Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
This case is like a movie in the making, where a poor farm girl sell eggs from a stand on the road side. But through hard work, will power, and luck she’s positioned herself to get into the big time coal and railway businesses. She however, along the way is swayed and influenced by wealthy wolves who ends up corrupting her. As we are aware once one fall, all start to crumble. We are not, or at least I’m not going to think that this big time business woman was naïve nor gullible. When you roll those greed dice with every win there will be lost. Unfortunately, the country of seem to less tolerate of white-collar females criminals often giving them the death penalty.
Today’s CrimeDiva, Ding Yuxin, 58, of Beijing, a well-known female millionaire pleaded guilty in court to charges of bribery and illegal business activities.
According to records, Ms. Yuxin, admitted to giving the former railways minister Liu Zhijun a total of 49 million yuan ($8 million) to help him secure higher level government position and help free one of his subordinates. Ms. Yuxin testified that Mr. Zhijun had helped her make a great deal of money and in return, she did anything he asked. Ms. Yuxin gave more that 40 million yuan to Fan Zengyu, a director from the Poverty Alleviation and Development Office of the State Council. In exchange, Mr. Zengyu granted her charity awards and helped clean-up her company’s public image in an effort to avoid inspections from authorities. She also helped 23 companies secure 57 railway construction contracts worth over 185.8 billion yuan where she and her accomplices profited over 3 billion yuan from kickbacks.
According to the records, Ms. Yuxin, had little education and a humble beginning as an egg vendor, but over three decades built a business empire with interests in coal as well as China’s high-speed rail system. It is said that her success came from her close ties with the former railways minister and was destroyed by the very man who brought her immense wealth and that this is a pattern in which business people work in partnership with officials in exchange of money and power they mutually benefit from the collaboration, but pose a greater threat to the system.
The records indicates that an official inquiry was launched after an audit found a state agency had paid nearly 100 million yuan to her company.[Red flag] In China, white-collar crimes are punishable by death as Mr. Zhiyun was sentenced, however with a two-year reprieve after a high-profile trial this summer. He was convicted of taking bribes totaling 64.6 million yuan.
It is reported that Ms. Yuxin was ill and had two surgeries. It is possible she will get the death sentence as they are known to give females in high-profile cases such as this one. Don’t be surprised if one day you see a movies about this.
