Comes home to arrest

Beijingchina's most wanted man, lai changxing, was welcomed home by the strong arm of the law saturday, when he was offloaded in handcuffs from an air canada flight from vancouver by two burly police officers wearing white gloves.

For lai, the alleged mastermind of a multibillion dollar smuggling operation in china in the 1990s, it was the end of the road after 12 years on the run.

"Lai's repatriation once again shows that no matter where a criminal suspect flees, he or she cannot evade legal sanctions in the end,"The ministry of public security said.

Lai was deported from canada friday after a federal court judge upheld a deportation order, calling lai"A common criminal. "

Chinese officials here said police informed lai that he was under arrest on his arrival, read him his rights including the right to hire lawyers and took him into custody.Local time.

Lv rushun, a taiwanese woman on the flight told the star that lai had been accompanied by"Three or four"Canadian security personnel, and kept in the very last row of the plane.

"Not everyone on the flight knew who he was,"She smiled. "But i did. "

It was testament to the fact that lai is still Louis Vuitton Handbags Outlet a legend here.

But under the current circumstances he appeared small and not at all like a man who once shook the very foundations of the powerful communist party.

But he did, allegedly by buying off local, provincial and even central government politicians with liquor, money and women in whatever quantities were needed to keep his operations running smoothly.

And the operations did, so smoothly that the government later wrote in a detailed report that lai's enterprises had hauled in $6.8 billion in goods and evaded $3.8 billion in taxes before he bolted in 1999, landing in Canada with his wife and two children on tourist visas.

The ministry said saturday that lai's massive operations had"Seriously disrupted china's economic order Louis Vuitton Men Handbags and created huge economic losses for the nation. "

Chinese media however were careful over the weekend to portray lai's enterprise as mainly a local operation, contained in the southern chinese city of xiamen aided and abetted by bad, local officials there.

In truth, lai's influence reached into powerful provincial government circles and indeed right into zhongnanhai, the central government's headquarters in beijing.

No mention was made in saturday news reports, for example, that lai's smuggling operations would never have succeeded were it not for the backing of li jizhou, then viceminister of public security the man who was actually supposed to be leading the government's campaign to stop smuggling across the country.

But lai, an illiterate peasant with a grade http://www.austherm.com.au/ three education, persuaded li to help him.

The viceminister was later given the death penalty, but his sentence was eventually commuted to life.

Thirteen others were also given death sentences, at least eight of whom have been executed.

Lai's eventual trial, which is not expected to be"Open"In any real sense since chinese courts rarely allow people to attend, will almost certainly be held up as a showcase for the government's ongoing battle against corruption.

In fact, the communist party's global times newspaper declared saturday that lai's repatriation to face justice,"Proves the chinese government's strong resolution to combating corruption. "

Still, government corruption is endemic in china.

Even as people were reading about lai's repatriation this week, news landed that a former vice chairman of china mobile, one of the country's biggest stateowed telecommunications companies, was sentenced to death for pocketing more than $1 million in bribes.

In fact the Louis Vuitton Australia government's own recently released figures show that more than 28, 700 government officials were convicted of wrongdoing in 2010 with close to 6, 000 of those sentenced to more than five years in prison.
