The son of a high ranking Communist politician has died after engaging in sex games with two women whilst driving his Ferrari in high speed.
The naked body of 23 year old Ling Gu was found in the mangled wreck but Chinese commentators believe officials have been loathe to discuss the case because the man’s father is a close ally of outgoing President Hu Jintao. Nevertheless the eventual leaking of the incident has caused outrage in China.
At the time of the incident photos were released online whilst rumors circulated that the deceased was that of the son of a high ranking Communist official. The two women involved were also seriously hurt, with one left paralyzed from the neck down.
It was not clear at the time how the accident came to be but rumors persisted it involved a sex act with two naked women when the car suddenly spun out of control.
At the time of the accident, all reports of the accident were deleted by a censoring authority, including blocking all searches for the words ‘Ferrari,’ ‘Little Ling’ and ‘Prince Ling.’ Officials went even so far as to change the name on the death certificate in order to conceal the identity of the deceased.
The circumstances of the incident were suddenly brought to the fore after local media questioned the sudden removal of Ling Gu’s father, Ling Jihua from his post. It is understood that Ling Jihua was responsible for leadership security which perhaps makes the circumstances of the case all the more ironic, a fact probably not lost on officials who are still refusing to comment on it.
The accident is being up as the latest example of extravagant and decadent behavior at the hands of China’s entitled ‘second generation rich,’ which so often includes the coddled children and close relatives of government and high net worth business leaders.
Despite only earning a meager $10 000 a year from their government roles it is generally understood the real benefits of office include the advantages given to those in close circles which exposes them to a world of luxury and social status hardly offered to most Chinese who are often forced to accept less than hospitable realities.
At present Chinese commentators are asking how the recent University graduate was able to afford the the marquee sports car and what this suggests his father may have had to do (illegally) to acquire such a gift to bestow to his son.
