The Little Red Mansion is a seven-story building located close to the district government offices. Zhao Fuqiang has leased the building since 2014.

Fuqiang, a native of Taixing, Jiangsu, came to Shanghai to work as a tailor in the 1990s. He opened a hairdressing shop around 2000, but it soon became an organized prostitution racket making him rich within a few years. 

In 2014, Fuqiang rented a seven-story building known as the “Little Red Mansion” near the district government building.

Fuqiang used lies and violence to force women into prostitution in the “Red Mansion.” The victims became the sex slaves of officials.


Many surveillance cameras were hidden in the building to photograph officials who came to play and then used them to intimidate and threaten. Allegedly within 20 years, he made about $157 million. 

Cruel and corrupt CCP covers up sex slave crimes

Fuqiang deceived women and forced them into prostituting in the building. As a result, the victims would become sex slaves of many officials, mainly from Jiangsu province, Fuqiang’s birthplace.

For example, Fuqiang tricked a student who studied in the United States to work in a company in the name of a recruiting program assistant. Then, through beatings, rapes, and imprisonment, he forced her to become a sex slave in the “Little Red Mansion.”

The most shocking is not Fuqiang’s debauchery, the shamelessness of the party officials involved, nor the tragic situation of the victims, but the horror when the victims risked their lives to seek help from authorities only to be returned to Fuqiang.

The media revealed a woman victim escaped from the Mansion in 2017, for the first time, but the police returned her to Fuqiang.

When the victim ran away for the second time to the police station, Fuqiang rushed over there and got her himself.

Over the years, countless victims have experienced similar situations, and the police even said, “You can’t get him.”

Ironically, the “Little Red House” building is only about 220 yards from the Yangpu District Government and the Yangpu District Women’s Federation. The Women’s Federation is an organization known by the CCP to “defend women’s rights and interests.”

The entire Yangpu District, and even Shanghai, is a corrupt system with a web of collusion between officials and businessmen.

The court’s sentences and investigation list

American Overseas Television Network (AOTN) listed three ex-superiors of Lu Yan who were involved in the caseThe case went to court in May 2019 and Zhao was sentenced to a death sentence with reprieve in September 2020. 

According to the Epoch Times, 13 lower-level officials were imprisoned. Zhang Zheng, the Songjiang District Court of Shanghai president who presided over the case, was dismissed last month.

The 13 officials involved in the case have now been put in prison, but more prominent officials were released. 

As for the list of sex crimes held by the inspection team and Li Qiang, it may include far more than those listed for the 13 lower-level officials investigated. 

The list of senior officials involved in the case includes those from Shanghai and Jiangsu province.

The highest-ranking official charged in the case was Lu Yan from Jiangsu, a member of the Standing Committee of the Yangpu District Committee and Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee.

On Oct. 28, Lu Yan, a former member of the Standing Committee of the Yangpu District Committee of the Communist Party of China and Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee of the District Committee, was “double-opened” and transferred to justice. 

If Lu Yan is officially Fuqiang’s most significant protection umbrella, who is backing Lu Yan?

Due to Jiang Zemin’s time as CCP Leader, Shanghai authorities and business circles have spread throughout Jiangsu in the past three decades, and Fuqiang is just one of them. 

The highest-ranking official sentenced was Lu Yan, from Jintan, Jiangsu. He worked in Yangpu, Shanghai, for a long time.  

Judging from the resume data, Zhuge Yujie, Jin Xingming, and Chen Yin were once Lu Yan’s superiors as listed by American Overseas Television Network.

Also investigated was Chen Yin, then a member of the Standing Committee of the Shanghai Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China and Executive Deputy Mayor of the Municipal Government. As a result, Chen Yin resigned from his post.

Zhuge Yujie, also under investigation, was a member of the Standing Committee of the Shanghai Municipal Committee, Secretary-General of the Municipal Committee, and the Secretary of the Party Working Committee of Municipal Organs.

Jin Xingming, Vice Chairman of the Shanghai Municipal Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference Senior officials, was also investigated.

Chen Anjie, former Secretary of the Yangpu District Party Committee.

Li Yueqi, former Secretary of the Yangpu District Party Committee. He is now working as Secretary of the Taizhou City Committee of Zhejiang Province.

On Oct. 23, Cen Hongquan, deputy director of the Yangpu Branch of the Shanghai Public Security Bureau, was investigated.
