Cheat teachers arrested

PROSECUTORS in Fuyu County of Songyuan City in northeast's China Jilin Province have ratified the arrest of two teachers who sold devices to students to help them cheat in the June 7-9 university entrance exam.

An accomplice was arrested for helping to hide the profits, the Procuratorial Daily reported yesterday.

Two teachers, Liu Yanhua and He Shujie, and their alleged accomplice, Yang Chun, were caught by police on June 5 while testing the devices.

Both Liu and He are teachers from the No. 1 High School of Fuyu County.

Yang didn't sell the devices but helped them keep 264,000 yuan (US$38,800) worth of illegal earnings, the report said.

Liu confessed she sold 23 cheating devices to students and charged between 5,000 and 8,000 yuan each, the newspaper said.

She also paid younger students who radioed the answers to the candidates sitting the examination.

Liu and Yang reportedly also prepared devices for their children, who also took the national college entrance examination in June.

Liu bought 27 sets of devices from her former classmate Tai Shouzhen, the report said.

She told police she sold as many as she could to get a free device for her child.

Tai is in police custody.

Police had confiscated 683 devices by June 12.
