It turns out that the story on Huang Ju's demise may be erroneous. The official press has not reported on it, which is unusual if he really did pass away. In addition, it carried the following piece on Minister of Supervision Li Zhilun's passing. Note, the second paragraph states that Huang Ju expressed his condolences. My speculation is that perhaps Huang and Li stayed in the same hospital, and rumors got out that someone important passed away. People then just assumed that it was Huang Ju, but in fact it was Li, who is on the standing committee of the central discipline and inspection committee, the party's anti-corruption watchdog. Huang is also a standing committee member (changwei), but of the much more powerful Politburo.

Why does it took ten days before Xinhua gave Li Zhilun's death a formal notice?
