Miles Kwok, or Guo Wengui, was born in an ordinary family. Originally the family was from Shen County, Shandong province, in northern China.
On his Chinese identity card, Guo Wengui registered his residence in Zhongyuan District, Zhengzhou City, Henan Province, born on February 2, 1967.
He also has Hong Kong permanent residency with a number of English names. One of his Hong Kong identities was registered as Guo Haoyun, born on October 5, 1968.
According to Guo Wengui himself in one of his “Say Hello” videos on May 11, 2017, he was 48 years old in 2017 and his birthday is May 10.
Another source pointed out that Guo Wengui is a native of Xicaoying Village, an ancient town in Jixian County, Shandong Province.
Guo is one of the three surnames of Xicaoying Village. Guo Wengui is ranked seventh in the family. When his father was young, the family moved to Zhaojiagou village, Hongqiling Town, Liushi County, Jilin Province, to make a living. The family returned to their hometown in the late 1970s.
Guo said a couple of times that his mother is the backbone of the family. She is kind-hearted with a good faith in Buddhism. The whole family was deeply influenced by his mother’s religious belief. Guo said his father had a weak personality. That was one of the reasons he often got bullied as a kid although he had seven brothers. He said his mother had to work very hard to feed the nine “men” including his father, but hard to find them enough food or keep her kids warm.
In the early 1980s, Guo Wengui entered the junior high school in the local Gucheng Town. He did not continue to high school after junior graduation. Instead, Guo Wengui took a girl from the ancient town, Yue Qingzhi, to settle in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province. Yue later became his wife and they have two children.
During their temporary migration to the northeastern part of China, his right-wing father under persecution was assigned to supervised labor at a state-owned factory, where early education was provided for the children.
Guo and his fiancée Yue Qingzhi both became employees of Heilongjiang Forest Medicine Cooperative; they served as sales representatives in the liaison office in Zhengzhou in 1989.
Guo said that he was arrested during the June 4th Movement in 1989. He sold his motorcycle and donated the earnings to the students in protest. He was detained in prison for eight months for his support of the democratic movement.
In the early 1990s, when he was about 25 years of age, Guo Wengui was arrested a second time because of disputes in business. At that time, he was with his younger brother when they were chased by police. His younger brother was denied treatment at the local hospital after he had been shot by a drunken policeman. He died at the hospital.
Later when Guo Wengui told about this incident, he said he had made up his mind at this moment that he would one day act against the evil Communist Party of China and must take it to hell. In one of his whistle blows in 2017, he said, “I have prepared for this moment for 28 years!”
Guo later told his audience that during his imprisonment, he met some democratic activists and religious believers in the cells and learned a lot from them on how to build a successful business and achieve a great mission.
After he was released from prison, with an idea to broaden his vision, Guo went abroad to travel. In Hong Kong, he was introduced to some financiers from the west by his Hong Kong friends. After returning to China, he hoped to make a living by doing business.
In 1992, Guo became the general manager of Henan Dalaoban Furniture Factory, which was a collectively owned enterprise under the Zhengzhou office for retired cadres of the Ministry of Nuclear Industry. According to the industrial and commercial registration data, the furniture factory was established on April 17, 1993. It was a collectively owned enterprise with a registered capital of 5.3 million yuan and the legal representative was Guo Wengui.
In the first half of the 1990s, Guo began to set foot in the real estate industry.
In September 1993, he participated in the founding of Zhengzhou Yuda Real Estate Co., Ltd. The company was a joint venture between his furniture factory and Hong Kong Aileen Co., Ltd, each holding 50% shares.
The venture had an initial registered capital of 15 million yuan. The chairman of the company was Xia Ping, a Hong Kong Aileen Representative. Guo was the vice chairman and general manager.
The first development by the venture was 18,000 square meters of land west of Yaozhai Village in the north of Dongming Road in Zhengzhou City. The project was supposed to be commercial and residential buildings mainly for middle and low-end income earners.
However, in September 1996, the furniture factory withdrew as a shareholder. And a new venture was established with Zhengzhou Weiren Trading Co. Ltd as the new shareholder, Guo Wengui as the chairman and legal representative. The registered capital rose to 246 million yuan, Zhengzhou Weiren and Hong Kong Aileen holding equal shares. Instead of building residential apartments for local residents, they changed to build the largest building in Zhengzhou.
In 1997, Henan Yuda Investment Co. Ltd. built Yuda International Trade Center in Zhongyuan Middle Road. This building maintained the highest building record in Zhengzhou for 15 years.
Because of its shape and style, the five-star Yuda International Trade Center was regarded as the Buddha’s hand in the central land of China. As owner of this magnificent hotel, Guo Wengui received many important guests from both the business and political circles. Li Keqiang, then governor of Henan province and Wu Yi, China’s Vice premier, also became his frequent visitors.
In October 1998, Guo Wengui transferred all his shares with the mainland company into Hong Kong Aileen and the venture thus became 100% Hong Kong-owned enterprise. He obtained Hong Kong residency and changed his name to Guo Haoyun. Guo Haoyun served as the general manager of the company for a long time.
In June 1999, Yuda International Trade Center was put into use as a whole. But around that time in 1999, Guo Wengui was involved in more business disputes and he had to travel to the United States to evade police persecution.
Guo Wengui later admitted in his whistle blows that he had to collaborate with the corrupt CCP government to do lots of evil in order to protect his life and wealth. These collaborations inspired him to further his business adventures in the capital Beijing.
In June 1998, Guo Wengui and actor Zhu Shimao jointly established Beijing Wenmao Investment Consultant Co., Ltd. with a registered capital of 5 million yuan, of which Guo invested 3 million yuan and Zhu invested 2 million yuan.
In February 2001, Zhu Shimao withdrew and Guo Wengui also transferred the shares to others. The company was later renamed Beijing Morgan Investment Co., Ltd. and was renamed Beijing Pangu Investment Co., Ltd.
On January 8, 2002, Guo Wengui established another company in Beijing, Beijing Jinquan real Estate Co., Ltd. and finally changed its name to Beijing Zenith Holdings Co., Ltd.
In September 2002, Guo Wengui acquired two plots in Datun Township, Chaoyang District, Beijing, to build Morgan Center and Jinquan Square respectively.
In 2003, the Morgan Center project was suspended due to government planning and financial disputes. In 2004, the Ministry of Land and Resources of China issued the provisions on the “transfer agreement on the operation of land use rights”. The following year, Guo Wengui again went overseas to seek financial support.
In October 2005, the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Land and Resources announced the withdrawal of state-owned land use rights for seven pieces of land including the Morgan Center. On January 5, 2006, Morgan Investment filed a lawsuit in the People’s Court of Chaoyang District, requesting the revocation of the Notice on Dissolving the Contract for the Transfer of State-Owned Land Use Rights.
On May 22, 2006, Morgan Center re-entered the land market bidding. The winning bidder was a mistress of Liu Zhihua, deputy mayor of Beijing, who was in charge of urban construction and is mainly engaged in the construction of the Olympic project.
Guo Wengui directly charged Liu Zhihua of corruption and on June 9, 2006, the deputy mayor was detained and sentenced to imprisonment by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. Guo’wengui’s Morgan Investment won back the rights to the Pangu project.
Guo said he had fought hard for 3 years to regain Pangu and succeeded in sending the vice mayor of Beijing to jail.
In the investigation of Liu’s crimes, Guo offended a large number of CCP officials, especially Wang Qishan. Guo had kept lots of evidence about Wang’s corruption.
In 2008, Tianjin Huanbohai Group had an internal dispute. Zheng Jieyu, Chairman of the Group reported the case to the Tianjin Public Security Bureau who arrested Zhao Yunan, the managing director of its subsidiary company Huatai. Requested by Zhao’s family, Guo Wengui intervened in the case and obtained the ownership of Huatai. In the process, businessman Xie Jiansheng, who has suffered a loss of interest, brought about a lawsuit against Guo Wengui.
In August 2012, the case for contract fraud brought about by Xie Jiansheng was approved by the Ministry of Public Security. Zhao Yunan was arrested; Guo Wengui fled overseas for the third time. With the efforts of Ma Jian, deputy director of the Ministry of National Security, Zhao Yunan was released on bail pending trial. In July 2012, the Jiaozuo City Public Security Bureau received a letter from the Ministry of National Security, claiming that Zhao Yunan was a secret service officer and ordered the bureau to revoke the case.
In late 2012, Wang Qishan was elected a standing member of the CCP Politburo and served as secretary of the Central Discipline Inspection Commission. Later he ordered the investigation of Ma Jian, Meng Huiqing, who also learned about Wang’s corruption during their participation in the case of Liu Zhihua.
From 2008 to 2012, Guo Wengui became well-known in Beijing’s business and political circles. Because of the success of the Pangu project and the Olympics Games, Guo and his Pangu became the gathering place for Beijing’s business and political celebrities. The State Security Ministry and legal officials often had internal meetings within the hotel. And Guo Wengui also became a national security agent with the recommendation from Ma Jian and other officials. This has given him the chance to learn lots of techniques in information collection and international intelligence.
Through the construction of at least three monumental buildings in the country, Guo Wengui has worked with some of the world’s best artists, designers and architects. Those connections helped build up his style of humbleness, carefulness, and elegance in his professions. The process has been heroic, legendary and at the same time full of dangers.
In May 2013, Guo Wengui raised RMB 8 billion through the East Asia Trust under the Peking University Founder Group. East Asia Trust transferred 4.9 billion yuan on a two-year creditor’s right to Shanghai Bank. Short time afterwards Guo Wengui broke up with Li You, CEO of Founder Group.
In the second half of 2014, Guo Wengui, then overseas, took legal actions against Li You and his Founder Group. December 19, 2014, Li You fled but later was taken away by police for investigation. Li You brought about a lawsuit against Guo Wengui and Ma Jian. On January 16, 2015, Ma Jian was investigated and later sentenced to imprisonment.
Knowing that he would be the next target of Wang Qishan, Guo Wengui fled overseas at the end of 2012, firs staying in Hong Kong, then the Middle East, then the United Kingdom. But on Jan 10, 2015, nearly all his family members and employees were arrested by armed police.
In March 2015, apparently as part of Wang Qishan’s plan, Caixin Media publicized a report titled “Power Hunter Guo Wengui”, announced that it had unveiled the political and business relationship of Guo Wengui, and accused him of involvement in the case of Ma Jian and.
On March 29, Pangu’s Weibo account issued a statement: “The recent report by Hu Shuli of Caixin media has defamed Mr. Guo Wengui and our company, causing serious damage to their reputation. As a senior executive, Hu Shuli has used her power to maliciously manipulate false public opinion, regardless of basic professional ethics. Mr. Guo Wengui hereby publicly responds to the report, willing to face Ms. Hu Shuli in an open dialogue and tell the truth to the public.”
Guo Wengui revealed that Hu Shuli and Li You have an illegitimate child, that Hu Shuli and Li You illegally obtained benefits from listed companies, illegally used state-owned assets for personal gain, and questioned Hu Shuli’s political background and connections with Wang Qishan.
On January 26th and March 8th, 2017, Guo Wengui accepted live TV interviews with the overseas Chinese media Mingjing, claiming to disclose the corruption and sex scandals of CCP’s dignitaries, especially Wang Qishan. Guo said he did this in order to “preserve life, save his money, and avenge”.
The highly intense Chinese government 3 times sent Liu Yanping, secretary of State Security Ministry, first to London, then to New York, trying to get Guo Wenguo back to China. In the United States, Liu was detained at the airport briefly by US FBI for judicial enforcement in the US.
Guo Wengui claimed that Guan Jun, Liu Chengjie, and Sun Yao are illegitimate children of Wang Qishan and another CCP leader. To defame Guo Wengui and question the credibility of his revelations, the CCP government found some impersonates of Guan Juan, Liu Chengjie, and Sun Yao and produced fake videos for broadcast on China Central Television (CCTV). They also fabricated a video to describe Guo Wengui as a rapist.
At the same time, the CCP government held court hearings of Guo’s family members and employees and broadcast them on CCTV. They kidnapped Qu Guojiao, Guo’s business partner in Hong Kong and made her disappear after asking her to confess her crimes on TV.
The CCP government has a strong force in the US to defame Guo Wengui, threatening his family, and doing everything they can to prevent him from whistle blowing.
On April 19, 2017, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that Interpol had been requested to issue a “red notice” for the arrest of Guo Wengui.
On April 19, 2017, Guo Wengui accepted a live interview with Voice of America and continued to accuse Wang Qishan of corruption. He claimed that in order to restore the freedom of his family and company employees, he accepted the order of Fu Zhenghua, Vice Minister of the Chinese Ministry of Public Security, to collect and investigate Hainan Airlines’ capital flows.
The live broadcast expected to last for 3 hours was suddenly interrupted after about 80 minutes, triggering speculation that the Chinese government had inserted its pressure on the Voice of America. However, Amanda Bennett refused to acknowledge in the congressional investigation that it was subject to Chinese instructions.
In Guo’s broadcast, Wang Qishan was accused to have a family member who was a shareholder of HNA Group, and that his family had many private properties in the US, including a luxury home worth more than $5 million in California. Latter the accusations were verified by several Chinese media. Wang Qishan has never made a public argument.
On May 29, 2017, Guo Wengui broadcasted live on YouTube that Wang Qishan controlled billions of financial resources, besides his overseas real estate assets and illegitimate children.
On June 16, 2017, Guo Wengui accepted the third live webcast interview of Mingjing’s reporter Chen Xiaoping. The interview lasted more than four hours. Guo Wengui commented on the trial results of Pangu’s so-called “fraudulent case”, on the joint prosecution of nine Chinese companies in New York, the motives of the live broadcast, and his plan for a global press conference.
The most striking content of the interview was the disclosure of US citizenship and real estate assets of multiple relatives of Wang Qishan, the financial network and affiliates of HNA Group, the identities of the main persons in charge of HNA and the bank account numbers and transaction records involved in the suspected corruption loans. Guo Wengui said that the total assets involved in the relevant people amounted to 20 trillion yuan.
On June 30, 2017, Guo Wengui revealed in a live-streaming video that many female movie stars including Fan Bingbing and Xu Qing were sexually connected with Wang Qishan. He said Wang Qishan also recorded a sex movie with 18 CD copies and he also saw part of it. This has sparked widespread attention.
On July 17, 2017, Guo Wengui was interviewed by Mingjing for the fourth time, and again he provided evidence of Wang Qishan’s corruption and the involvement of his family. In addition to disclosure of the relationship between Chen Feng, Chairman of HNA Group, Chen Chao and Chen Xiaofeng, and their relatives Yao Qing and Wang Jian, he also disclosed their names, dates of birth, ID numbers and passport number. Disclosed also were their personal information, account balances of major banks at home and abroad, and direct or indirect holding company information. He further announced the addresses and ownership of the Wang Qishan family’s many properties in the United States.
On October 4, 2017, a scheduled press briefing at Hudson Institute was canceled as a result of CCP interference. At about the same period, the Republican fundraiser Elliot Broidy was busy lobbying for the extradition of Guo to China. Elliot Broidy was later convicted.
On August 15, 2018, the Hong Kong judicial authorities released documents showing that the Hong Kong police had frozen the Guo Wengui family’s assets of HK$32.9 billion, or US$4.2 billion, in the investigation of Guo Wengui’s alleged money laundering case.
On October 12, 2018, the Intermediate People’s Court of Dalian in Liaoning Province announced that Beijing Zenith Holdings Co., Ltd. was severely punished with a fine of RMB 60 billion for forced trading.
On November 20, 2018, Guo Wengui and former White House strategist Steve Bannon held a press conference on the death of Wang Jian and the truth behind HNA Group in New York. They announced the establishment of the rule of law fund with the first donation of 100 million US dollars from Guo Wengui, partly for rescuing entrepreneurs and officials who have been persecuted by the CCP.
The 11.20 Press Conference was a turning point in Guo’s fight against the CCP. As Steve Bannon and Guo Wengui joined hands, US President Donald Trump and his Vice-president Mike Pence also started their decisive war against global communism, with targeted intelligence from Guo Wengui and his team. The Himalayas is just ahead of us.
“Whether I am a rapist or criminal has nothing to do with the fact that Wang Qishan and other traitors have committed numerous crimes and brought about disasters to the Chinese people,” Guo Wengui said, “Whether I have money or not has nothing to do with the fact that the CCP government is a vicious dictatorship and the most corrupt regime in the world”.
We don’t care whether Guo has done anything wrong in his past; we only care what he is doing right now for the well-being of the Chinese nation.
