Official Reappointed Despite Blame For “Poisoned Milk” Case

Official Reappointed Despite Blame For “Poisoned Milk” Case
An official who received disciplinary action for his involvement in the 2008 “Chinese milk scandal” has been reappointed as the Graduate School Dean of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences. PhD Liu Daqun received a demerit in March 2009 from Hebei Discipline Inspection Commission due to the case whilst he was appointed as head of Hebei Provincial Department of Agriculture. Numerous incriminated officials have been reappointed since the scandal in which powdered milk tainted with kidney-stone-causing melamine killed six. One netizen asked if such incompetent officials really must be put in charge.

    “One netizen asked if such incompetent officials really must be put in charge.”

    Yes, Yes they do.

    I’m starting to feel there was merit in the system where officials who failed were executed ,or branded ,beaten and banished to the frontier.

    Wow. I would have thought these guys would have been beyond redemption.

    Pretty ballsy to count on the people being ok with this. If I were one of the parents of those poor dead children, I’d be losing my shit right now.

    Completely despicable with the status quo in corruption continuing at the highest levels. The revolving door syndrome is in full swing. The same occurred with officials in the Ministry of Railroads who were demoted and transferred after the Wenzhou high speed rail crash. Several months later, they reappeared in high level positions in the newly “reorganized” Ministry of Railways.
