Beijing police crack down on black jails

By Deng Jingyin (Global Times)

08:07, December 02, 2011

The Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau launched a campaign Wednesday to crack down on rogue security contractors, which have been found to be committing crimes such as illegally intercepting and detaining petitioners.

Zhang Bing, a deputy director of the bureau, told reporters that more than 130 companies and 300,000 security guards make up the capital's security market. Yet, nearly half of these contractors operate without a license, and many of the guards do not have a job certificate.

"The city's security market is in complete chaos. Some companies have been operating outside the law and against regulations, and a few have even allowed their security guards to impede the flow of government work and to participate in illegal activities such as detaining people and setting up black jails, all of which will be covered in the campaign," Zhang said.

In one of the cases, a former security guard and 15 collaborators were arrested in August for running an illegal detention center in Changping district.

True, why should those black jailers, employees and associates be pardoned if they had been arrested and being pursued? Make them known since many innocent folks had suffered financially, emotionally and physically!! Deceptive company names in China must be closed down too in order to prevent cheatings aand rampant frauds occurring every minute of the day. Modernisation processes also involve in cleaning the processes as it sees fit aand proper; but never ignore the facts and myths of troubles.

I would also urge Peoples Daily to launch an independent journalistic investigation of all of the actors and factors involved in this serious crime.

According to the article, one of the security companies was "paid by five provincial and city governments to hold people who came to Beijing to submit petitions to higher authorities, in the name of "maintaining social stability,"======= It is absolutely essential that the provincial and city authorities who employed this company to intercept and kidnap petitioners be charged and imnprisoned. This kind of activity is a VERY serious violation of the publics right to supervise the government, and it is also not just "holding people" but kidnapping them, so all of the people involved - the security companies, the security guards, and the government officials who used them - must be charged with kidnapping.

" ...a private security company named Beijing Huaxingyongzhen Technology Corporation, told the Global Times ..." TO GET REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT RIDDING BLACK JAILS ONCE AND FOR ALL, THE ABOVE COMPANY"S NAME IS DECEPTIVE AND MISLEADING WHICH SHOULD BE ASKED AND FORCED TO CLOSE AND TO RE-APPLY FOR NEW NAME AND LICENCE! THIS REGULATION MUST BE ALSO APPLY TO ALL SIMILAR DECEPTIVE COMPANY"S NAMES.

Since the police came to know about it, has the investigation taken place so that all city government officals and the security personnel who involved will be charge and sentence to at least five years jail term
