Former top Chinese cop charged with murder


BEIJING: A former regional police chief in China has been indicted with murder and multiple other offenses, the country’s top prosecution agency said, with his victim re-portedly a girlfriend more than three decades his junior. Zhao Liping, 64, has been charged with murder, bribery and possession of firearms and explosives, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate said in a statement. Zhao headed the police in Inner Mongolia for seven years until he retired in 2012, and was also a deputy head of the northern region’s govern-ment. Many fallen Chinese officials have been found to have mistresses, and corruption investigations have often been triggered by allegations from spurned or angry women.
