34 found selling exam cheat devices

POLICE in the northeastern city of Songyuan have detained 34 people suspected of selling high-tech devices to students to help them cheat in the country's make-or-break college entrance exam held from Sunday to Tuesday.

Police uncovered 14 cases and confiscated 683 devices, such as receivers and earpieces, said Lai Jianhua, deputy secretary-general of the Songyuan municipal government in Jilin Province, yesterday.

"The city authorities are working with the Education Ministry and the provincial authorities to further investigate the cases," he said.

Two female teachers from the No. 1 High School of the city's Fuyu County were charged with selling 27 cheating devices, including receivers, earpieces, chargers and batteries, to parents of students and made a profit of about 400,000 yuan (US$58,800), police said.

They could be jailed for up to three years if convicted.
