On the morning of January 16, 2019, the First Intermediate People’s Court of Shanghai publicly s
entenced 15 defendants, including Shanghai Quick Deer Investment (Group) Co., Ltd., Shanghai Changning Donghongqiao Small Loan Co.,
Ltd., Shanghai Donghongqiao Financing Guarantee Co., Ltd. and defendants, Huang Jiaqian, Wei Yanping, Zhou Mengmeng, Xu Qi (American nati
nality), to collect funds fraudulently and illegally absorb public deposits. In a series of cases, the Fast Deer Group, Donghongqiao Small Credit Company and Do
nghongqiao Guarantee Company were fined RMB 1.5 billion, 200 million and 200 million yuan respectively for fund-raising fraud; Huang Jiaqian and Wei Yanping were sentenced to life imprisonment and
fine for fund-raising fraud and illegal absorption of public deposits; Xu Qi was also sentenced to 13 years’imprisonment for fund-raising fraud and illegal a
bsorption of public deposits. Fines; the remaining 12 defendants, such as Zhou Mengmeng, were sentenced to 15 to 9 years’imprisonment and fines for the crime of fund-raising fraud.
From September 2013 to August 2015, Shi Jianxiang (another case) set up a fast deer group with
the core of personal control and unified management of Donghongqiao Small Credit Company, Donghongqiao G
uarantee Company, Jinlu Family, Tianjin Family and China Sea Investment Family to implement illegal fund-raising activities.
From March 2014 to April 2016, Shi Jianxiang ordered Donghongqiao Small Credit Company to provide false creditor’s rights, Donghongqiao Guarantee Com
pany to match false guarantee letters, and then packaged into various financial products by Jinlu Financing Platform, together with fund products issued
by CITIC Financing Platform without approval of relevant departments, to hold promotion meetings and send leaflets. And Internet advertising, ran
dom phone calls, hosting or sponsoring performances through stores, the Internet and other channels to publicize and sell to the public, thus raising a total
of 43.4 billion yuan illegally. All the above illegal fund-raising proceeds were transferred to the bank accounts actually controlled by Shi Jianxiang and
Quick Deer Group. Except for over 28.2 billion yuan, which was used to pay the principal and interest of investors in the earlier period, the remaining fund
s were used to pay operating expenses, equity acquisition and film and television investment, transfer to overseas and purchase vehicles, and pe
rsonal profligacy and embezzlement. By the time the case was committed, the actual economic losses in the case amounted to more than 15.2 billion yuan.
According to the First Shanghai Intermediate Court of Justice, the three defendant units and 15 persons directly in charge, such as Huang Jiaqian, and other persons
directly responsible, have used fraudulent methods to raise funds illegally for the purpose of illegal possession, and their acts have all constituted the
crime of fund-raising fraud, and the amount is especially huge. Xu Qi, the defendant, also violated the relevant state regulations by illegally absorbing pub
lic deposits and disrupting the financial order. His actions constitute the crime of illegally absorbing public deposits, and the amount is huge. The illegal fund-ra
ising activities of the above-mentioned defendant units and defendants caused huge economic losses to nearly 40,
000 victims, seriously undermined the national financial order and seriously endangered the national financial security. In light of the facts, nature, circu
mstances and degree of social harm of the case, the above-mentioned judgment was made in accordance with the law.
According to Hong Kong media reports, the Hong Kong Consumer Council recently tested
58 samples of cookies and biscuits on the market, of which nearly 90% (51) detected carcinogens, including one of Tse Tingfeng’s biscuits.
As we all know, Tingfeng Tse is a good cook. Unlike Huang Lei and Wang Han, Tingfeng Tse is
good at making western food, desserts and biscuits. So Tse Tingfeng’s food brand is very popular, and biscuits are the most popular in the star circle.
The materials and methods of the sharp cookies are all developed by Tse Tingfeng. He is very strict with the details and the biscuits a
re exquisite. One of them is a biscuit with the theme of “sour, sweet, bitter and spicy”. The price of more than 200 yuan is not low.
On December 20, 2018, when Ajiao was married in Hong
Kong, Tingfeng Tse specially made wedding cakes for her and presented them to the guests who went to the wedding. Rel
atives and friends in Hong Kong received Kujuji’s cake, while relatives and friends in the Mainland received Tse Tingfeng’s cake.
The packaging of Tse Tingfeng’s cake is specially redesigned: “Spicy cookies” are packed in golden and double happiness gift boxes, whic
h are printed with “No matter bitter or sweet or sour, let love go hand in hand”, as well as cartoon illustrations of Agao and Lai Hongguo.
I don’t know if Ajiao’s inland relatives and friends will regret eating Tse Tingfeng’s cake
after seeing the news. Maybe they won’t want to eat it and stay at home to commemorate it. That’s better, otherwise they will be very responsive.
Wu Qinggong, a non-renowned entertainment critic, pointed out that in recent years, Tse Tingfeng has made few films and TV dram
as and seldom issued new songs, but the variety show “Fengwei” is held every year because he loves to share delicious food with friends.
After this “biscuit carcinogenic” storm, I wonder if Tse Tingfeng will put his mind on filming again? After all, he is an artist, not a businessman!
