Hello, and welcome to another edition of Frontline, the features segment brought to you by China Radio International. I'm your host, Wu Jia.

Our story today is about a couple. The husband, Yao Changrong, says he has been plagued by disasters throughout his life. Several years ago, he injured his head in a car accident and had to have a piece of his skull removed. Since then, his head has been very vulnerable to impact. Yet one day in 2004, his wife grabbed a hard object and dealt a smashing blow to his head. What had happened to make her so angry? Let's learn more from our reporter, Yang Lei.


Though four years have passed, Yao Changrong remembers the scene like it was yesterday.

"She held up something to smash my face. I hurried to hold it off with my left hand. She then pounded it on my left hand, which had been swollen for seven days."

Yao Changrong said his wife was well aware that his head was vulnerable to the touch. Her action at the time exposed him to mortal danger. What had made his wife fly into such a rage? His wife, Gao Weiping, explains her motive.

"In those days, he had been carrying on with another woman. But I still tried my best to turn him around and keep my family intact."

The couple's marriage had hit a snag as their mutual affection ground to a halt. This was disturbing enough. Yet around the same time, another disaster befell Gao Weiping.

Reporter: Gao owned 35 percent of the shares in a transport company. As a supervisor on the board of directors, she was in charge of the company's financial affairs. One day, when she went to the local industry and commerce department to inquire about her company, she was surprised to learn that her own shares had been transferred to someone else without rhyme or reason.

"I found that as a shareholder, I had lost all of my stock ownership."

The company had been registered at a total value of two million yuan. Gao's 35 percent stake was worth 700,000 yuan. Yet this stake had been made out to someone else through the local industry and commerce department. The register showed that the transfer had been approved by the company's board of directors; Gao's own signature even appeared on related documents. This was too much for Gao Weiping.

"This really worked me up. I said I was a shareholder and I had never signed it. How come my stock ownership was gone? The staff suggested 'Why don't you just go and make a handwriting verification?'"

The local judicial appraisal center examined the handwriting. It concluded that the signatures appearing on the documents, including a resolution adopted by the shareholders and the transfer agreement, were not Gao Weiping's genuine signatures.

Who was the impostor? Why had he or she forged Gao's signature to steal her stock? The person turned out to be none other than Gao's husband, Yao Changrong. Gao says that she and her husband founded the company together.
