  • China Happy Hour To Zero In On Gu Kailai Allegedly Using A Body Double At Trial 0 comments
    Aug 24, 2012 6:41 PM

    (August 19, 2012, New York) Did Gu Kailai use a body double in the court when she was given a suspended death sentence for the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood? That's the question International Business Times' Amrutha Gayathri asks himself. Indeed, speculation has been rife that the woman who was present in the court during China's most scandalous political trial in recent times was not Gu.

    Ever since the footage from the trial of the ousted Chinese leader Bo Xilai's wife was made public, Chinese Internet users have been circulating composite images of Gu's court appearance and those before the trial.

    Gu, often referred to as China's Jackie Kennedy, by virtue of her sharp features, looked strikingly different from her image which was captured during the trial.

    "Are we looking at the same woman? There are rumors that the woman who appeared in the court room is a body double, because whether you are thin or fat, your bone structure shouldn't change," BBC quoted a Chinese Internet user.

    "Please note the corner of the mouth, the bags under the eyes and the ears, especially the ears. You might flatten the bags, but you can't change the shape of your ears," another user wrote.

    This month, Golden Networking's China Happy Hour (http://www.ChinaHappyHour.com) will invite a number of journalists who have followed the trial, conviction and suspended death sentence of Gu Kailai, the wife of purged Chinese leader Bo Xilai, in close detail, for the panel "The Gu Kailai Trial" moderated by its founder Edgar Perez. There will be time afterwards for Q&A and the best China networking in New York City.

    China Happy Hour will be held Tuesday August 28th, 6PM; these receptions have been known to attract executives and professionals not only from China but also from South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, and India, among other nationalities.

    China Happy Hour New York City, featured in The New York Times, is produced by Golden Networking (http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs and investors. Panelists, speakers and sponsors are invited to contact Golden Networking by sending an email to info@goldennetworking.net.
