Jackie Chan's son detained in Beijing drug bust

BEIJING (AP) — Hong Kong action superstar Jackie Chan's actor-son Jaycee Chan has been detained in Beijing on drug-related charges, the latest high-profile celebrity to be ensnared in one of China's biggest anti-drug crackdowns in two decades.

Jaycee Chan, 31, was detained last Thursday together with the 23-year-old Taiwanese movie star Kai Ko, Beijing police said late Monday on their official microblog, identifying them only by their surnames, ages and nationalities. It was unclear why the detentions were announced several days later.

Police said both actors tested positive for marijuana and admitted using the drug, and that 100 grams of it were taken from Chan's home.

Jaycee Chan's management, M'Stones International, apologized to the public on his behalf for the "social impact" caused in a statement on their website. It said they would "supervise his rehabilitation and help him return to the right path."

Several celebrities have been detained on drug charges following a declaration in June by President Xi Jinping that illegal drugs should be wiped out and that offenders would be severely punished. In Beijing alone, more than 7,800 people have been caught in the crackdown, police said.

Chinese state broadcaster CCTV aired footage of a police search of the younger Chan's home in Beijing in which he is depicted, his face pixelated, showing officers where he stashed bags of marijuana. Police said they acted on a tipoff from the public.

Chan is accused of accommodating drug users, an offense that carries a maximum sentence of three years' imprisonment — a far more serious charge than that of drug consumption. Two other people detained in the same case were accused of selling drugs while Ko is accused of drug consumption.

China named the elder Chan an anti-drug ambassador in 2009. Ko, the Taiwanese star, was part of an anti-drug campaign two years ago, CCTV reported, showing footage of the campaign in which he joins other celebrities in a chorus declaring: "I don't use drugs."

On Tuesday, Ko was shown on CCTV, his face pixelated, tearfully apologizing to his fans and family.

"I feel very regretful, very sorry to all the people who support me... I've been a very bad example, I've made a very big mistake," Ko said. In a statement online, his management company, Star Ritz Productions, said Ko had received a 14-day detention and also apologized to the public.

Ko, whose real name is Ko Chen-tung, became a sensation after his 2011 film "You Are the Apple of My Eye," a box-office hit in Taiwan. He won Best New Performer award for his role in the coming-of-age movie at the Golden Horse awards in Taiwan, considered the most prestigious in Chinese-language cinema.

He played the boyfriend of one of the protagonists in China-produced "Tiny Times 3.0," which appealed to young female audiences and knocked "Transformers 4" off the No. 1 spot as the most watched film after its release in the mainland last month.

Illegal drug use has ballooned in China in recent decades, after being virtually eradicated following the 1949 communist revolution. Narcotics began to reappear with the loosening of social controls in the late 1980s.

In more recent years, rising wealth and greater personal freedoms have been accompanied by a growing popularity of methamphetamines and the party drugs Ecstasy and ketamine. They are often bought on social media forums and consumed in nightclubs, leading to periodic police crackdowns.

Ko Chen-Tung and Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming) on the 14th were arrested at a foot bath shop on drug charges. Public Security even seized over 100 grams of marijuana from Cho Ming's home. Finally he was held on "criminal detention". When Cho Ming got into trouble, Jackie Chan was promoting a film in London, England. When he heard the news he dropped everything to fly to Beijing and applied for visitation of Cho Ming with his lawyers to the authority. However according to Mainland investigation procedures, before the official trial the authority could decline family visitation. Even Jackie Chan was no exception. So far he still has not seen his son yet. 

After being turned away at the detention house, Jackie Chan was caught discussing how to save Cho Ming. Jackie Chan propped his head up and looked sorrowful and slightly thinner. Since Cho Ming's drug troubles arose, Jackie Chan has refused to take any call and only occasionally sent text messages to friends to stay in touch. Around 7PM he finally broke his silent on Weibo. He blamed himself for his son's mistake. "First, thank you to all the friends for your concern. When my son Fong Cho Ming did something like this, I am very enraged and very surprised. As a public figure I am very ashamed. As a father my heart aches. His mother in particular is heartbroken! I hope young people would learn a lesson from Cho Ming and stay away from the dangers of drugs. Here, I want to say to Cho Ming: when you make a mistake, you have to accept the consequences. As your father, I am willing to face the road in the future with you. In the end, I have been a poor father and also have to take responsibility. I also deeply bow in apology on behalf of Cho Ming to the community and the general public. Thank you everyone!"

Jaycee Chan admits to taking drugs for eight yearsChinese police raided Jaycee Chan’s eight-storey mansion in Beijing
Jaycee Chan, the only son of Hong Kong star Jackie Chan, was arrested on Tuesday night together with Taiwanese actor Kai Ko for taking marijuana. The Chinese police have also found more than 100 grams of marijuana in Jaycee’s possession during a raid.
The process, which was recorded on video, saw the 31-year-old facing the interrogation unprepared and trembling while holding a box of marijuana.
Jackie has reportedly halted his activities and headed to Beijing yesterday to handle this matter. Yesterday, CCTV also released the news that Jaycee has admitted to using drugs for the past eight years.
If he is convicted of drug possession, he may face a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
In addition, the mansion which Jackie had gifted Jaycee caught the eyes of many in the video, as it was the first time the interior of the building was exposed.
Located at Dongzhimen, Beijing, the eight-storey infrastructure was designed by a famous Taiwanese interior designer Qiu Deguang and is now worth NT$800million (approximately S$33.8million), four times more its original value when Jackie first purchased the first floor in 2006.

 It was reported that Taiwanese authority has recently received a tip from the Beijing police that the source of Jaycee's stack may have come from a Taiwanese supplier.

According to Phoenix, Jaycee, who is currently in detention after using and keeping more than 110 gram marijuana in his Beijing residence, reportedly confessed that he obtained the drugs from an underground rapper known as "F".

Based on preliminary information from Beijing, Taiwanese police said that F, who performs in night clubs around Taiwan with his rap group, is also a prominent shareholder of two night clubs, which enabled him to meet a lot of mainstream celebrities, including Jaycee.

Reportedly, F already has a drug case in the past, but due to the lack of evidence and his family's strong military background, the police have decided to avoid pre-emptive crackdown.

The police are still seeking for more verification on the matter.

Following reports saying that Jaycee Chan has given the Beijing Police identities of celebrities involved in drugs that amounted up to 120 names, his manager has recently stepped up to quell the rumours.

According to Oriental Daily, on 22 August, Jaycee's manager released a statement saying that Jaycee did not sell out his friends and that he has already met with his lawyers.

In the statement, which was written seemingly as a note to Jaycee, his manager also wrote, "In recent years, there were lots of reports saying that you are disloyal to your friends. We have never expected you to stay true to your character but still ended up taking the blame, and our hearts ached for you."

"While you have to face the consequences of your behaviour, they hoped to fight for your basic legal rights. But you chose to give them up voluntarily because you were afraid people will misunderstand you even more. And yet you were still blamed for things you didn't do."

The manager also hinted that Jaycee's father Jackie Chan felt helpless as he was unable to help his own son.

Meanwhile, the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau clarified on Weibo that the 120 artiste drug user list was a rumour, saying that they only use facts for evidence and the laws as guidelines, and will investigate every case in accordance to the law.

The identities of the two women who were arrested with Taiwanese actor Kai Ko and Jaycee Chan, the only son of Hong Kong actor Jackie Chan, during a drug bust in Beijing have been revealed.

The two women, Chinese actress under Emperor Groupâs management Alice Li, and Joyce Chang, former Chinese member of Korean group RaNia, were in Jayceeâs house before being arrested at a foot reflexology centre.

Alice had acted in Chinese movie But Always, which also stars Nicholas Tse and Gao Yuanyuan and has yet to open in cinemas. Sponsors are worried that the drug scandal will cause her to be banned from the Chinese media industry like Jaycee and Kai.

Both Alice and Joyce were said to have pleaded with authorities for leniency and hoped their identities and actions will not be exposed.

In addition, Jaycee has reportedly been fined NT$25million (approximately S$1.06million) by the production unit of Chinese variety show 2 Days & 1 Night for missing a recording session last Monday after he was arrested.

Jayceeâs management agency MâStones International had already requested to stop collaborating with the production unit after the arrest and refunded the NT$7.4 million (approximately S$310,000) deposit. However, they asked for further compensation for âbeing unable to fulfil contractual termsâ.

Jayceeâs manager responded and said all sponsors and production units have been informed of the 31-year-oldâs arrest and MâStones International will settle all financial matters as Jaycee was the one at fault.

Jackie Chan and Lin Feng-jiao devastated over Jaycee Chan’s arrestThe couple are unable to visit their son, who was arrested 19 days ago, in the detention centre

Hong Kong actor Eric Tsang, who has known Jackie Chan for years, revealed that the latter and his wife Lin Feng-jiao have been crying after their son’s arrest for drug use as they miss him badly.

He also added at the recent Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am press conference in Dongguan, China that although Jackie had texted him, “Don’t worry, I will work hard like before,” Jackie and Feng-jiao are in fact devastated over Jaycee Chan’s predicament.

Jaycee, who admitted to taking drugs for eight years, has been arrested for 19 days. It is believed that he is still not allowed to see anyone except his lawyer, who visited him thrice.

His lawyer had previously shared that the 31-year-old is beginning to adapt to life in the detention centre and occasionally asks after his parents and Kai Ko, who was arrested together with him and released last Friday.

Speaking of Kai, Eric encourages everyone to give the 23-year-old a chance as “Kai is still a kid”.

The two have collaborated in movie Monster Hunt this year and Eric speculated Kai “had made the wrong move because he fell out of love. It is good that a scandal like this happened when they are young. The earlier it happens, the further they can go in future. This also serves as a warning to those in showbiz that a mistake not only affects your future, but your endorsements, family and fans too.”

Jaycee, who is still in detention, will reportedly face trial as early as the middle of September for his crimes. The 31-year-old has admitted to having consumed marijuana for eight years and is in an even worse position because he is seen to have been the provider of the drug for others such as Kai. The duo was arrested in Jaycee’s property. According to Chinese law, he faces a maximum of three years in prison, with only one chance of appealing if found guilty.
In light of the arrests, the spotlight has also been placed on those who are close to Jaycee and Kai, which is said to have brought about some changes in their schedules. Wilson Chen (also known as Chen Bo Lin) abruptly canceled an endorsement event whereas Sammo Hung is said to have banned his son, Timmy Hung, from visiting Beijing. Eason Chan’s Dalian concert, which is scheduled for Saturday, will go on.
Chinese actor Zhang Mo, who was arrested in a separate case for marijuana use, was released after a 14-day detention but a warrant of arrest has been issued as it is his second offence. Recent rumours have claimed that a name list which includes 120 of the rich and famous, including ten Hong Kong artistes that are on the watch list for drug-related offences were denied by authorities despite numerous calls for swift action to be taken against those on the list.Source

Kai Ko and Jaycee Chan continue to hog headlines even after a month after being busted for smoking marijuana. Kai was released from detention after a two-week stint but Jaycee remains in detention even after 31 days.
After getting arrested on August 14, marijuana was uncovered at Jaycee’s home and he admitted to providing a location for others to smoke it. He has also admitted to smoking marijuana for the past eight years.
Although no official word has been given on Jaycee’s situation, insiders say that he is likely to be sentenced mid-September and will likely face a jail term.
His parents, superstar Jackie Chan and Lin Feng Jiao are reportedly trying all means to get their son acquitted. Jaycee faces a maximum imprisonment of three years if convicted of his crimes.
The worried parents have only been able to speak to their son through their lawyer, the latter whom has met Jaycee thrice. He shared that Jaycee is facing the consequences with a calm heart and has asked after both his parents and Kai.
The parents have explained that they will respect the final decision made by the courts but are unable to give up on their son. They are said to have been anxiously holding meetings with lawyers in Beijing to build a case for Jaycee.
An insider revealed that despite their best efforts, the two may be facing an uphill task as China has announced war against corruption and drug-related offences this year. Jackie has since returned to his busy schedule but has avoided all questions pertaining to his son.Source

Singer-actor Jaycee Chan, who was detained last month for possessing and consuming marijuana, has been charged with allowing others to consume drugs last Wednesday. He was also formally arrested by Beijing Police yesterday.
Jaycee was previously detained with Taiwanese actor Kai Ko, who has been released on August 29.
It is believed that Jaycee can be detained for a maximum of 37 days as the court procedures in China take a long time. If there is no evidence gathered by then, he can be released.
Till date, the 31-year-old has been detained for 34 days and future investigation can take up to seven months. However, Jaycee’s charges are comparatively less serious and it will take at most two months to decide the verdict.
During detention, he was not allowed to meet his parents, Hong Kong actor Jackie Chan and Taiwanese actress Lin Feng-jiao, and only met his lawyer five times.
As to reports that Jackie has been trying to get his son acquitted, Jaycee’s manager clarified that was not the case and Jackie has no intentions of getting involved, while Feng-jiao remained in Hong Kong all this while.
While discussions are still ongoing with four product endorsements by Jaycee, namely for mantou (steamed buns), luggages, doors and mobile phones, his manager denied that Dove chocolate had changed the ambassador due to the drug saga, and explained their contract had already expired before the incident.
If convicted, Jaycee could be jailed up to three years.Source
