Police Officers Probed Over Handling of Tangshan Women’s Assault
A district police chief and four other police officers are under investigation for their handling of cases linked to the brutal assault of four women at a barbecue restaurant on June 10, after the police response was widely panned by the public as slow and sloppy.
Ma Aijun, head of the Lubei district branch of the Tangshan public security bureau, is being probed by graft busters in the neighboring city of Langfang, while the other four are being investigated locally, according to a statement (link in Chinese) issued by Hebei province graft watchdogs on Tuesday. The officers are suspected of “serious violations of (Communist Party) discipline and law,” a phrase that usually refers to corruption.
