China’s ‘ingenious detective’ investigated for wrongfully imprisoning innocent people

Two innocent people, a man and his nephew, were accused of raping and killing a woman, but were finally rehabilitated after being imprisoned for 10 years.

Nie Haifen, the “ingenious detective” who was in charge of the case, has become the focus of public opinion.

An investigation team has been set up by authorities to make a thorough investigation of Nie Haifen and others’ roles in the wronged case throughout the judicial course from investigation through prosecution and trial.

In May 2003, Zhang Gaoping and Zhang Hui drove from their hometown Xiexian County, Anhui Province to Shanghai.

On their way, they gave a lift to a certain Ms Wang, a native of their hometown. The next day, the woman was found dead in the field naked from waist downward.

One year later, the court found the two guilty of raping and gave them a severe sentence. They were rehabilitated after ten years of imprisonment.

Nie Haifen, of the Public Security Bureau (PSB), was praised by the authorities as a “Female Miracle-working Detective” and granted the honour of “National March 8 Red Banner Pacesetter.”

In a TV program titled “Flawless–New Haifeng,” Nie Haifeng gave a self-glorification account of how under the conditions of having no evidence at all, she was able to make to make Chang Gaoping and his nephew confess the facts of their crime through “surprise interrogation” to “put them on tenterhooks”

According to official propaganda, Nie has been in charge of major cases to give death penalties in over 300 cases at trials of first instance, with zero error.

According to, the DNA found in Ms. Wang the victim’s nail was found to be that of a person other than Zhang and his nephew.

Since the police were unable to find the third person, they should have released the two, but they did not.  Instead, the two were prosecuted and convicted.

Later the DNA of Gou Haifeng, the criminal of another rape and murder case, was found highly identical to the DNA found and the manner of Gou’s crime was similar to the rape and murder in the two Zhangs’ wronged case. The two were thus lucky to be rehabilitated after 10 years of imprisonment.

CCTV interviewed Zhang Gaoping and Zhang Hui and found that the police beat them up and denied them sleep for days and nights in a row to force them to incriminate themselves.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
