Probe starts over claim police captain a criminal

A POLICE captain in north China is being investigated over a claim he is a wanted criminal who had evaded local police for 17 years.

Si Jianbing, a crime squad captain with Hebei Province's Qinhuangdao City, was being considered for promotion to vice director of a sub-bureau of the city's Public Security Bureau in the city's economic development zone before the investigation, the Oriental Morning Post reported yesterday.

Police invited public comment on the promotion and one of the comments sparked the investigation. The bureau will publish the results of the investigation, an officer surnamed Gu told the newspaper.

According to the comment, Si was wanted by police in May 1992 for stealing and smuggling luxury cars. But he was never apprehended because his father was then a vice director of Qinhuangdao's Public Security Bureau, it said.

Instead, he continued to work with the city police and was promoted to captain of its crime squad in 2007.

Si's colleagues denied the claim. "I can definitely assure you the claim is not true," an officer surnamed Wen told the newspaper.

The Qinhuangdao's Party organization department, which is in charge of government appointments and human resources management, examined the issue a long time ago, he added.

He admitted that Si's father, who had died, had been Qinhuangdao police bureau's vice director, but he denied Si's promotion had anything to do with his father.

Si was named one of province's outstanding officers in 2007, the report said.
