Penalties for Hunan identity thieves

THREE people in a central China town have been punished for helping a woman get into university by stealing her high school classmate's identity.

Wang Zhengrong, a former senior police officer, has been arrested and referred to judicial departments for allegedly forging official documents and identity papers for his daughter Wang Jiajun.

Zhang Wendi, class adviser to both Wang Jiajun and the victim, Luo Caixia, at their former high school in Shaodong County, Hunan Province, and Yao Liangsheng, a local police station chief, were both demoted for helping with the ID theft.

Wang Jiajun, who posed as Luo from 2004, has disappeared. Her family claims they do not know where she is.

Wang Jiajun was dismissed by her employer after the scandal was uncovered. Her diploma and teaching license have been revoked.

With a whole set of fake documents, Wang Jiajun completed her college education and was granted a bachelor's degree and a teaching license last year.

Luo retook the university entrance exam in 2005 and went to Tianjin Normal University.

She discovered there was a woman using her identity when she applied for online banking facilities. Her application was refused as the bank had already registered a woman with the same personal data.

Luo also had problems getting her teaching license, degree and graduation certificate for the same reason.
