The indictment said that Wang Wantao and Fu Xiaoling jointly received 500000 yuan in cash from Yang Shunchang in order to thank Wang Wantao for divulging relevant information about him prepared to be investigated by the Municipal Public Security Bureau. There are also 80000 yuan, which are 20000 yuan collected by asking for help in recovering stolen goods and 60000 yuan sent in the name of new years greetings.

According to the information disclosed in the court hearing on August 26, Wang Wantao got to know the informant Yang Shunchang when he went to Santai County to investigate an explosion in 1996, and the two began to have contacts. According to an advanced story of Wang Wantao in his early years, Wang Wantao was sent to Santai County from Zitong County in 1996 to investigate an explosion with bad nature and bad influence.

The prosecutions supplementary indictment said: in March 2018, Wang Wantao, knowing that the public security organs were secretly investigating Yang Shunchang and other suspected criminal organizations, met with Yang Shunchang and informed him of the secrets of the investigation and revealed the investigation direction of the case.

However, Wang Wantao said in a written record made by the investigation organ on November 26, 2019 that when the public security organ was ready to arrest Yang Shunchang, I also participated in the operation, but I did not inform Yang Shunchang, and I strictly abide by the bottom line of a policeman. During the trial, Wang Wantao further said that he did not disclose the relevant case information to Yang Shunchang, but only advised him to take the initiative to clarify the relevant issues to the police. He believed that this was only to advise Yang Shunchang to surrender.

Wang Wantao denied accepting 500000 yuan from Yang Shunchang, saying he did not know about it. Her wife, Fu Xiaoling, admitted to receiving more than 600000 yuan in cash, including 500000 yuan from Yang Shunchang. However, she told the court that these were normal human relations since she had been in business for many years. Fu Xiaoling said that her family usually gave money and things to Yang Shunchang. The 500000 yuan cash was the result of years of friendly exchanges between the two sides.

It was once known as the God of war in Mianyang criminal investigation

The surging news noted that Wang Wantao almost denied all the charges made by the prosecution in court, and only admitted accepting tens of thousands of yuan. His defenders also put forward the exclusion of illegal evidence in court.

Wang Wantao said that during the investigation, he was confessed and induced by investigators, and was forced to make a guilty confession against himself. Fu Xiaoling, Wang Wantaos wife, also said that she had been interrogated for a long time and was asked to kneel on the wooden floor.

The defenders of Wang Wantao and Fu Xiaoling believe that a large number of records of innocent confessions are hidden, and the prosecution failed to provide synchronous audio and video recordings of relevant records, and the authenticity and legality of the guilty confession records are in doubt. All the charges can not meet the standard of conviction and sentencing with clear facts and sufficient evidence.

The prosecution believes that the relevant evidence collection is completely legal. The judge held that the defense party failed to provide relevant clues for the formation of illegal evidence, and rejected the requirement of excluding illegal evidence.

On the afternoon of August 27, after the completion of the trial procedure, the court announced that it would suspend the court session. The case is expected to hold another session in September to deal with the follow-up legal issues such as property involved in the case.
