“Tibet Society has a special place in the hearts of HH the Dalai Lama & the Tibetan people”

http://www.tibetsociety.com @tibetsociety #TibetSociety www.keeptibetalive.com

“Tibet Society has a special place in the hearts of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people. We wish them the very best.” 

We are honoured and humbled by these kind words written by Dr. Lobsang Sangay, the Sikyong, the democratically elected head of the Tibetan people and political successor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Tibet Society was founded shortly after the invasion and is the world’s oldest established Tibet support group. Over those years we have campaigned hard for Tibet, engaging with governments and working internationally, as well as helping many Tibetan individuals both here in the UK and abroad. With your help Tibet Society has ambitious plans to deliver a great deal over the next 12 months, but we need your support.

Tibet Society have managed to ensure the Tibetan people’s demands for human rights and freedom has resonated in Westminster. As Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet we work closely with MPs who have a special interest in Tibet and help devise strategies to keep Tibet on the political agenda. This is the “gateway to government” for all the Tibetan organisations in the UK and it has a genuinely international significance for the Tibetan movement. We are committed to working closely with other organisations both in the UK and internationally for Tibet.

The new APPGT has two committed co-chairs and we will be seeking to bring on board more MPs from the 2017 intake. We are arranging meetings for Tibetans to give testimonies to MPs and Foreign Office officials and we are developing our MP exchange programme which fosters relations between the British and Tibetan exiled parliaments. Such visits not only strengthen support for Tibet in Westminster but also help the exiled government with developing democratic processes.

However, the struggle for freedom in Tibet is now in a crucial phase. Tibetans in Tibet are giving their very lives to protest against China’s continuing repressive policies. China’s crackdown on basic rights and freedoms in Tibet continues unabated. Now, China exercises huge economic global influence and invests in soft power initiatives including the Chinese Embassy arranging visits from the Tibetan Autonomous Region to the UK. We need your support to help us to continue to campaign for Tibet and amplify the authentic voices of real Tibetan people.

All this work, and more, would not be possible without your support. Please help us to continue this vital work, which not only ensures that Tibet remains on the political agenda but ensures that Tibetan voices calling for freedom are heard in the UK and across the world.

Unfortunately, Tibet Society cannot qualify for charitable status because our core aims, such as supporting self-determination for Tibetans, lobbying governments, and protesting about human rights abuses, are classified as political by the Charity Commission. That shuts off many potential sources of income and makes us much more dependant than other Tibet groups on our members and supporters for funding.

2017 Endorsement

Remember Tibet in your will …

By coincidence I came across an old appeal, which probably comes from the 1960s, the telephone number is “VICtoria 4342”!

Tibet Society 1960s 533x800

This reminder of time passing has prompted me to ask you to consider making provision in your will for a bequest to Tibet Society. The need for financial help has never been greater. Tibet has suffered enormously since the annexation of the country by the Chinese government in 1959, when the Dalai Lama was forced to flee across the border into India, where he remains to this day.

Sadly, there seems to be no day in sight when our help and campaigning will not be needed so any legacies for the future are an important part of our income stream.

Please read the material below and then set up a legacy.

May I thank you on behalf of Tibetans everywhere.

Making a bequest in your will to Tibet Society

To be legally valid, a bequest form must be included in the body of your will or as a codicil.  You may wish to use a solicitor to ensure that all the legal formalities are correctly followed. Knowing that your will is valid and expresses your exact wishes will give you peace of mind.

Your bequest can take one of three forms:

  • Residuary legacy: part of your estate remaining after family and friends have been looked after
  • Pecuniary legacy: a lump sum of money
  • Specific items: for example, real estate or shares

If you would like to leave a bequest to Tibet Society, we have provided the words below as a guide, although of course you or your solicitor may want to adapt them to meet your individual circumstances.

For a residuary legacy

“Subject as foresaid I GIVE AND BEQUEATH the whole of my Estate (or x% of the residue of my Estate) whatsoever and wheresoever both real and personal absolutely to Tibet Society of 2 Baltic Place, London, N1V 5AQ. for the General Purposes of Tibet Society and AND I DECLARE the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper Officer for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors”.

For a pecuniary legacy

“I GIVE AND BEQUEATH the sum of £x to Tibet Society of 2 Baltic Place, London, N1V 5AQ for the General Purposes of Tibet Society AND I DECLARE the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper Officer for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors”.

Should you wish to ensure that the sum of money you are leaving now will have the same relative value at the date of your death as it does now, please include the following wording after the above: “The amount of this legacy to Tibet Society shall be regarded as a provisional amount only and the amount payable shall be that provisional amount or if greater that provisional amount index linked to the retail prices index from the date of this Will to the date of my death”.

Liverpool FC’s sanctimonious evasive response to complaints about @LFC deal with a Chinese company exploiting occupied Tibet. @LiverpoolFC are taking no responsibility for the consequences of this deal, #LFC bring great shame on the great city of Liverpool.

“Thank you for contacting Liverpool Football Club.

Such concerns would need to be raised directly with Tibet Water.

Thank you for your continued support.

Tibet Water Resources has an ownership trail leading to relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders including the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, Li Xiaobing and her husband Wallace Yu Yiping.

Liverpool’s deal with Tibet Water Resources has boosted its share price. Tracking shares of Tibet Water Resources Ltd (1115.HK), we have noted that the SuperTrend is currently higher than recent stock price levels, the stock has entered into a buying territory.

 

Please call on Liverpool FC @LFC #LFC to ditch this deal over #TibetWater https://www.change.org/p/liverpool-fc-call-on-liverpool-fc-to-terminate-its-deal-with-chinese-company-tibet-water-resources-ltd #Liverpool #liverpoolfootballclub #liverpoolnews #TheReds, #KeepTibetAlive

 

 

“The match is yet to begin and Liverpool has already conceded a goal. It is an own goal by Liverpool FC to deal with a Chinese commercial company that exploits Tibet’s resources. Liverpool Football Club must understand the sufferings and sentiments of Tibetan people. Partnering with Tibet Water Resources Limited is like endorsing the occupation of Tibet and agreeing with treatment of Tibetans by Chinese regime”, said Pempa Lobsang, the chairman of the Tibetan Community in Britain.

 

A niece of former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, the “chief architect of economic reforms” who opened the People’s Republic of China to the market economy, is associated with the scandal “Papers of Panama,” the South China Morning Post.

According to the diary of the neighboring Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, which had access to research papers from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) on offshore companies, the list also includes a grandson of Jia Qinglin , a high profile of the Chinese communist regime over the past decade.

Mossack Fonseca’s China offices have created 16,300 front companies, or 29 percent of all companies created by the Panamanian law firm at the center of the scandal. Li Xiaobing, Deng’s niece and her husband, Wallace Yu Yiping, are listed as directors of a company called Water Enterprises, headquartered in the British Virgin Islands, the SCMP said.

This firm, which is associated with the Chinese bottled water company Tibet Water Resources, shared management with another company called Yu Space-owned Galaxia Space Management.

Wallace Yu was one of the co-founders of Tibet Water Resources – formerly called Tibet 5100 Water Resources – one of the largest companies in the sector in China and listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange through a firm based in the Cayman Islands.

According to the South China Morning Post, the involvement of Deng’s niece is due to Chinese regulations that prevent her companies from being listed outside mainland China. To escape Beijing’s restrictions, entities open branches in other countries.

The same newspaper also exposed the grandson of Jia Qinglin, who chaired the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the main consultation body of the Government and the Communist Party of China between 2008 and 2013 as the owner of offshore firms. Li Pak-tam has owned a company in the British Virgin Islands called Fung Shing Development, established in 2000.

His daughter, Li Zidan, owned two other companies registered in that tax haven, the same newspaper said.
Relatives of ex-Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping are HK residents – Panama Papers report

4 May 2016 11:57

More relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders have been found to be Hong Kong residents, according to the latest batch of leaked Panama Papers.

11.5 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca were obtained securely from an anonymous source over a year ago by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung. The data was shared with The International Consortium of Investigative Journalism (ICIJ), which enlisted help from other media outlets.

According to Ming Pao, among those named were Li Xiaobing, the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, and Li’s husband Wallace Yu Yiping. Both were directors of two offshore companies – Water Enterprise Ltd and Tibet 5100 Water Resources Ltd – incorporated in the British Virgin Islands using their Hong Kong identity card numbers.

The leaked files showed Yu’s Hong Kong identity card was issued as early as November 1994, and he held permanent residency in Hong Kong. Yu was born on the mainland and – according to symbols on the card – his reported name has been changed since the first issuance.

Ming Pao reported that Yu and Li are both Canadian passport holders according to Hong Kong Company Registry records.

Yu was also a director of Galaxia Space Management Ltd, which has been unregistered.

No one answered the door as the newspaper’s reporters went to Yu’s address in Tung Chung.

Seven HK residents

It was previously reported that relatives of ten Chinese top political figures have been found to hold offshore companies, according to the Panama Papers. Of the ten, at least seven are either Hong Kong residents, have bought properties in Hong Kong or have business ties to the city.

The Chinese leaders involved were Xi Jinping, Zhang Gaoli, Liu Yunshan, Li Peng, Jia Qinglin, Zeng Qinghong, Tian Jiyun, Hu Yaobang, Mao Zedong and Bo Xilai.

In the latest revelations, Zhang Gaoli’s daughter Cheung Hiu-yin – a name romanised using Cantonese pronunciation – was also found to be a Hong Kong identity card holder. She owns a house at Palm Springs in Yuen Long with her Hong Kong husband Lee Shing-put.

Ming Pao reporters reached out to Cheung at the house but she refused to reveal when he became a Hong Kong resident.

Aside from Jia Qinglin’s granddaughter Jasmine Li, Li’s father Li Pak-tam was also found to be a Hong Kong resident.

According to HK01, the documents showed Li Pak-tam had been living with a woman called Lam Ching Joanna. She has been signing cheques for Li and recently paying annual fees for Li’s offshore companies, which correlated with a rumour that Lam Ching Joanna was a pseudonym for Li’s wife – Jia Qinglin’s daughter Jia Qiang.

It is not illegal for Chinese citizens to open offshore accounts or own offshore companies, but the Communist Party’s constitution bans party officials and family members from profiting from their positions.

The ICIJ’s reports did not give details on how the offshore companies are used, listing only documents and addresses showing ties to the people involved. It noted that there are legitimate uses for offshore companies.

2017 September Tibet Society Update

2017 September Tibet Society Update

“Tibet Society has a special place in the hearts of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people. We wish them the very best.”

We are all honoured and humbled by these kind words written by Dr. Lobsang Sangay, the Sikyong, the democratically elected head of the Tibetan people and political successor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Tibet Society was founded shortly after the invasion and is the world’s oldest Tibet support group, but our work has never been more urgent. You can donate today via Paypal.

As Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet we work closely with MPs who have a special interest in Tibet and help devise strategies to keep Tibet on the political agenda. This is the “gateway to government” for all the Tibetan organisations in the UK and it has a genuinely international significance for the Tibetan movement.

We are arranging meetings for Tibetans to give testimonies to MPs and Foreign Office officials and we are developing our MP exchange programme which fosters relations between British and Tibetan exiled parliaments. Such visits strengthen support for Tibet in Westminster and help the exiled government with developing democratic processes.

Unfortunately, Tibet Society cannot qualify for charitable status because our core aims, such as supporting self-determination for Tibetans, lobbying governments, and protesting about human rights abuses, are classified as political by the Charity Commission. That shuts off many potential sources of income and makes us much more dependant than other Tibet groups on our members and supporters for funding.

With your help Tibet Society has ambitious plans to deliver a great deal over the next 12 months, but we need your support. Every donation, even the smallest, makes a huge difference to our vital ongoing campaign and lobbying work.

Thank you for standing in solidarity with the Tibetan people in their struggle.
Best wishes

David

Learn the facts. Sign and share our #TibetWater petition: http://bit.ly/2uqvl32 #SayNo2Occupation

This summer, Liverpool Football Club has entered into partnership with Tibet Water Resources Ltd (TWRL) as it’s official regional water partner in China. Tibet Society have raised a petition and are campaigning against this deal. You can find a link to our online petition on our website and our Facebook and Twitter feeds. Urgent action is required to stop Liverpool FC and halt deals with Chinese companies that exploit the occupation of Tibet and damage the fragile Tibetan environment. We urge you to be a part of our campaign by donating to Tibet Society and signing the petition.

PS: Remember Tibet in your will …

Please consider making provision in your will for a bequest to Tibet Society. The need for financial help has never been greater. Tibet has suffered enormously since the annexation of the country by the Chinese government in 1959, when the Dalai Lama was forced to flee across the border into India, where he remains to this day.
Sadly, there seems to be no day in sight when our help and campaigning will not be needed so any legacies for the future would be greatly appreciated.

Tibet Water Resources has an ownership trail leading to relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders including the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, Li Xiaobing and her husband Wallace Yu Yiping.

Liverpool’s deal with Tibet Water Resources has boosted its share price. Tracking shares of Tibet Water Resources Ltd (1115.HK), we have noted that the SuperTrend is currently higher than recent stock price levels, the stock has entered into a buying territory.

 

Please call on Liverpool FC @LFC #LFC to ditch this deal over #TibetWater https://www.change.org/p/liverpool-fc-call-on-liverpool-fc-to-terminate-its-deal-with-chinese-company-tibet-water-resources-ltd #Liverpool #liverpoolfootballclub #liverpoolnews #TheReds, #KeepTibetAlive

 

 

“The match is yet to begin and Liverpool has already conceded a goal. It is an own goal by Liverpool FC to deal with a Chinese commercial company that exploits Tibet’s resources. Liverpool Football Club must understand the sufferings and sentiments of Tibetan people. Partnering with Tibet Water Resources Limited is like endorsing the occupation of Tibet and agreeing with treatment of Tibetans by Chinese regime”, said Pempa Lobsang, the chairman of the Tibetan Community in Britain.

 

A niece of former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, the “chief architect of economic reforms” who opened the People’s Republic of China to the market economy, is associated with the scandal “Papers of Panama,” the South China Morning Post.

According to the diary of the neighboring Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, which had access to research papers from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) on offshore companies, the list also includes a grandson of Jia Qinglin , a high profile of the Chinese communist regime over the past decade.

Mossack Fonseca’s China offices have created 16,300 front companies, or 29 percent of all companies created by the Panamanian law firm at the center of the scandal. Li Xiaobing, Deng’s niece and her husband, Wallace Yu Yiping, are listed as directors of a company called Water Enterprises, headquartered in the British Virgin Islands, the SCMP said.

This firm, which is associated with the Chinese bottled water company Tibet Water Resources, shared management with another company called Yu Space-owned Galaxia Space Management.

Wallace Yu was one of the co-founders of Tibet Water Resources – formerly called Tibet 5100 Water Resources – one of the largest companies in the sector in China and listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange through a firm based in the Cayman Islands.

According to the South China Morning Post, the involvement of Deng’s niece is due to Chinese regulations that prevent her companies from being listed outside mainland China. To escape Beijing’s restrictions, entities open branches in other countries.

The same newspaper also exposed the grandson of Jia Qinglin, who chaired the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the main consultation body of the Government and the Communist Party of China between 2008 and 2013 as the owner of offshore firms. Li Pak-tam has owned a company in the British Virgin Islands called Fung Shing Development, established in 2000.

His daughter, Li Zidan, owned two other companies registered in that tax haven, the same newspaper said.
Relatives of ex-Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping are HK residents – Panama Papers report

4 May 2016 11:57

More relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders have been found to be Hong Kong residents, according to the latest batch of leaked Panama Papers.

11.5 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca were obtained securely from an anonymous source over a year ago by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung. The data was shared with The International Consortium of Investigative Journalism (ICIJ), which enlisted help from other media outlets.

According to Ming Pao, among those named were Li Xiaobing, the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, and Li’s husband Wallace Yu Yiping. Both were directors of two offshore companies – Water Enterprise Ltd and Tibet 5100 Water Resources Ltd – incorporated in the British Virgin Islands using their Hong Kong identity card numbers.

The leaked files showed Yu’s Hong Kong identity card was issued as early as November 1994, and he held permanent residency in Hong Kong. Yu was born on the mainland and – according to symbols on the card – his reported name has been changed since the first issuance.

Ming Pao reported that Yu and Li are both Canadian passport holders according to Hong Kong Company Registry records.

Yu was also a director of Galaxia Space Management Ltd, which has been unregistered.

No one answered the door as the newspaper’s reporters went to Yu’s address in Tung Chung.

Seven HK residents

It was previously reported that relatives of ten Chinese top political figures have been found to hold offshore companies, according to the Panama Papers. Of the ten, at least seven are either Hong Kong residents, have bought properties in Hong Kong or have business ties to the city.

The Chinese leaders involved were Xi Jinping, Zhang Gaoli, Liu Yunshan, Li Peng, Jia Qinglin, Zeng Qinghong, Tian Jiyun, Hu Yaobang, Mao Zedong and Bo Xilai.

In the latest revelations, Zhang Gaoli’s daughter Cheung Hiu-yin – a name romanised using Cantonese pronunciation – was also found to be a Hong Kong identity card holder. She owns a house at Palm Springs in Yuen Long with her Hong Kong husband Lee Shing-put.

Ming Pao reporters reached out to Cheung at the house but she refused to reveal when he became a Hong Kong resident.

Aside from Jia Qinglin’s granddaughter Jasmine Li, Li’s father Li Pak-tam was also found to be a Hong Kong resident.

According to HK01, the documents showed Li Pak-tam had been living with a woman called Lam Ching Joanna. She has been signing cheques for Li and recently paying annual fees for Li’s offshore companies, which correlated with a rumour that Lam Ching Joanna was a pseudonym for Li’s wife – Jia Qinglin’s daughter Jia Qiang.

It is not illegal for Chinese citizens to open offshore accounts or own offshore companies, but the Communist Party’s constitution bans party officials and family members from profiting from their positions.

The ICIJ’s reports did not give details on how the offshore companies are used, listing only documents and addresses showing ties to the people involved. It noted that there are legitimate uses for offshore companies.

Tibetan Community in Britain demands the termination of this unholy and unethical partnership in torturing Tibetans further and save long standing reputation image of the club.

Both were directors of two offshore companies – Water Enterprise Ltd and Tibet 5100 Water Resources Ltd – incorporated in the British Virgin Islands using their Hong Kong identity card numbers.

The leaked files showed Yu’s Hong Kong identity card was issued as early as November 1994, and he held permanent residency in Hong Kong. Yu was born on the mainland and – according to symbols on the card – his reported name has been changed since the first issuance.

Ming Pao reported that Yu and Li are both Canadian passport holders according to Hong Kong Company Registry records.

Yu was also a director of Galaxia Space Management Ltd, which has been unregistered.

No one answered the door as the newspaper’s reporters went to Yu’s address in Tung Chung.

Seven HK residents

It was previously reported that relatives of ten Chinese top political figures have been found to hold offshore companies, according to the Panama Papers. Of the ten, at least seven are either Hong Kong residents, have bought properties in Hong Kong or have business ties to the city.

The Chinese leaders involved were Xi Jinping, Zhang Gaoli, Liu Yunshan, Li Peng, Jia Qinglin, Zeng Qinghong, Tian Jiyun, Hu Yaobang, Mao Zedong and Bo Xilai.

In the latest revelations, Zhang Gaoli’s daughter Cheung Hiu-yin – a name romanised using Cantonese pronunciation – was also found to be a Hong Kong identity card holder. She owns a house at Palm Springs in Yuen Long with her Hong Kong husband Lee Shing-put.

Ming Pao reporters reached out to Cheung at the house but she refused to reveal when he became a Hong Kong resident.

Aside from Jia Qinglin’s granddaughter Jasmine Li, Li’s father Li Pak-tam was also found to be a Hong Kong resident.

According to HK01, the documents showed Li Pak-tam had been living with a woman called Lam Ching Joanna. She has been signing cheques for Li and recently paying annual fees for Li’s offshore companies, which correlated with a rumour that Lam Ching Joanna was a pseudonym for Li’s wife – Jia Qinglin’s daughter Jia Qiang.

It is not illegal for Chinese citizens to open offshore accounts or own offshore companies, but the Communist Party’s constitution bans party officials and family members from profiting from their positions.

The ICIJ’s reports did not give details on how the offshore companies are used, listing only documents and addresses showing ties to the people involved. It noted that there are legitimate uses for offshore companies.

“The match is yet to begin and Liverpool has already conceded a goal. It is an own goal by Liverpool FC to deal with a Chinese commercial company that exploits Tibet’s resources. Liverpool Football Club must understand the sufferings and sentiments of Tibetan people. Partnering with Tibet Water Resources Limited is like endorsing the occupation of Tibet and agreeing with treatment of Tibetans by Chinese regime”, said Pempa Lobsang, the chairman of the Tibetan Community in Britain.
TCB’s Spokesperson Tenzin Tashi la explains “Liverpool FC should know that China occupied Tibet by force and Tibetans are facing worst human rights abuses in the world. I urge Liverpool FC’s Commercial Department not to trade human rights for commercial gain. I don’t want Liverpool FC to be a partner in crime in abusing human rights of Tibetans”.
They added: “Tibetan Community in Britain will hand out leaflets to supporters to explain the true situation of Tibet and Tibetans under Chinese occupation. Liverpool FC cannot be approving occupation of Tibet and the treatment of Tibetans. TCB demands Liverpool FC to stop befriending blood stained hands of Chinese companies who are committed in exploiting Tibet’s’ resources and abusing human rights of Tibetan people.”
Tibetan Community in Britain demands the termination of this unholy and unethical partnership in torturing Tibetans further and save long standing reputation image of the club.

“Such concerns would need to be raised directly with Tibet Water” @LFC #LFC #TibetWater https://www.change.org/p/liverpool-fc-call-on-liverpool-fc-to-terminate-its-deal-with-chinese-company-tibet-water-resources-ltd #Liverpool #liverpoolfootballclub #liverpoolnews #TheReds, #KeepTibetAlive

Liverpool FC’s sanctimonious evasive response to complaints about @LFC deal with a Chinese company exploiting occupied Tibet. @LiverpoolFC are taking no responsibility for the consequences of this deal, #LFC bring great shame on the great city of Liverpool.

“Thank you for contacting Liverpool Football Club.

I am sorry to hear that you have concerns about our partnership.

Such concerns would need to be raised directly with Tibet Water.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards
Laura Liverpool Football Club”

Tibet Water Resources has an ownership trail leading to relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders including the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, Li Xiaobing and her husband Wallace Yu Yiping.

Liverpool’s deal with Tibet Water Resources has boosted its share price. Tracking shares of Tibet Water Resources Ltd (1115.HK), we have noted that the SuperTrend is currently higher than recent stock price levels, the stock has entered into a buying territory.

 

Please call on Liverpool FC @LFC #LFC to ditch this deal over #TibetWater https://www.change.org/p/liverpool-fc-call-on-liverpool-fc-to-terminate-its-deal-with-chinese-company-tibet-water-resources-ltd #Liverpool #liverpoolfootballclub #liverpoolnews #TheReds, #KeepTibetAlive

 

 

“The match is yet to begin and Liverpool has already conceded a goal. It is an own goal by Liverpool FC to deal with a Chinese commercial company that exploits Tibet’s resources. Liverpool Football Club must understand the sufferings and sentiments of Tibetan people. Partnering with Tibet Water Resources Limited is like endorsing the occupation of Tibet and agreeing with treatment of Tibetans by Chinese regime”, said Pempa Lobsang, the chairman of the Tibetan Community in Britain.

 

A niece of former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, the “chief architect of economic reforms” who opened the People’s Republic of China to the market economy, is associated with the scandal “Papers of Panama,” the South China Morning Post.

According to the diary of the neighboring Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, which had access to research papers from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) on offshore companies, the list also includes a grandson of Jia Qinglin , a high profile of the Chinese communist regime over the past decade.

Mossack Fonseca’s China offices have created 16,300 front companies, or 29 percent of all companies created by the Panamanian law firm at the center of the scandal. Li Xiaobing, Deng’s niece and her husband, Wallace Yu Yiping, are listed as directors of a company called Water Enterprises, headquartered in the British Virgin Islands, the SCMP said.

This firm, which is associated with the Chinese bottled water company Tibet Water Resources, shared management with another company called Yu Space-owned Galaxia Space Management.

Wallace Yu was one of the co-founders of Tibet Water Resources – formerly called Tibet 5100 Water Resources – one of the largest companies in the sector in China and listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange through a firm based in the Cayman Islands.

According to the South China Morning Post, the involvement of Deng’s niece is due to Chinese regulations that prevent her companies from being listed outside mainland China. To escape Beijing’s restrictions, entities open branches in other countries.

The same newspaper also exposed the grandson of Jia Qinglin, who chaired the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the main consultation body of the Government and the Communist Party of China between 2008 and 2013 as the owner of offshore firms. Li Pak-tam has owned a company in the British Virgin Islands called Fung Shing Development, established in 2000.

His daughter, Li Zidan, owned two other companies registered in that tax haven, the same newspaper said.
Relatives of ex-Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping are HK residents – Panama Papers report

4 May 2016 11:57

More relatives of current and former Chinese political leaders have been found to be Hong Kong residents, according to the latest batch of leaked Panama Papers.

11.5 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca were obtained securely from an anonymous source over a year ago by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung. The data was shared with The International Consortium of Investigative Journalism (ICIJ), which enlisted help from other media outlets.

According to Ming Pao, among those named were Li Xiaobing, the daughter of former leader Deng Xiaoping’s sister, and Li’s husband Wallace Yu Yiping. Both were directors of two offshore companies – Water Enterprise Ltd and Tibet 5100 Water Resources Ltd – incorporated in the British Virgin Islands using their Hong Kong identity card numbers.

Ming Pao reported that Yu and Li are both Canadian passport holders according to Hong Kong Company Registry records.

Yu was also a director of Galaxia Space Management Ltd, which has been unregistered.
