In China 2009[edit]

On July 21, 2009 Nuctech representative Yang Fan (杨帆) and two Namibians, Teckla Lameck and Jerobeam Mokaxwa, were arrested after Namibia’s Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) discovered that a US$12.8 million down payment on 13 scanners had been diverted to a firm called Teko Trading owned by the two Namibians.[2] Namibia prosecutors accuse them of joining in a bribery scheme that secured a $55.3 million contract in May 2008 to install Nuctech scanners at customs inspection points across Namibia.[2] Other sources report the contract to be worth $69 million.[12]

Netizens in China were blocked from accessing stories about the son of Hu Jintao in the wake of the scandal. Leading Chinese web portals, Sina and NetEase, could not be opened for several hours after they posted reports about the company linked to Hu Haifeng.[12] The report related to Hu Haifeng had been deleted from both web sites when their technology sections came back online.[13] An industry insider who declined to give his name said that both Sina and Netease were likely to face official sanctions.[13] Neither company confirmed that the sites had been blocked by the authorities or that their blockage was linked to any content. A customer service executive at Sina.com said the site had experienced technical problems.[13]
