32m home survives wrecking ball The former vice president Zeng Qinghong is known in China as the most important organiser behind a loose faction of ''princelings'' children from leading revolutionary families and is said to have brokered the surprise deal that anointed Xi Jinping to be the likely next president of China.
Mr Zeng has a son called Zeng Wei, who is understood to have married a Beijing Dance Academy graduate oakley splice sunglasses called Jiang Mei, whose names correspond with those on the transfer documents of the Point Piper mansion. Yesterday the Herald asked the Sydney lawyer for Zeng Wei, the Point Piper property owner, whether his client was the son of Zeng Qinghong, the former Chinese vice president. ''I believe so,'' said the lawyer, John Comino, who was the mayor of Woollahra, after declining several times to reveal site oakley the owners' identity. Mr Comino said he has little direct contact with the couple: ''I can't contact them directly in China.'' Woollahra Council last night refused to approve the demolition and construction of the new home. It was the third attempt by the couple to get their plans through council. They will now appeal to the Land and Environment Court. The business affairs of children of Communist Party officials are a sensitive topic in China. Discussion is banned from domestic media and heavily censored on the internet. Apart from Mr Comino, other representatives of the Sydney mansion owners declined to clarify their identity. ''People just want to maintain their privacy, as everyone does I guess,'' said Gavan Slaughter, a spokesman for the family, who helps supervise architectural work at the Point Piper oakley apparel clearance property. ''[Mr Zeng] is a very pleasant oakley racing jacket gentleman,'' said the architect, Stephen Gergely. ''I met him several times during the stages of this discussion. He is a developer.
'' Mr Gergely declined to say more. A neighbour said the couple had two sons who were going to be educated in Sydney and would return to China for university. The accounting firm acting for the couple, Mitchell Partners, said ''we never talk to him directly'', referring to Mr Zeng.
