Police chief helped drug dealers: cops

(Global Times)

08:39, November 29, 2012

The former deputy mayor and police chief of Yingde, Guangdong Province, is being investigated for allegedly protecting known drug dealers including his brother and former classmate.

In September two local police officers accused their superior, Zheng Beiquan, of interfering with a police investigation after a drug bust at a local hotel. Police said they found nearly two kilograms of drugs and rounded up 175 people during a raid on the hotel in March.

The drugs seized during the hotel raid included Ketamine, methamphetamines and ecstasy.

Online posts in September detailed Zheng's interference in the case. The authors were said to be Xie Longsheng and Zhu Yingzhong, both of whom worked for the Yingde public security bureau.

The discipline inspection committee of the city of Qingyuan, which administrates Yingde, announced on its website Monday that Zheng is under investigation and is suspected of violating the law.

Xie has denied being an author of the post but in interviews with Nandu Daily he corroborated the online accusations against Zheng.

Xie said the drug squad reported the hotel drug bust to Zheng the morning after it occurred but he failed to follow proper procedures. Xie claims that Zheng later tried to have his brother, friend and others released from detention. Zheng also continued to interfere with the investigators' work, said Xie.
