The Telegraph’s Malcolm Moore reports fromBeijing, according to Japanese newspaper the Asahi Shimbun, when Mr. Heywood came to Chongqing last November, Bo Xilai’s wife Gu Kailai had already been under investigation and felt being cornered. The Asahi says, she “has now admitted her guilt, telling investigators that Mr Heywood was poised to reveal that she was funnelling ‘billions of dollars’ overseas.”
The Telegraph’s report says, she “may have transferred as much as $6 billion (£3.84 billion) overseas. Mr Heywood has been accused of helping her to move some of that money.”
It also says, “According to the Asahi, Communist party officials have now ‘decided to indict Gu following her confession’. They are also allegedly investigating whether Mr Bo, 62, was aware of his wife’s actions, have interviewed hundreds and detained ‘dozens of people’ associated with him ‘including his chauffeurs, close aides and secretaries’.
