Xu knew that he was in a bad situation. At first, he hoped to settle Cheng by giving money. However, after Cheng asked for money again, Xu found that the other party might be a bottomless pit and finally chose to call the police. On December 22, 2019, Cheng went to Xus construction site and was subdued after a dispute with Xu. Xu called the police and arrested Cheng at the scene.
After examination, the procurator in charge held that Cheng extorted other peoples money by threat for the purpose of illegal possession. The amount of money was huge. His act had violated Article 274 of the criminal law of the peoples Republic of China. The facts of the crime were clear and the evidence was reliable and sufficient. He should be investigated for criminal responsibility for the crime of extortion.
Prosecutors said that in case of emotional problems, we should take reasonable and legal means to protect their rights. We should not be like Cheng, who was originally the injured party of his wifes adultery, but chose the means of extortion, which eventually turned into the perpetrator and was punished by law.
