One day before Zhou Zhuohua (Xi Mihua) was arrested in Macau on November 27, Wenzhou Public Security announced in a high-profile manner that they approved the arrest and called for surrender. They also pointed out that Zhang Ningning, another backbone of the cross-border gambling criminal group, had been prosecuted by the Procuratorate.
Zhang Ningning’s identity has always been in doubt. The "Hong Kong 01" investigation found that she was originally from Hong Kong and had served as a senior executive in several mainland companies in Suncity.
The parents spoke for the first time, saying that their daughter was arrested in Wenzhou as early as July 2020. It was only a few days ago that they were involved in a gambling case. The family had not been able to visit for a year. Suncity hired a lawyer for her.
Zhang Ningning's parents directly admitted that her daughter was arrested in Wenzhou as early as July 2020, and her family had not been able to visit for a year.

Family members were arrested in July last year and only recently learned the reason for the arrest
Zhang Ningning, who was involved in the "Ximihua Case," was accused by the Wenzhou Municipal Public Security Bureau as a key member of a cross-border gambling criminal syndicate. In July 2020, the Public Security Bureau opened a case for investigation of her opening a casino and was prosecuted by the local procuratorate.

Suncity hired a lawyer's family to be unable to visit Wenzhou
"It's been more than a year now, and we haven't notified us." Mother Zhang pointed out that after Zhang Ningning was arrested last year, the family members have not received any official notifications. Only the lawyer came to the news. Knowing the reason for her arrest, "I know she is in Wenzhou, but I don't know where and to what extent she is in Wenzhou. I only learned of accusing her of operating a casino a few days ago."
Zhang's mother said that Zhang Ningning has worked in Suncity's subsidiaries for about five years. He used to work in Hong Kong and Macau offices. He was transferred to the group's Shenzhen company about two years ago.
However, she said that she didn't know the details of her daughter's work. She only heard about real estate. After her daughter's accident, the company also hired a lawyer for her: "We didn't know that she was arrested until the company called. She only said that she was fine and could come out soon. "
Mother Zhang also pointed out that in the first year Zhang Ningning was arrested, even the lawyer could not visit her.
The lawyer later gave the family clothes to Zhang Ningning, but after Zhang Mutuo's family arrived in Wenzhou, they could only ask the police to hand over the clothes on their behalf, and could not visit the detention center.
