Gu Nianzhi was slightly relieved .
She was actually a very sensitive person, and Huo Shaoheng wasn’t someone who liked to show PDA in public .
Gu Nianzhi didn’t understand why Huo Shaoheng would suddenly do such a thing .
She glanced sideways at Huo Shaoheng . Her beautiful and expressive big eyes seemed to show her bewilderment .
On the other hand, Huo Shaoheng, appeared even calmer than Lina .
After all, Lina’s calmness was a form of restraint, but Huo Shaoheng’s calmness had already seeped into his bones and become a part of his personality .
Gu Nianzhi couldn’t continue to dwell on this issue .
After all, this was someone else’s territory . Even if she was a little displeased, she had to restrain it .
Gu Nianzhi sat up straight and again wanted to speak to Lina, who was next to her .
At this moment, Lina’s phone vibrated .
She took out her phone and swiped it open to take a look . An expression of surprise suddenly appeared on her face .
Gu Nianzhi thought she was already used to Lina’s emotionless, poker face, so when she saw Lina’s surprised expression, she was even more surprised than Lina .
Raising an eyebrow, Gu Nianzhi asked reflexively, “What’s wrong? Did something happen?”
Lina quickly regained her composure and said to Vladimir, “Boss, the headquarters have found the client of this mafia operation . ”
Vladimir turned to look behind him . “What did you say?! They found him so quickly?”
Lina said calmly, “Well, it’s not that hard to find out . If you can’t find out directly, you can check the bank accounts of the mafia . Unless the clients pay in cash, you can discover their client through the bank . ”
After a pause, Lina said, “We were lucky this time . For this exchange, the other party didn’t use cash, but transferred money through the bank . ”
” … Where did the money come from?” Afraid that he would miss a word, Vladimir held his breath and listened intently .
They were talking in Russian .
However, Gu Nianzhi was the only one in the jeep who didn’t understand Russian .
The other four people in the jeep not only spoke Russian, but were also very proficient in it .
Huo Shaoheng also pricked up his ears to listen to Vladimir and Lina .
They had spoken directly in front of Huo Shaoheng, so they must have done him a favor on purpose .
After all, this person had attempted to kill Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi . Huo Shaoheng was also very curious about the client behind the scenes .
Lina raised her phone and showed it to Vladimir . “This is other evidence transferred from our people . This means that apart from indirect evidence, we also have directly incriminating evidence . ”
Vladimir took the phone and glanced at it . Suddenly, his eyes widened . He pointed at Lina’s phone and stammered, “Such a large sum of money?!” It was practically enough to buy a large plane!
“You’re that valuable?” Vladimir said sourly . He glanced at Huo Shaoheng and mumbled, “The bounty on your head is even higher than mine . ”
Huo Shaoheng laughed . “I can transfer this high priced bounty to you without taking a single cent . ”
“Major General Huo, what do you want to transfer to our boss ” The middle-aged driver in the front turned around and interrupted at the right time to diffuse the tension between Huo Shaoheng and Vladimir .
Vladimir snorted and glared at the middle-aged driver . “Focus on driving . How does the transfer have anything to do with you?”
The middle-aged driver shrunk his neck . “I was just asking . ”
Huo Shaoheng said gently, “The bounty on his head . Your boss thinks his head is worthless, so he wants to trade with me . ”
“Hey! Did I say I wanted to trade? ! You’re more capable than me, so I accept that the bounty for your head is higher than mine . ” Vladimir lowered his head to continue reading the accounts, and his eyes gradually narrowed .
“Major General Huo, are you related to the Xie family who moved to Europe in their early years? ”
“The Xie family from Europe? You mean the Xie family from the Huaxia Empire? ” Huo Shaoheng was also a little surprised . His heart sank slightly, and his eyes dimmed .
“Yes, this Xie family is also famous in the KGB . ” Vladimir frowned . “If it was them, many things would make sense . ”
For example, other than the Xie family, he couldn’t think of anyone who could afford to hire the mafia and use different tactics to deal with them in Europe .
For the Xie family, they could easily help an ordinary middle-class family to rise to a higher level .
But how could it be the Xie family?
Huo Shaoheng frowned slightly and reached out to Vladimir . “Let me see the message on your phone . ”
Vladimir shook his head . “You don’t believe me, do you?
Huo Shaoheng didn’t say anything . He took Lina’s phone from Vladimir and tapped it a few times before logging in . He saw the news from the KGB headquarters .
Based on the available and historical information, the KGB’s intelligence and analysis department had already determined that the client behind the mafia gunmen was the Xie family .
Huo Shaoheng read the text quietly and said in English, ” … The client’s fees were channeled into a trust fund controlled by the Xie family . ”
They probably didn’t even know about the Xie family’s property .
In order to treat the Xie family’s descendants equally, and to familiarize the Xie family’s descendants with the rules of society, the Xie family’s older generation of parents set up a lot of trust funds and reached an agreement with the school . Through the trust fund, a batch of sports equipment was donated to the school every year, so that the students here would no longer be locked up in the ivory tower, deaf to the outside world, and only thinking about the sage .
“Tthat’s right! The fact that the trust fund controlled by the Xie family was channeled to this mafia is enough to prove that they are the masterminds behind the attempted assasination!”
Vladimir clapped his hands and concluded in English .
Gu Nianzhi’s heart skipped a beat .
She knew about Huo Shaoheng’s relationship with the Xie family .
Huo Shaoheng’s grandmother, Xie Ziyan, who had passed away more than a decade ago, was the biological sister of the most senior members of the Xie family .
Xie Ziyan had kept a low profile throughout her life and rarely appeared in public . Therefore, only a few of her family members knew about her family background .
However, it was impossible for the KGB not to know about Huo Shaoheng’s relationship with the Xie family . If they didn’t even know about it, it could only be said that the KGB had declined over the years . .
Because Gu Nianzhi knew about Huo Shaoheng’s relationship with the Xie family, she definitely didn’t think that the people who were after her and Huo Shaoheng were members of the Xie family .
Gu Nianzhi shook her head . “No way, is that the only reason?”
“What do you mean by ‘that’s the only reason’?” Vladimir retorted . “That’s the most direct motive . Whether you value a person or not depends on the direction of the bank account . ”
“Because only money doesn’t lie . The more you spend, the more emotionally attached you will become for the target you’re spending it on . In the end, even if you spend all your money, you won’t be able to bear to part with the things you’ve already spent money on . ”
Gu Nianzhi simply wanted to chuckle when she heard that .
Her slender neck looking like a White Swan, she raised her head .
“Vladimir, money can lie too, like fake money . ” Rejecting Vladimir’s analogy, Gu Nianzhi retorted first .
Vladimir’s eyes widened . “You’re arguing with me!”
“I’m not arguing with you . I’m just trying to reason with you . ” Gu Nianzhi crossed her arms and leaned against the back of Vladimir’s car seat . She smiled and said, “Also, the only evidence you guys found is that the money came from the Xie family’s trust fund, right? Can you prove that the person who transferred the money from the Xie family’s trust fund to the Mafia is definitely a member of the Xie family?”
“Even if he isn’t a member of the Xie family, he at least has to be their closest relative or a trusted subordinate . This kind of person is no different from a member of the Xie family, right?” Trying to argue with Gu Nianzhi, Vladimir was still stubbornly refusing to back down .
“You can’t say that . ” Gu Nianzhi leaned back into her seat and shrugged . “Vladimir, once a trust fund is established, it will only be controlled by the terms of the trust fund and not by the person who established the trust fund . This is the basic legal basis for a trust fund . “So you’re going to insist that because the money was transferred from the Xie family’s trust fund, the person behind the scenes must be a member of the Xie family . There are too many loopholes in this statement, and it’s also blind to the law . ”
Vladimir was so angry at Gu Nianzhi that the hair on his face rose up .
“Even if it’s not a member of the Xie family, it’s someone related to them! Find out when the Xie family’s trust fund was established, and who the financiers and beneficiaries are . ” Vladimir immediately gave the order .
Huo Shaoheng looked at Lina’s phone without saying a word . After a long while, he returned the phone to Lina . He then took out his own phone and called his uncle in the Xie family .
