China Dings Ai Weiwei for 2.4 Million in Tax


The name of his company is, Beijing Fake Cultural Development Ltd. It’s owned by his wife and with a company name like that, the government won’t hesitate to ding him. Ai mentions that he’s merely a designer but the government is proceeding anyway. Ai mentions, “But they told me: ‘If the country says you have evaded taxes, then you must have evaded them. Why don’t you lose hope? This country will never change its ways.’” (Reuters – Ai Weiwei Taxes)
