A few days ago, Wei Yuehui, former member and vice-director of the Liaoning Provincial Finance Department, who was prosecuted by the Procuratorate of Anshan City, Liaoning Province, was sentenced by the Intermediate Court of Anshan City in the case of bribery and abuse of power. Wei Yuehui, the defendant, was sentenced to eleven yearsimprisonment for bribery at first instance, five years for abuse of power, and fifteen years imprisonment for several crimes. Wei Yuehui pleaded guilty in court and did not appeal.
From October 2013 to April 2017, when Wei Yuehui was a member and deputy director of the Party Leadership Group of Liaoning Provincial Finance Department, why did he fall from the peak of his career to the bottom of his life in just over three years? Through his corruption track, it is not difficult to see that he regarded his authority as a tool for making money, and cast a net in the jurisdiction, who refused to refuse and accepted bribes. The breadth is astonishing.
1.103 bribery cases were reported almost all over the province.
Wei Yuehui has been working in Liaoning Provincial Department of Finance since August 1983. He has been working in Liaoning Provincial Department of Finance since August 1983. He has served as deputy director of Budget Department of Liaoning Provincial Department of Finance, deputy director of Budget Department, director of Liaoning Provincial Budget Compilation Audit Center (at the official level, concurrently deputy director of Budget Department), Liaoning Province. Director of Budget Department of Finance Department, Member of Party Group and Deputy Director of Liaoning Provincial Finance Department.
Wei Yuehuis long-term budget office is an important department of Liaoning Provincial Department of Finance. One of the biggest powers is the allocation of financial transfer payment subsidy indicators for cities and counties. Municipal, county governments and financial departments especially hope that the Finance Department can allocate more financial transfer payment subsidies, and that the Budget Office can give its own region care and inclination in the allocation of funds. Wei Yuehui just seized the mentality of grassroots people who want more financial support and tried to make money for himself. If you give me money, I will give you more funds. He just took his position and authority as a tool to make money. He thought he was unconscious and cast a net all over the province.
The court found that Wei Yuehui, during his long term tenure as a budget clerk, deputy director and deputy director of Liaoning Provincial Finance Department, took advantage of his position to seek benefits for others, made use of the convenience conditions formed by his authority and status, and through the actions of other state functionaries in his post, obtained unfair benefits for the trustee and illegally collected them. The total amount of RMB 87.064 million, US$0.7 million, photographic equipment 15 pieces, jade raw stone 3 pieces, hand string 1 piece and watch 1 piece sent by 103 persons is 9.72 million yuan.
The 64 files and 103 bribery cases show that in order to get the support of the provincial finance department in settlement matters and subsidies from superiors, the municipalities concerned by Tuo Wei Yuehui almost cover the whole province of Liaoning.
For example, on the eve of the Spring Festival in 2001, Wei Yuehui went to a training center in Liaoning Province to hold a provincial financial final accounts meeting. During the meeting, Wanmou, director of the citys finance bureau, came to Wei Yuehuis room and said to Wei Yuehui, To celebrate the New Year, our citys Finance Bureau is not neglected by you. I thank you very much. There is some money in it that I personally mean. I hope you will continue to take care of me. Wei Yuehui just politely accepted 200,000 yuan. On the eve of the Spring Festival next year, Wei Yuehui went to the training center of the city to hold the provincial financial final accounts meeting. Wanmou came to Wei Yuehuis room again to express his desire for more financial support (as an underdeveloped area of the city, he wanted more funds at that time). Wei Yuehui agreed to receive 200,000 yuan again and nodded his head to thank him.
2. Photography hobby becomes the knocking brick of elegant bribery
Wei Yuehui usually likes photography, which has become an important breakthrough in bribing him in cities and counties. In the case of Wei Yuehuis bribery, there are 15 cases of inviting someone to bribe him with high-end photographic equipment in order to give him what he likes. And he also refused to refuse to come, according to all the receipts.
There is a photographic equipment store near Wei Yuehuis house. When hes OK, he often hangs out in this photographic equipment store. Once, he saw a Lycra S2 camera fuselage and a 70mm lens in the store. The two things together were 179,000 yuan. After the middle of the picture, Wei Yuehui called Bumou, then the head of Budget Section of Liaoning Municipal Finance Bureau, and said, I like a camera, the price is about 180,000 yuan. Can you help me buy it?Bumou in order to make a good relationship with Wei Yuehui, cultivate good feelings, get more care in personal work performance and municipal finance, and hope that Wei Yuehui will have the opportunity to praise him more in front of his leadership, so that he can get more promotion opportunities, and immediately agreed to Wei Yuehuis request. Before long, Bumou came to the photographic equipment store with cash and bought the camera and lens in Wei Yuehuis camera. In addition, in 2007, Bumou also sent Wei Yuehui a total of 170,000 yuan six times, as well as Lycra S2 camera lens, Lycra D-LUX3 camera.
One day in November 2015, Li Mou, the leader of a research unit in Liaoning Province, called Wei Yuehui and said he wanted to send him a Nikon camera. Wei Yuehui pretended to push on. Finally, he could not resist the temptation and agreed to accept it. One day in May 2016, Li Mou went downstairs to Wei Yuehuis apartment and gave Wei Yuehui a Nikon 800mm camera lens and a Nikon D5 camera. He hoped that Wei Yuehui would support a blueberry research project and help the project get financial support. Wei Yuehui immediately expressed support for his project.
Chang Mou, the leader of the Standing Committee of the Peoples Congress of a district under the jurisdiction of a city in Liaoning Province, was the chairman of the Photographers Association of the district. Once, he met Wei Yuehui in a photographic equipment Monopoly store. Changmou asked Wei Yuehui to say hello to the Finance Bureau of his city to help them win some funds for the activities of the Photographers Association. Wei Yuehui immediately agreed and telephoned the director of the citys finance bureau. In 2012, the two met again in a photographic equipment store. Chang told Wei Yuehui that the funds of their photographersassociation had been set aside. In order to thank Wei Yuehui for his help in applying for financial funds, in 2013, Changmou went to the gate of Wei Yuehuis residential area and gave Wei Yuehui a Nikon 80-400 camera lens worth 10,000 yuan.
Gu Mou, Director of Finance Bureau of a county in Liaoning Province, is also a photography enthusiast. He not only gives Wei Yuehui 20,000 to 30,000 yuan in cash every year, but also accompanies Wei Yuehui to play mahjong and travel photography many times. Before the Spring Festival of 2010, Wei Yuehui called Gumou and asked him to join him in a trip to Xuexiang, Heilongjiang Province. On the second day of the first lunar month, they drove to Xuexiang together after gathering in Mudanjiang. Gumou provided Wei Yuehui with 20,000 yuan for tourism photography in Xuexiang. From 2010 to 2013, Gumou, together with Changmou and Wei Yuehui, went to Alshan, Guizhou, Huangshan, Changbai Mountain in Jilin, Xuexiang in Heilongjiang, Bashang in Hebei and Xinjiang for tourism photography. Each time, they settled the expenses for Wei Yuehui and his wife and son, totaling about 180,000 yuan.
However, Wei Yuehui was also afraid to accept so many photographic equipment too eye-catching, worried about the disclosure of things, coupled with the leadership of the office also reminded him to pay attention to the impact, out of fear of being investigated and other reasons, in 2015, Wei Yuehui returned photographic equipment worth more than 510,000 yuan purchased by Huang Mou of Liaoning Municipal Finance Bureau.
3. Wives and nannies are also paid for.
In addition to satisfying personal interests and hobbies, Wei Yuehui used his powers to the utmost. Even his wife and even his parentsfamily paid for the nanny, which was amazing.
From the beginning of 1996 to the end of 2006, Wei Yuehui arranged Hongmou, the Finance Bureau of a county in Liaoning Province, to find two nannies for his parents to take care of their lives. Hong Mou soon found a little girl to take care of her mother in the local area. Not long after, Hongmou found another nanny to take care of his father. Hongmou not only gave Wei Yuehui 75,000 yuan nine times, but also took the initiative to pay 80,000 yuan for the two nannies. Of course, the county will get some more financial subsidies every year than last year.
In the first half of 2003, Wanmou telephoned Wei Yuehui and said that there was a private clinic that was very effective in treating colitis in the area, and he would be taken to see a doctor. Inspection fees, treatment fees and medication fees totaled more than 20,000 yuan, all of which were paid by Wanmou. The purpose was to win more financial support.
In July and August 2007, Wei Yuehui called Bumou and said that his wife was going to take more than 50 employees of her beauty salon to Bumous training center to have a party and let them arrange for it. After a warm reception, Bumou let the training center handle the accommodation and meal expenses totalling 57,000 yuan, and also paid 57,000 yuan for Wei Yuehuis wife.
In August 2011, Wei Yuehuis father was hospitalized in the Third Hospital of Shenyang. Qiao Mou, a Financial Bureau of Liaoning Province, said he would like to come to console him. Wei Yuehui refused a few words and told Qiaomou his fathers address in hospital, ward and fathers name. Qiao visited the hospital specially. Although Wei Yuehui was absent at that time, Qiao left 20,000 yuan after he showed his identity.
In November 2011, when Gong Mou, then director of the Finance Bureau of a county in Liaoning Province, learned the news of Wei Yuehuis fathers death, he drove from the county to Shenyang to offer condolences and left US$5,000. Wei Yuehui nodded his head and thanked him. Chang Mou also came to mourn, called Wei Yuehui to an empty place, stuffed an envelope containing 20,000 yuan of cash into his pocket and left.
4. Help people get promotion and employment as soon as they make a phone call
In 2000, Bumou, director of Finance Bureau of a county-level city in Liaoning Province, wanted to be transferred from the bureau to the prefecture-level city finance bureau as head of budget section. He asked Wei Yuehui to help ease the relationship. He called Wei Yuehui and said that the position of head of budget section of the City Finance Bureau was vacant. He wanted to transfer to this post. He hoped that Wei Yuehui would greet Wanmou, then director of the bureau. Wei Yuehui agreed without hesitation. He took advantage of the position of Deputy Director of Budget Department of the Provincial Finance Department to call Wanmou and recommend Bumou. In October of the same year, Bumou was transferred to the Budget Section of the Municipal Finance Bureau as the Chief of the Section. In order to express gratitude, Bumou sent Wei Yuehui 150,000 yuan in March 2001.
In 2004, Bumou learned that there was a vacancy in the post of Deputy Director of the Bureau. He hoped Wei Yuehui would help to recommend himself again. Wei Yuehui also made use of his position as Deputy Director of Budget Department of the Provincial Finance Department to call Wanmou and recommend Bumou. In November of the same year, Bumou was appointed Deputy Director of the Finance Bureau of the city. Wei Yuehui received 150,000 yuan thank you fee from Bumou again.
In early 2010, Qi Mou, then head of the budget unit of a County Finance Bureau in Liaoning Province, came to Wei Yuehuis office in order to be promoted to deputy director of the county finance bureau. She said that there was a deputy director vacant in the bureau. She wanted to try and see if Wei Yuehui could call the Secretary of the County Finance Bureau and help her to make a good call. Wei Yuehui immediately promised to help. Later, Wei Yuehui called the Secretary of the county Party committee and recommended Qimou. The secretary said Qimou was good and would consider it. At the end of 2010, Qi told Wei Yuehui that she had been promoted to deputy director of the Finance Bureau as she wished. For this reason, Wei Yuehui received a thank you fee of 40,000 yuan from Qi Mou in early 2011.
In 2010, Shang Mou, director of a unit directly under Liaoning Province, asked Wei Yuehui to help his nephew find a job related to finance in Shenyang. Wei Yuehui readily agreed. Afterwards, Wei Yuehui called Wen Mou, the leader of the Finance Bureau of a city in Liaoning Province, asking him to help coordinate the matter. Wen greeted the chairman of the citys bank. Finally, Shangs nephew joined Shenyang Branch of the citys bank. In order to express his gratitude to Wei Yuehui, Shang Mou gave him 50,000 yuan in cash for the Spring Festival of 2011.
In April this year, Wei Yuehui was convicted of several crimes and sentenced to 15 yearsimprisonment according to law for bribery and abuse of power. After the court sentenced him, Wei Yuehui confessed in tears that he had hurt himself by his dream of making money. Unfortunately, his dream of making money woke up too late.
_Public prosecutors say cases
One thought of heaven, one thought of hell
Liu Bo, Assistant Procurator of Public Prosecution Department of Anshan Procuratorate, Liaoning Province
Looking through Wei Yuehuis files, we can see that in 1983, 19-year-old Wei Yuehui went to Liaoning Provincial Finance Department to work. Although he only had a diploma in technical secondary school, he grew from an ordinary staff member of the Budget Office to a chief section member, and then to the head of the office. In 2013, Wei Yuehui became a member of the Party and deputy director of the Provincial Finance Department. From 1983 to 2013, Wei Yuehui worked in the Budget Office of Liaoning Provincial Finance Department for 30 years. From an ordinary youth of humble origin and no higher education to a leading cadre at the deputy office level, it is the leadership of the organization that makes him transcend his own ordinary; it is the cultivation of the organization that helps him to make up for his shortcomings; it is the trust of the organization that gives him great power.
However, we regret to see that in the facts of the crime charged in the indictment, Wei Yuehui began to use his power as his own when he moved to a leading position in 1993, from soliciting bribes and accepting bribes to filling his pockets, from promoting otherspositions, adjusting his work to helping enterprises obtain financial subsidies; from receiving ordinary purchases. When he asked for imported high-end cameras and watches, Wei Yuehui extended a pair of big hands with the word greed to his subordinate departments, brothers and business owners one after another, writing his life in the opposite direction step by step.
In addition to soliciting bribes and accepting bribes, Wei Yuehui abused his power and deeply failed the trust of the organization and the trust of the people. In 2015, the state decided to subsidize agricultural products processing enterprises with investment of more than 1 billion yuan, with the intention of helping Liaonings agricultural industrialization development and creating a good business environment. As the deputy director in charge of the provincial finance department, Wei Yuehui insisted on the final audit by the original audit institution, knowing that there were problems in a companys project and the audit conclusion was untrue. On this basis, he gave a financial subsidy to a company, which led to the deception of more than 165 million yuan of subsidized funds for the national agricultural product processing project and finally made it to the state. Its a huge loss. From secondary school graduates to senior officials, Wei Yuehui has completed the magnificent turn of self-worth. However, from high officials to prisoners, Wei Yuehui experienced the taste of life of one step at a time, everything is empty. Fundamentally speaking, he did not treat power correctly and did not realize that the surname of power was public. He must use power impartially and legally. It is hoped that this case can warn Party members and cadres to follow the example of Wei Yuehuis case, abide by discipline and law, always maintain loyalty, cleanliness and assume the political essence, and not fail to live up to the heavy trust of the Party and the people, and repeat the mistakes of Wei Yuehui people.
