For his part, media personality Hong Tao told the station that the official obscenity scandal, which came to light on Thursday (11), immediately ignited public opinion, with netizens arguing that the officials involved were suspected of corruption but were not pursued. The police in Lianyungang, Jiangsu province, were quick to “put out the fire” because of the public opinion on official and judicial issues, and called informants from around the country directly to delete the post.
Hong Tao said: that lawyer, just two or three minutes after sending out, the Internet police phone calls came to the door, asking to delete the post. Several of my friends have been called to find the bar. They themselves have been sent to the Chinese Magistrate’s Office, ah, just a blackmail party, the female auxiliary police, sentenced so heavily, but she blackmailed the deputy director, the police station chief, the hospital director, the school principal, those are public officials, easily hundreds of thousands, millions of to plug a female auxiliary police mouth, where they come from so much money? Have you dealt with it? They are unable to justify this problem. So that now anxious in the world to delete the post chant.
The heroine of the scandal is Xu Yan, a female auxiliary police officer in Lianyungang, who was arrested a year and a half ago and was sentenced to 13 years in prison for extortion until December 29 last year, with a fine of 5 million and the recovery of 3.726 million yuan of her extortion proceeds.
According to the court verdict of Gounan County, which came to light only recently, Xu Yan, who was only 19 years old in 2014, had sexual relations with nine public officials simultaneously or uninterruptedly since the beginning of the five-year period, and demanded financial compensation. Among those blackmailed were two police station chiefs, two deputy directors of Lianyungang district and county public security bureaus, a hospital vice president, an elementary school principal, a union president of a government agency, and two other unranked individuals. According to informants, Xu Yan’s case may involve more people being blackmailed, and not all parties are currently exposed.
The station called the Procuratorate of Gounan County, which admitted that the processing of the civil servants involved in the case has not yet begun. He said the situation is confidential, no obligation to disclose to reporters.
The county procuratorate: I know what you said about this matter, we can not disclose to you. We have not started this internal processing, are not out, are confidential, you have to ask, what are you trying to do?
The list of scandals includes Liu Xiangbing, who was deputy director of the Haizhou Branch of the Lianyungang Public Security Bureau and was extorted for 1.28 million. He fell a month before Xu Yan was arrested in May 2019, and the court verdict said he received more than 700,000 yuan in bribes. But he was only sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison.
Our correspondent could not reach Xu Yan’s relatives for comment. Li Songping, who served as Xu Yan’s defense lawyer, did not answer the reporter’s calls, and it was unclear whether he was an official lawyer. The local officials also did not disclose how Xu Yan became an auxiliary police officer.
