After I accidentally received news regarding the mistress of Zongtan Wang (the director of Qingdao Monetary Regulation Commission) giving birth and exposed this wrongdoing, I have been constantly demoted inside the company, wiretapped, and being threatened inside company elevators for the past 5 years. However, this high-ranking official Mr. Wang who put me through all these pains, still held the same position, bolstering his influence, planning his revenge and using his power which easily stopping me to seek any litigation. 

On January 6th, 2020, the Shandong Province, Jinan City, Li Xia district people’s court had a closed trial secession, and Peng Bo received the final verdict of 4 years of imprisonment due to “serve public disobedience”.

Her fake news was reported by many other news outlets, and received wide tractions on the internet, such action led to unhealthy discussion and misguided many netizens, and brought chaos to public order, thus the court’s final verdict was “public disobedience crime”.
