The 7th Announcement Regarding the Open Letter on Liu Juhua’s Plagiarism Case
December 15, 2012
The alleged plagiarism committed by Ms. Liu Juhua is a simple academic misconduct case, and from administrative and legal point of views, the Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (GSCASS) has unshirkable obligation and responsibility to deal with it. Unfortunately, since the publication of our Open Letter
, nine months have passed, and GSCASS is still pretending nothing has happened, is still refusing to respond to us and Chinese society.
On December 4, 2012, the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee (CPCCC) held a meeting, presided over by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPCCC. According to the statement released after the meeting, all members of the Political Bureau are urged to understand the real situation facing society through in-depth inspections at grassroots, listen more to the public and officials at grassroots levels, and solve people's practical problems. The meeting demands Party organizations and officials at all levels to implement the “eight requirements.” (Xinhua News Agency. New CPC leadership rejects extravagance, bureaucracy
We believe that GSCASS not only should implement the eight requirements specified by the new leadership of CPC, it also should follow the example of the Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Sciences (now University of Chinese Academy of Sciences), which deprived the doctorate degree and revoked the diploma of one of its alumni
in less than three weeks after his plagiarism was disclosed, to prosecute Liu Juhua’s case, and hold the relevant personals accountable for their responsibility. Otherwise, we have to ask: Do you think you are beyond the law of the land?
