Chinese police crack 101,700 drug-related cases


08:27, May 17, 2012

BEIJING - Chinese police cracked 101,700 drug-related criminal cases and captured 112,400 related suspects in 2011, the National Narcotics Control Commission (NNCC) said Wednesday.

Police last year seized 7.08 tonnes of heroin and 14.32 tonnes of crystal methamphetamine, commonly known as "ice," a year-on-year increase of 32.1 percent and 44.9 percent, respectively, according to an annual report on drug control released by the NNCC.

Police also confiscated 1,834.78 tonnes of chemicals used to manufacture narcotics last year, the report said.

The report said 171,000 people underwent quarantined rehabilitation in 2011, while 97,000 people were required to go to community rehabilitation centers.

Zhang Xinfeng, vice minister of Public Security and vice director of the NNCC, said that although China has made headway in its crackdown on drugs, the country has been increasingly influenced by international drug-related crime.

In 2011, Chinese police seized 5.1 tonnes of heroin and 7.9 tonnes of "ice" originating from the "Golden Triangle" region of southeast Asia, Zhang said.

Drug control efforts in 2012 will focus on reintegrating drug addicts into society, the NNCC report said, adding that the employment rate for rehabilitated people should reach 30 percent.

In 2011, 40,000 people found jobs after undergoing rehabilitation, according to the report.

The NNCC's annual drug control report has been issued since 1998.
