09:17, April 19, 2012

BEIJING, April 18 (Xinhua) -- Over 1,600 police officers have been relieved of their duties for violating a list of rules introduced in 2003 to regulate police behavior, the Ministry of Public Security said Wednesday.

In addition, nearly 600 police officers have been punished in relation to unnatural deaths of suspects in police custody, the ministry said, adding that 1.12 billion yuan (177.7 million U.S. dollars) in cash that was illegally confiscated by police officers was retrieved.

More than 3,400 police vehicles and 5,800 license plates that had been appropriated for private use were also recovered.

In 2003, the ministry issued five new rules for cops nationwide, forbidding them from using handguns in violation of regulations, drinking while carrying their weapons, drunk driving, drinking while on duty and gambling.

The ministry has been making efforts to forbid cops from taking bribes, imposing fines at will and co-operating entertainment venues as part of a special campaign that began in 2008.
