Guo Wengui (Chinese: 郭文贵; born 10 May 1970 (self claim) or 5 October 1968), also known under the names Guo Wen Gui, Guo Haoyun (Chinese: 郭浩云), and Miles Kwok, is a Chinese billionaire businessman who later became a political activist and controls Beijing Zenith Holdings (via proxy people Li Lin and Jiang Yuehua), and other assets.

He came to the United States in late 2014 after learning he was going to be arrested after allegations against him including bribing, kidnapping, money laundering, fraud and rape, and is subsequently subject to an Interpol Red Notice.[better source needed.
Despite Guo's claims of being a whistle-blower, his statements were unable to be verified by newspapers such as The New York Times. He is the founder of expose revolution.
Guo was born in Shen County, Shandong, China. He is the seventh of eight children in the family.
He began his business career in Zhengzhou, before moving to Beijing to secure various construction deals during the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
His most famous asset was the Pangu Plaza, an Olympic torch-shaped condominium residence built prior to the Beijing games.
Guo, long prominent in real estate development and investment circles, came to fame in 2015 after a lengthy investigative report by Caixin media, controlled by Hu Shuli, was released, detailing Guo's political connections, business dealings, and hard-ball tactics against former rivals.
Guo responded by claiming Hu defamed him and responded with a set of personal accusations against Hu, claiming Hu had a romantic entanglement with his business rival.
Guo was believed to have left China sometime in 2015; since then he is believed to have been shuttling between Europe and the United States.
He opened a Twitter account in early 2017, frequently criticizing individuals within the Chinese establishment.
He has reserved particular scorn for He Jintao (not to be confused with former Paramount Leader Hu Jintao), the son of former Central Commission for Discipline Inspection secretary He Guoqiang.
Many officials with whom he was said to have ties have fallen under the dragnet of the anti-corruption campaign under Xi Jinping, including Ma Jian, the former deputy director of Chinese National Security Bureau, and Zhang Yue, the former Political and Legal Affairs Secretary of Hebei.
While generally supportive of General Secretary Xi Jinping, Guo has characterized parts of the corruption campaign as a political witch hunt.
From the beginning of 2017, Guo is in self-imposed exile in New York City, where he owns a 82 million USD apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, overlooking Central Park.
He has continued to conduct a political agenda to bring attention to alleged corruption in the Chinese political system from his New York home.
In November 2018, Guo put the apartment up for sale for $67 million USD.
Guo also started a campaign of exposing corruptions of some of the highest officials of China on his YouTube and Twitter channel through live monologues. On April 20, Guo's supposedly 3-hour live interview with VOA was abruptly terminated by VOA during the interview.
In August 2018, several Hong Kong media, such as Ming Pao and South China Morning Post reported that Hong Kong Police had frozen the assets of Guo family, accused of money laundering under the name of Guo's daughter Guo Mei. In March 2019, his mother died in China.
Guo Wengui (Miles Kwok), who is being sought by the Chinese government in a bid to silence his disclosures of high-level corruption and intelligence activity.
Guo has unloaded a barrage of allegations of corruption by people in the highest levels of China's ruling Communist Party, which include claims that the party's own head of anti-corruption activities, Wang Qishan, has unclean hands.
Guo claims that Wang's family secretly controls one of the largest conglomerates in China, the New York Times has reported.
Guo disclosed that he was imprisoned in China after the 1989 pro-democracy protests in Tiananmen Square and spent 22 months in prison.
Chinese police also shot his brother, who later died.
Guo Wengui sits in self-imposed exile in a $68 million apartment overlooking Central Park.
The billionaire Chinese property tycoon has been waging a media war against his homeland’s government.
Guo says he’s trying to stamp out corruption and graft, but China accuses him of the very same thing.
Since January, Guo has taken to YouTube and Twitter making corruption allegations against top Chinese officials.
Some of them have been disproven, some can’t be proven, but some have turned out to be accurate.
Guo cites the retirement of China’s anti-corruption czar, Wang Qishan, as his most recent victory.
Guo alleged Wang and his family made millions in mysterious business dealings.
Wang did not respond to the allegations and was never investigated nor charged.
China issued an arrest warrant for Guo but does not have an extradition treaty with the U.S., which has shown no interest in detaining him.
Guo, for his part, is hoping the U.S. will grant him asylum and says he can be of use to the Trump Administration.
The White House hasn’t commented on Guo’s case but his position as a dissident who may have access to insider information may make him a useful bargaining chip.
