Gu Kailai 's murder trial ends; verdict later

By John Ruwitch

HEFEI, China | Thu Aug 9, 2012


(Reuters) - China's most politically sensitive trial in three decades ended in just about seven hours on Thursday after the wife of ousted Politburo member Bo Xilai did not contest charges of murdering a British businessman, a court official said.

A verdict will be delivered at a later date.

The official's account of the closed-door hearing in the eastern Chinese city of Hefei signals that Gu Kailai and a family aide are sure to be convicted in a case that has ended her husband's career and rocked China's leadership.

"The trial finished this afternoon and the court adjourned," official Tang Yigan told reporters. "The trial committee will announce the verdict after discussion. The date of the verdict will be announced.

"The accused (Gu) Kailai and Zhang Xiaojun did not raise objections to the facts and the charges of intentional homicide."

Gu's trial is seen by many Chinese as part of a push against Bo, an ambitious populist who made powerful enemies as he campaigned to join the next generation of top central leaders.

Bo was formerly considered a contender for the inner sanctum of power - the party's Politburo Standing Committee - in a once-in-a-decade leadership transition that is currently underway. The new leadership is expected to be unveiled in October.

Gu and her co-accused were charged with poisoning Briton Neil Heywood, a family friend, last year. The official said the court was told Zhang, the family aide, had put poison in a drink of water that Gu then gave to Heywood who was drunk at the time.

His body was found last November in a hotel in Chongqing, the city where Bo was the Communist Party chief.

Gu and Zhang face the death penalty if convicted. But many legal experts expect Gu will be convicted but only sentenced to a lengthy jail term.

when this political scandal rocked the highest powers of china some months ago, one was sometimes apt to conclude that china's aggressive behavior over the west philippine sea (south china sea) against its smaller neighbors was a way to fan chinese nationalism away from its domestic political turmoil.  otherwise, the timing was just odd.

Gu is the youngest of five daughters of General Gu Jingsheng, a prominent revolutionary in the years before the Chinese Communist Party took power.  General Gu held various government positions during early Communist rule but was imprisoned during the Cultural Revolution.  Gu Kailai herself was also punished, being forced to work in a butcher's and a textile factory.

Gu met Bo Xilai in 1984 while on a field trip looking into environmental art in Jin County, Liaoning, where he was the communist party secretary.  The couple have one son, Bo Guagua, who studied at Harrow School and Balliol College, Oxford.  Guagua went on to study at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

Gu Kailai gained her degree in law and then a masters in international politics from Peking University.

She went on to become an accomplished lawyer founding the Kailai law firm in Beijing.  In the course of her career, she was involved in several high-profile cases, and is suggested to have been the first Chinese lawyer to win a civil suit in the United States, where she represented several Dalian-area companies involved in a dispute in Mobile, Alabama.  She is also the author of several books.

In March 2012, Gu became embroiled in a national scandal after her husband's deputy, Wang Lijun, apparently sought refuge at the U.S. consulate in Chengdu. It was rumored that Wang presented evidence of a corruption scandal, whereby Bo sought to impede a corruption investigation against Gu.  Specifically, Wang stated that Gu had been involved in a business dispute with British businessman Neil Heywood, who died in Chongqing under disputed circumstances; Wang alleged he had been poisoned. The Wall Street Journal reported that Wang may have fallen out of favor with Bo for discussing the Heywood case. (wikipedia)

Following the Wang Lijun incident and Bo's removal from key Communist Party posts, Gu was placed under investigation for homicide in Heywood's death.  On 10 April 2012, Gu was detained and "transferred to the judicial authorities" as part of the investigation.  In an unusual move, state media appended her husband's surname in front of her own (rendering her name as Bo Gu Kailai) in an official press release regarding the Heywood case, contrary to the convention for married women in PRC.  The appending of Bo's surname implied that Gu had acquired Singaporean residency, or citizenship of another foreign country, and that as a result "Bo Gu Kailai" appeared on her official documents.  Others suggest that this is because authorities wanted to emphasize that Gu's alleged crimes were linked to misconduct by her husband.

On 26 July 2012, Gu Kailai was formally charged with murdering Heywood, based on what the prosecutor claimed was "irrefutable and substantial" evidence. (wikipedia)
