Millions of Chinese Communist Party Member Names Leaked

Nearly two million names of members belonging to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have been leaked.

Sky News of Australia reported that the leak came in the form of a register which details the names, party position, birthday, national ID number and ethnicity of CCP members.

The leak exposing members who are now working all over the world, while also lifting the lid on how the party operates under Xi Jinping,” says Sharri Markson of Sky News.

According to Markson, the leak exposes CCP members who have been embedded in large corporations and even national governments.

What’s amazing about this database is not just that it exposes people who are members of the communist party, and who are now living and working all over the world, from Australia to the US to the UK,” Markson said.

Communist party branches have been set up inside western companies, allowing the infiltration of those companies by CCP members – who, if called on, are answerable directly to the communist party, to the Chairman, the president himself,” she said.

Along with the personal identifying details of 1.95 million communist party members, mostly from Shanghai, there are also the details of 79,000 communist party branches, many of them inside companies.”

The leaked data was procured from a server in Shanghai by Chinese dissidents back in April 2016.

It was then leaked in mid-September to the newly-formed international bi-partisan group, the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China – and that group is made up of 150 legislators around the world,” Markson said.
