Vancouver’s mayor calls it a “difficult situation,” after his girlfriend’s mother is apparently behind bars in China facing charges of corruption.
Gregor Robertson says details are slim.
“I don’t really know anything about the story. Naturally, you know, it’s a very difficult situation for her and her family in China but no one really has much information on this so there is nothing I can comment on.”
Chinese state media reports Qu Zhang Mingjie , the mother of Chinese pop sensation Wanting Qu, allegedly undervalued the sale of state assets.
She was fired from her job as a Harbin city official late last year and is in police custody.
