Guangdong repatriate two Taiwan suspects
Latest Updated by 2005-08-18 09:56:45

Guangdong police officials said yesterday they would continue to expand co-operation with overseas counterparts to fight cross-border crimes.

"Guangdong will never become a haven for criminals from home or abroad," said an official from Guangdong Provincial Department of Public Security yesterday in the provincial capital of Guangzhou.

Guangdong is particularly looking forward to pushing forward co-operation with Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions and Taiwan Province in the years ahead to crack down on cross-border crimes.

The move aims to better safeguard economic development in Guangdong, and generally create a better environment for local residents and offshore investors.

He made the remarks after Guangdong police repatriated two people suspected of serious crimes back to Taiwan, China's largest island, on Tuesday.

Kwok Bai-yi, 36, was detained by police on February 4 after he stole a motorcycle in the city of Dongguan in the Pearl River Delta, which borders Hong Kong and Macao.

Kwok is suspected of having committed a murder in Taiwan Province and absconded to Guangdong.

Chiu Yuan-chang, 61, was detained by police in the city of Chaozhou in the eastern part of Guangdong on July 21. Chiu was accused of having raped a young girl in Taiwan. He absconded to Guangdong and applied for a local residence permit to avoid legal punishment.

With the country's recent opening up, increasing numbers of compatriots from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao are coming to Guangdong to do business, tour and settle down.

But a small handful of people suspected of committing crimes in Taiwan have also arrived in the province. Their presence jeopardizes public security and people's lives, the official said.

Guangdong police is planning a number of special campaigns to fight murder, kidnapping, rape, money laundering, drug trafficking, robberies, loan sharking, fraud, organized crimes, smuggling and illegal immigration in the following years.

The official said it was also their duty-bound responsibility to protect the legal interests of investors and tourists from around the world, including compatriots from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Guangdong has attracted more than 100,000 investors and their family members from Taiwan.
