Hunter Biden listed as director of state backed Chicom company
South China Post:
Hunter Biden, the son of former United States vice-president Joe Biden, is listed as a director of a state-backed equity fund in China, but public records do not appear to support claims by US President Donald Trump that he used his father’s connections to secure Chinese capital for his investments.Hunter Biden is reported to have invested in the company two years ago. Why would they remove his picture? Was the investment a result of $1.5 Chicom funding of his private equity firm?
Trump on Thursday called on China to investigate Biden, now a leading Democratic presidential candidate, and his son, alleging the younger Biden used his position of influence to secure US$1.5 billion in funding from the government-owned Bank of China for a private equity firm he was involved in and made millions in the process.
Filings in China’s National Enterprise Credit Information Publicity System database show that Hunter Biden is listed as a director of BHR Equity Investment Fund Management Company, a company incorporated in December 2013 with registered capital of 30 million yuan, or about US$4 million at the current exchange rate.
The private equity firm reshuffled its board of directors on September 18, according to filings, but the younger Biden’s role at the company remained unchanged. All pictures of Hunter have been removed from the BHR website.
