Anti-Cult Bureaucrat

On August 17, 2021, the CCP’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection informed that it had expelled Peng Bo from the Party. The decision was taken “with the approval of the Central Committee of the CCP.”  

Peng Bo is the former deputy director of the Office of the Leading Group for Prevention and Handling of Xie Jiao Issues, i.e., one of the top bureaucrats involved in the repression of religious movements banned and included in the list of the xie jiao, a word the CCP itself translates into English as “evil cults,” but whose meaning is “heterodox teachings.”

CCP bureaucrats rise and fell continuously, but it is not common that press releases are issued, the approval of the Central Committee is mentioned, and detailed explanations are added. In the case of Peng Bo, the press release states that, “After investigation, it was found that Peng Bo’s ideals and beliefs collapsed, he was not loyal to the Party, deviated from the Party Central Committee’s decisions and deployment of online public opinion struggles, abandoned the management of the Internet position, used public equipment for private purposes, relied on the Internet only to fight the Internet, resisted organizational censorship, and engaged in superstitious activities.”
