Authorities Check Out Whistleblower in Shaolin Case

A female worker at the Dengfeng Religious Affairs Bureau has revealed that the department has launched an investigation into Shaolin Abbot Shi Yongxin after self-claimed temple disciple “Shi Zhengyi” sent various incriminating documents implicating him in adultery, fathering illegitimate children and embezzlement to The Paper News However, suspicions were roused after the RAB released news via the official Dengfeng government website stating that “Shi Zhengyi” didn’t exist, with netizens saying that the whistleblower wasn’t important and it’s the Abbot who should be under investigation.

    Ah, that’s the China we love. Seek out the whistle blower to either defame them (and thus whatever they claimed) or to arrest them.

    NEVER look at what the whistle blower was actually claiming since it would be bad for someone with actual power.

      “A female worker at the Dengfeng Religious Affairs Bureau has revealed that the department has launched an investigation into Shaolin Abbot Shi yongxin”

      Do you live in China?
      If you do you would know that the Central Government is cracking down on corruption.
      Also in any country they would investigate or try to find out who the whistle blower is when he used a real/ fake name.

        but they would also investigate the whistle blowers claims….particularly if they backed said claims up with evidence.
        I think after this the importance of who the whistle blower is becomes secondary.
        Which was more important, impeaching Nixon or finding out who “Deepthroat” was?

          Thus, again, Mr. Wiener has provided the reasoning behind my statement.

          Of course whistle blowers give in trouble all over the world. Yet, most developed countries will still need to investigate the claims since the public demands that and the public rarely wants the whistle blowers arrested, it’s usually the corrupt that are trying to save their asses and friends.

          I think (also) that most western countries have laws that protect whistle blowers now right?

          • mr.wiener

            These laws (in the west)are being gnawed away at by the powerful who would protect their own narrow interests.
            The price of liberty is eternal vigilence.

            I hear ya!

          They are investigating him, but also want to know who it is. (Maybe as a eye witness?)
