INTERNET — General Wei Fenghei, Commander of the Chinese Rocket Force, told reporters Saturday that Xi Jinping has been arrested for corruption and abuse of power after allegedly ordering Chinese troops onto Taiwanese soil. He is currently facing the death penalty, pending a military tribunal.
China’s military brass held a press conference to dispel rumors of martial law. “The People’s Liberation Army has arrested former President Xi for overstepping his powers in command the People’s Army,” Wei said. “Xi’s powers and responsibilities have been passed to his civilian counterparts, and his arrest has in no way transferred power to the military. Rumors of a coup or martial law can be immediately struck down, and there is no threat to the stability of government.”
General Wang Ning, commander of China’s Armed Police, stepped forward and said, “There is no need to be upset. Stay inside and resume business as usual.”
