Bankers, then doctors...now media figures?


Liu Jiandong, the general manager the 21st Century Business Herald, a major Chinese newspaper group that has been in trouble with the government for alleged blackmail and corruption, mysteriously "fell to his death on Monday", the newspaper said.

The 21st Century Business Herald carried a short statement on its official microblog from publisher 21st Century Media Ltd saying 21st Century Media's general manager, Liu Jiandong, had fallen from a building and died despite efforts to save him. As Reuters adds, Liu took up his job in January 2015, which he was dedicated to, and was "upright and honest", the paper said, adding an investigation was going on.

In a "suicide" that was a carbon copy of the death of Monte Paschi's David Rossi, the police in the southern city of Guangzhou, where the newspaper is based, said it had responded to a call about a man "falling from an office building." Police only identified him by his family name, Liu, and said he was a company general manager.

He must have been looking up at one of those whoop ass UFOs they have over there and stumbled off the edge.


Do you pronounce his surname 'giant dong"?  If he were tragically under endowed it might cause suicidal tendencies.
