President of the PRC from 1959-1968, vice-chairman of the Chinese Communist Party from 1956-1968, and once the acknowledged successor to Mao Zedong, Liu Shaoqi became the main target of the Cultural Revolution. In 1966 a mass campaign was launched attacking Deng Xiaoping and Liu Shaoqi as bourgeois reactionaries, with Liu labelled as 'China's Khrushchev'. An investigation into Liu's alleged subversive activities resulted in a 1968 report on the '. . crimes of the traitor, spy and renegade Liu Shaoqi'.
