Bao Zheng (包拯; 5 March 999 – 3 July 1062), commonly known as Bao Gong (包公; ‘Lord Bao’), was a Chinese politician during the reign of Emperor Renzong in China’s Song Dynasty. Bao Zheng was known to have initiated many legal reforms to better hear the grievances of the people. He also unhesitantly sentenced tens of corrupted officers. Bao Zheng’s name and titles are synonymous with criminal justice and upright governance. Pure, orthodox and incorruptible, Judge Bao has been serving as the preeminent embodiment of justice for almost a thousand years. Tackling abuse of power and corruption as endemic in the courts and bureaucratic service, Judge Bao imposed the rule of law even on the emperor.
During his twenty-five years in civil service, Bao consistently demonstrated extreme honesty and uprightness, with actions such as sentencing his own uncle, impeaching an uncle of Emperor Renzong’s favourite concubine and punishing powerful but corrupt aristocratic families. His appointment from 1057 to 1058 as the prefect of Song’s capital Kaifeng, where he initiated a number of changes to better hear the grievances of the people, made him a legendary figure. During his years in office, he gained the honorific title Justice Bao Qingtian (包青天) due to his ability to help peasants overcome corruption.
Bao Zheng was born into a scholar family in Shenxian, Hefei, Luzhou (present day Feidong County near Hefei, Anhui). As Bao grew up among low working class, he well understood people’s hardships, hated corruption and strongly desired for justice. At the age of 29, Bao passed the highest-level imperial examination and became qualified as a Jinshi. Bao was appointed as magistrate of Jianchang County, but he deferred embarking on his official career for a decade in order to care for his elderly parents and faithfully observe proper mourning rites after their deaths.
After the passing of his parents, Bao Zheng, then 39, was appointed magistrate of Tianchang County not far from his hometown. It was here that Bao first established his reputation as an astute judge. According to an anecdote, a man once reported that his ox’s tongue had been sliced out. Bao told him to return and slaughter the ox for sale. Soon another man arrived in court and accused the first man of privately slaughtering a “beast of burden”, an offense punishable by a year of penal servitude. Bao bellowed: “Why did you cut his ox’s tongue and then accuse him?” In shock, the culprit had to confess.
