Wu on the move: propagating the 'massline'?

Zu in Spain
Wu Yingjie, one of the deputy secretaries of the Tibet Autonomous Region had 'disappeared' from Lhasa for several months.
A couple of times (last in December), I reported about the purpose of his long stay in Nagchu.
He was sent (by Xi Jingping and Yu Zhengsheng) to the most restive prefecture of the Region to implement the 'massline' campaign so dear to the Chinese President.
Wu has now reappeared ... in another continent, again with a fire-fighter job.
He has been spotted in Spain where he has tried to convince some Spanish parliamentarians that the decision of the Spanish Court to indict former President Jiang Zemin, former Premier Li Peng and others is not good, not good at all ...for Spain.
China is a Big Power; it is better not to irritable China!
One can understand that Beijing does not appreciate at all the Court's decision, though the new leadership does not seem to know what to do about it!
The question is: will Wu be more successful in Spain than in Driru and  Nagchu?
Till now, the 'massline' campaign has not solved any problem, on the contrary.
Wu is also planning to visit France in the next few days.
What will he explain to the French? That his Nagchu's mission was a failure?
