And also at the ceremony on Sunday for the 100th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution, former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin was present in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing—ending any speculation that he had died.

在週日(中共)紀念辛亥革命100週年典禮上,前中共領導人江澤民在北京人民大會堂出席,結束他已死亡的任何臆測。

Speculation of his death became widespread when he failed to appear at a celebration of the Communist Party’s 90th anniversary in July. It was censored in China but reported widely in Hong Kong. Jiang took power after a purge of relatively liberal leaders following the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.

當7月份江澤民無法出席中共90週年慶,江已死的猜測廣泛流傳。這在中國受到新聞檢查控制,但在香港卻被廣泛地報導。江澤民是在一位相對自由的領導者遭到整肅後(譯註:趙紫陽),接掌權力。

The hard-line leader was widely viewed as a political opportunist towards the end of his term, focused on city-centric economic development that left out rural Chinese and the poor.

這位強硬領導人,一直到任期結束,都被廣泛視為是一位政治機會主義者,以城市經濟的發展為重心,忽略鄉村中國及貧困者。

In 1999 he launched the brutal persecution against the popular Falun Gong meditation practice—a persecution that is still going on today. He is retired but is still believed to wield power behind the scenes.

1999年,江澤民發動對廣受歡迎的法輪功殘酷的迫害─一直到今天還在進行。江已退休,但據信仍然在幕後操控權力。
