Incredible Chinese murder revelations and cyber attack on US website of Chinese dissidents
Incredible revelations of blowing up a plane and force-feeding cyanide are among the reports being told regarding the activities of people surrounding the death of english businessman Neil Heywood last year.
Charges reported in the UK’s Daily Mail state that Chinese censors wanted to silence more news from the U.S.-based Boxun website which seems to be run by Chinese dissidents. They apparently succeeded on Friday with an attack that froze the website for hours and forced the dissidents to find another internet hosting service just to get back online. The website Boxun.com, which is covering the political scandal surrounding China’s Bo Xilai, has become the latest victim of cyber attacks. The site was brought down for several hours on Friday.
Speculation over who may have been behind the attack has China complaining that it also is coming under increasing attack from hackers, reports the BBC. Regardless of who, it seems the Chinese dissidents were the first reporting that Heywood was killed in his hotel room after agreeing to syphon almost £1 billion out of the country for the 54-year-old wife of rising Chinese politician Bo Xilai. Heywood had apparently threatened to expose the plan by Gu Kailai to move money abroad.
Other revelations include a report from the Mirror that Barack Obama had been informed of Heywood’s murder in China a day before Foreign Secretary William Hague had been informed. Media considered it “…an alarming lapse of diplomatic protocol…” that the US president knew about Heywood before Hague.
From another story in the Daily Mail claims were also made known that murder suspect Gu Kailai ordered a plane with 112 people onboard to be blown up because it carried the wife of a political opponent followed by accusations that Chinese officials were accused of the cover up following the crash.
Heywood had become fearful, according to a previous report in Tothecenter, and told a friend before his death of that concern.
