A businessman from Dalian who was called upon by police every time he checked into a hotel, has received an apology. Mr Li’s troubles began after a namesake was arrested for drug dealing, and an officer made an error with the offender’s details. Despite the offender being in jail, each time Mr Li took a room and gave his details, police were alerted who promptly arrived to arrest him. On producing his ID, officers realized his date of birth was different to his incarcerated namesake’s. The error has since been rectified and Mr Li has been apologized to, but he just wants his reputation restored.
