Thousands of cases have been solved and criminal investigation experts have become umbrellas
The upstream journalists learned that in September 1999, the Ministry of public security hired nine criminal investigation experts, including Yan Zizhong. In the next few years, the above-mentioned experts participated in the investigation of many major and difficult cases, and repeatedly built remarkable achievements, which was known as the national team in the field of criminal investigation.
Upstream journalists learned that Yan Zizhong, a 38-year-old policeman, participated in and directed thousands of criminal cases, including the big and small landlord case in Qiqihar City, which caused a sensation for a time, and ended the local bully gangs for more than ten years.
Zhang Zhiwen and his new brothers, known as big and small landlords in Qiqihar, have no royal law. They are involved in many bad illegal acts, such as murder, rape, robbery, kidnapping, extortion, organizing prostitution and illegal possession of firearms. Under Yan Zizhongs command, the police arrested 126 people involved, including big and small landlords, and seized more than 20 guns in 2003.
In addition, Yan Zizhong also participated in the cracking down of such cases as 1995.1.28 armed robbery of huge wages in Hegang City, Heilongjiang Province, the 2002.12.18 robbery and murder of public security and civilian police in Daan County, Jilin Province, the 2003.1.18 extraordinary robbery and money carrier murder in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, and Ma Jiajue murder in Yunnan University.
In June 2010, Yan Zizhong was appointed Vice Mayor and Director of Public Security Bureau of Mudanjiang City, Heilongjiang Province. Six months later, he began to reform the new police mode. At the beginning of his tenure, 45 homicides occurred in Mudanjiang in the first six months of 2010, and 6 of them were not uncovered. When hearing the report, Yan Zizhong said on the spot: At least five can be broken. By the end of the year, all but the murder that he felt uncertain about was uncovered.
Upstream journalists noted that the language of the Heilongjiang Discipline Commissions circular was very stringent. Yan Zizhong, as a leading cadre of Party members and peoples police, lost his ideal and belief, betrayed his original mission, was not loyal and honest to the Party, and was prepared to confront organizational censorship, enforce the law and break the law, shelter illegal and criminal activities of those involved in criminal activities, and acted as a umbrella.
