper sexual relations with others.
Wang Zhifu had previously served in Henan tobacco system for a long time. He was Vice General Manager and Party Member of Henan Tobacco Monopoly Bureau. He was transferred to Liaoning only in May 2015.
Henans tobacco system was also deeply corrupt. In early 2012, Li Zhongkai, director of Planning Department of Henan Tobacco Monopoly Bureau, was arrested, and Zheng Jianmin, director of Henan Tobacco Monopoly Bureau, was investigated. Then, on March 30, Zhang Xiangqiu, director of Shangqiu Tobacco Monopoly Bureau, committed suicide by jumping from a building. On March 31, 2014, Zheng Jianmin, director of the provincial tobacco monopoly bureau, was sentenced to life imprisonment for bribery.
Zheng Jianmin was promoted to director of Henan Tobacco Monopoly Bureau in 2003. Wang Zhifu was vice general manager and member of the Party team of Henan Tobacco Monopoly Bureau in the same year. He was a subordinate of Zheng Jianmin and worked together for nine years.
It is worth mentioning that Zheng Jianmin was promoted to the post of Director-General because his predecessor Jiang Jifang fled during his term of office. In April 2002, Jiang Jifang, who was attending the training of office-level cadres at the Party School of the National Tobacco Monopoly Bureau, suddenly interrupted his study and returned to Zhengzhou. Then he left Shanghai for the United States. Before Jiang Jifang fled, he had arranged for his wife and children to settle in the United States. Later, Jiang Jifangs name was given the Red Command.
The political circle saw that in August 2016, the Party Group of the State Tobacco Bureau of the Communist Party of China issued a circular on the special inspection and rectification of the Second Inspection Group of the Central Committee. It was mentioned in the period that we should learn from the lessons of promotion with illness and succession with corruption of either of the two leaders of Henan Provincial Bureau, insist on all proposals must be tried for the cadre files of the object of investigation, report on individual related matters all proposals must be checked, opinions of discipline inspection organs all proposals must be listened to, and report all proposals must be investigated for the legal person by letters and visits with specific clues. Every referee must be tried and promotion with illness should be resolutely prevented.
Fifty-three Beijing offices were cleaned up after being accused of extravagance and waste
Hunan Province has also been caught in corruption cases in the tobacco system. At the end of 2013, Zhou Changgong, the former general manager of Hunan Zhongtobacco Industry Company, was investigated. He served as director of Hunan Tobacco Monopoly Bureau in September 1999, and retired as general manager of Hunan Zhongtobacco Industry Company in 2013. He held power in Hunan Tobacco System for 14 years.
The political circle noted that the Hengyang Peoples Procuratorates report on its work in 2014 disclosed that in 2013, the hospital filed 14 cases against Hunans tobacco system. Relevant prosecutors have designated corruption in Hunans tobacco system as a series of bribery crimes.
It can be seen that the political ecology of the tobacco system has become the focus several times, and this year Zhao Hongshun, who lost his horse, has become the highest ranking official in the tobacco system.
It is worth mentioning that in 2016, the tobacco system centrally cleaned up 53 offices in Beijing. From February 29 to April 30, 2016, the Second Inspection Group of the Central Committee made a special inspection of the Party Group of the State Tobacco Monopoly Bureau. On June 3, the Central Inspection Group gave feedback to the Party Group of the National Tobacco Monopoly Bureau, noting that the problem of extravagance and waste of public funds for eating, drinking and playing has changed from light to dark. The Beijing Office and the training center are prominent. Moreover, the Central Inspection Group pointed out that 53 offices in Beijing, most of which are located in high-end residential areas, office buildings and villas groups.
According to the disclosure at that time, all members of the Party group of the State Tobacco Monopoly Bureau conducted a surprise inspection on the Beijing Office of Heilongjiang Tobacco Bureau. It was found that the Beijing Office was located in a financial family community. Four houses were used as office buildings, totaling 968 square meters, with eight parking spaces, one for office, and three sets of billiard tables, mahjong tables and tea. Entertainment facilities unrelated to work, such as rooms.
Former Office of Heilongjiang Tobacco Bureau (Company) in Beijing
As of July 31, 2016, all 53 Beijing offices had been abolished. Moreover, in August of that year, Qian Jiang, secretary, director and general manager of the Party Group of Hebei Tobacco Bureau (Company), was urged to talk. The reason is that in August 2012, Hebei Tobacco Bureau (company) leased a villa in the process of renting office buildings in Beijing. It only made a simple price comparison beforehand and did not carry out market research seriously, which directly led to high prices.
