Chapter 249 A Son Who Dug a Pit for His Father
Qin Haodong’s smile disappeared. That guy was really greedy. He hadn’t done anything, yet he had the audacity to ask for 500 million yuan.
He said coldly, “The formula is mine. Why should I give you money?”
“Just because my father is the director of the Drug Administration!” Zhu Hao said with assurance. “Don’t think that I’m threatening you. You have never heard of Long River Pharmaceutical Industry? You offended my father with your ignorance. Now, you have to bear the consequences.
I’m telling you, if you want to survive in the pharmaceutical industry, you must stay connected to our family. Otherwise, you will be out of the game before you know it.”
Qin Haodong pretended to be frightened by his words. He hesitated before he asked, “Was it your father’s idea or your idea to ask me for money today?”
Zhu Hao said triumphantly, “Is it important? I’m my father’s only son, so I represent him. He’ll do whatever I want him to do.”
Qin Haodong said, “If I gave you 500 million yuan, what benefits would I get?”
“Lots of benefits! Your medicine would be approved as soon as possible, and the Drug Administration wouldn’t bother you in the future. You would just make all the money you want.”
Qin Haodong said with a somber expression, “You mean that, no matter what kind of medicine I made and whether it qualified or not, if I paid you the money, it would be approved, right?”
Zhu Haosi, who did not sense the change in Qin Haodong’s tone, said complacently, “Of course, we have the final say on whether or not a medicine qualifies.”
“Have you ever wondered what harm it would do to people if poor-quality medicine was on the market?”
Zhu Hao now seemed to get Qin Haodong’s point. Still, he said impatiently, “Why are you talking so much nonsense? Just tell me whether you will pay or not.”
Qin Haodong said coldly, “I have money, but I won’t give you any.”
Zhu Hao, who hadn’t expected to get such an answer after this long conversation, said angrily, “Boy, are you kidding me?”
“Get out of here, or I’ll have you thrown out.”
Zhu Hao was shocked. This was the top floor. He would become a meat pie if he was really thrown out. He cried in a fierce voice, “Wait, boy! One day, you will come up to me and beg me. Then, you will not lose only 500 million, but one or two billion.”
Afraid that Qin Haodong would lose his temper, he rushed out of the clinic.
Qin Haodong looked at his back coldly. Judging by Zhu Hao’s behavior, his father had to be no better. This moth had to be pulled out. Otherwise, he would be a menace to the public.
He turned to Zhang Zhijie and said, “Did you videotape the entire conversation we had just now?”
“Yes, I did. This guy is really abominable. You must teach him some kind of lesson.”
Zhang Zhijie handed a memory card to Qin Haodong. The pinhole camera he had bought last time hadn’t been brought home. The moment he had seen Qin Haodong’s gesture, he had immediately taken it out and begun to videotape the scene. Everything Zhu Hao had said and done had been clearly recorded.
Qin Haodong put the memory card away. This wouldn’t be enough to overthrow Zhu Haodong’s father. Zhu Baiwen could disentangle himself by insisting that it had nothing to do with him.
Upon thinking of this, he took out his mobile phone and dialed Qi Waner’s number.
“I want all the information available on Director Zhu Baiwen of the Drug Administration. I need enough scandals to send him to prison for a lifetime.”
“I knew you wouldn’t call me if you didn’t need me.” Qi Waner complained. “I can help you search for the information, but you have to treat me to dinner tomorrow evening.”
Ever since Qi Waner had expressed her stance to him last time, Qin Haodong hadn’t known how to face her. He was still very afraid of being alone with her.
However, he couldn’t escape from it now, so he had to answer, “Just a meal? No problem!”
Qi Waner, who was in a better mood, said happily, “Wait for me for a while. I’ll send you the information when I’ve found it.”
About half an hour later, she called back and apologized. “I’m sorry, it took a little longer this time, but this guy has done too many immoral things. By the way, I checked on his son, and all the information has been sent to your mailbox.”
“Thank you for your hard work!” Qin Haodong said. With such a top hacker as a helper, it was much easier to do things.
“It’s no use thanking me verbally. Just remember to treat me to dinner tomorrow.”
Then, Qi Waner hung up the phone.
Qin Haodong opened his computer and checked his mailbox. Qi Waner had found hundreds of pages of information. After a brief glance, he realized that Zhu Hao was greedy for a reason. It turned out that his father was even greedier.
He had 16 houses, 9 lovers, 8 cars, and tens of millions of deposits in every bank. However, this guy really knew how to hide his property. Only two of his houses were in the south of the Yangtze River. The rest had been purchased outside the city. Only a computer expert like Qi Waner could have discovered this.
Zhu Hao had also done a lot of bad things. He was his father’s money-gathering tool who asked for bribes everywhere. When someone refused to submit to him, Zhu Baiwen used his power to suppress them. Once, a medium-sized pharmaceutical company called Baishun Pharmaceutical Company had been forced to withdraw from the pharmaceutical market because it had offended Zhu Baiwen and his son.
At the same time, the guy hired bodyguards to fight around. They bullied the weak and looted women. Their evil deeds were countless.
Qi Waner had collected very detailed information. There was a lot of evidence to prove each of his crimes. As long as these things were handed over to the relevant department, even without an investigation, he would be directly convicted.
After reading the information, Qin Haodong sneered. It seemed that Zhu Hao and his father’s good days had come to an end.
In a small conference room, Zhu Baiwen was sitting opposite Li Changzhi while reporting on his work seriously. He had gotten good at sucking up to others after so many years in the officialdom. Thus, he knew very well what the important person in front of him cared about the most.
“Mayor Li, the best thing about our Drug Administration is that we are free from corruption. I am the first one to set an example. I’ve never accepted a penny from any enterprises. Everything I do is meant to serve the people of our country…”
Just as he was speaking, his saliva flying and his spirit bulging, the door opened and Wang Rubing came in.
Li Changzhi took a look at his secretary. Although only a dozen days had passed, he was very satisfied with this steady and capable girl.
He knew very well that Wang Rubing would not have interfered with the report unless something important had happened.
“Mayor Li, I just received some information. I think it’s necessary to show it to you now.”
Wang Rubing put a stack of papers on Li Changzhi’s desk.
Li Changzhi flipped through the documents quickly. The more he looked at them, the gloomier his face became. At last, his face was filled with anger.
Zhu Baiwen, who was sitting opposite him awkwardly, was wondering if his report should go on. At the same time, he was very surprised. He didn’t know what Wang Rubing had brought. Why was Li Changzhi so angry after seeing it?
Just as he wondered what to do, Li Changzhi flung the papers in front of him and said sternly, “You two-faced, hypocritical bastard! Look what you have done!”
Ju Baiwen was shocked. Just moments ago, he had been appreciating his report. Why had he suddenly gotten angry?
The answer should be in that stack of papers. He took them and looked at them. The more he looked, the paler his face became. Finally, he collapsed directly on the chair.
“Mayor Li, I… I…”
Ju Bowen stuttered for a long time, but did not utter a complete word. He wanted to defend himself and shirk the responsibility, but the evidence was so sufficient that he couldn’t find any excuses.
Many things he did were very secret. He really did not understand how he had been discovered. Had Li Changzhi instructed a special department to investigate him?
Wang Rubing added, “Mayor Li, this is the latest video recorded.”
Then, she turned on her cell phone and Zhu Hao’s disgusting face appeared on the screen.
“I’m my father’s only son, so I represent him… If you want to survive in the pharmaceutical industry, you must stay connected to our family. Otherwise, you will be out of the game before you know it… ”
After watching this video, Zhu Baiwen finally realized how he had been discovered. Now, he felt like strangling his son, who had dug a pit for his father. This fool, who had gone straight to Qin Haodong for the formula, had been videotaped. He was pursuing money like crazy!
Li Changzhi told Wang Rubing, “Call someone to take him away and inform the police that his son should be arrested and brought to justice along with him.”
Zhu Baiwen went deathly pale. He immediately regretted everything immensely. Unfortunately, no one could turn back time. If he had known that things would end like this, he wouldn’t have let them go this far.
Soon, he was handcuffed by the arriving disciplinary staff and taken out of the conference room.
Meanwhile, Zhu Hao left Lin’s Group. He hated Qin Haodong so much that he drove to the Drug Administration, hoping that his father could teach that ignorant guy a good lesson.
Qin Haodong had dared to humiliate him. Was he pursuing his own demise? He imagined Qin Haodong kneeling before him and begging him.
However, Zhu Baiwen wasn’t there when he reached the Drug Administration. The secretary told him that he had gone to a meeting. Zhu Hao didn’t leave. Instead, he sat in his office and waited. He would not give up until Qin Haodong got punished.
After waiting for half an hour, the door of the office was opened.
“Dad, you’re back at last. Listen, today we must punish that boy named Qin…”
Before Zhu Hao could finish speaking, he looked up and saw that it was not his father, Ju Baiwen, who had walked in, but two policemen in uniforms. It happened to be the policemen who had caught him yesterday when he had been driving naked.
Thus, he said discontentedly, “What are you doing here? Wasn’t everything over yesterday? I paid the fine!”
“It’s not about your bare-ass driving this time. You can run naked after you get sent to prison!”
The two policemen walked forward and handcuffed Zhu Hao directly before taking him to the police station.
“Let me go. Do you know who I am? My father is Jubaiwen.”
Zhu Hao still tried to throw his weight around by using his father’s name.
One of the policemen sneered, “Of course we know who your father is. You can get together with him when you get sent to prison.”
“What? Did you just say that my dad was caught, too?”
Zhu Hao asked in horror.
He couldn’t do anything except drink and hit on women. His father was his greatest support. If Ju Baiwen was caught, he would be completely done for.
“Your father has not only been captured, but he will surely be sentenced longer than you. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. You are going to spend the rest of your life in prison for the immoral things you and your father have done.”
The policeman stopped talking to him and pushed him directly into the patrol wagon. He was taken away as the alarm bell rang.
Meanwhile, at Luo’s Group, after finishing the work at hand, Luo Jin remembered the issue of the Blood Revival Oral Liquid’s formula and wondered how his precious son had done.
He knew Luo Chengming’s temper very well, but he only had one son, so he would inherit his career in the future. He had to train his son, which was why he had entrusted Luo Chengming with this issue.
He dialed Luo Chengming’s number and asked, “Chengming, how’s the thing going?”
