China Blocking New York Times Website

The New York Times has reported access to their sites blocked in China following the news media investigations about the family’s wealth of the Prime Minister Wen Jiabao.

The newspaper said the blocking of the first done on their Chinese site version, followed by the English version of the site. Reference link to the report published The New York Times also blocked in the micro-blog site.

In its report, the New York Times said Wen’s family members control assets worth at least U.S. $ 2.7 billion.

Wen Jiabao’s family members, including his son, his daughter, his brother and sister-in-law, who became very rich while he was prime minister, according to a newspaper report.

In many cases, their names hidden behind many layers on behalf of the partnership and investment involving friends, co-workers and business.

The newspaper said both the Chinese government and the Wen family declined to comment on reports of an investigation by the recording company of the year 1992-2012.

No company in the name of Wen found or impossible to find from the documents, if he removes traces of any decision that may affect the company’s family or whether they received preferential treatment in investment.

Not the first time
China is very sensitive to the reports of their leaders, especially related to their wealth. The growth of the wealth gap will lead to public discontent, given the many corruption scandals involving government officials.

A spokesman for the New York Times said he hoped the full access to their site will return any time soon in China. Blocking websites in China due to media bias of China leaders is not the first.

In June 2012, when Bloomberg audit report investigating the prospective next president Xi Jinping, the site is also blocked in China – although the report does not indicate an error that made Xi Jinping or family.

Wen Jiabao has been prime minister for nearly 10 years. He will submit his position in a transition of power November 8. He was known as a popular figure and state media described as a leader who cares for the life of ordinary people.
