China Top General Zhang Yang Commits Suicide Following Corruption Investigation

A former member of China’s top military body killed himself while facing a corruption probe, becoming the highest-ranking official to commit suicide during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s five-year-old anti-graft campaign.







General Zhang Yang, 66, hung himself Nov. 23 at his Beijing home while under investigation, the official Xinhua News Agency said on Tuesday. The political affairs chief for China’s 2-million-member military was among a pair of members of the elite Central Military Commission to go missing amid corruption rumors in August as Xi moved to shake-up the army leadership.


According to Bloomberg report, the military’s official mouthpiece, the People’s Liberation Army Daily, criticized Zhang’s death in a commentary on Tuesday. “Zhang Yang committed suicide for fear of punishment! The once-powerful general ended his life in such a shameful way,” the piece said.

There, just mere investigation one commits suicide so as not to be publicly shamed or dishonoured. Here, with full blown conviction you are given a title, political appointment or even made a king.
