Henan Man Files Complaints Against Police Chief Multiple Times, Has Hukou Household Registration Canceled On Day of Day of Filing Complaint

Southern Metropolis Daily report — Yesterday, it was exposed online that the hukou household registration of Henan province Luyi county resident Xiao Jianpeng had been bizarrely cancelled, presumably related to him and his wife’s repeated complaints against the local police chief’s misconduct [dereliction of duty, not doing as expected].

With regards to this, the Luyi county public security bureau confirmed to this Southern Metropolis Daily reporter that Xiao Jianpeng’s hukou has indeed been cancelled, but is unable to investigate the reason. Wang Feng, the police chief accused of being involved, did not respond to interview requests.

Person involved filed complaint against police chief for arrest

Netizen Mao Anlin, verified as a media columnist, posted a microblog yesterday claiming that, as a result of filing complaints against local police chief Wang Feng, his interviewee and Henan Luyi county resident Xiao Jianpeng has “as a result had his entire identity canceled, becoming a nonexistent person!”

Xiao Jianpeng’s wife Cao Lu told this Southern Metropolis Daily reporter that because she had lost her hukou booklet, she had gone to the Luyi county Shiliang town police station last week to get a replacement and discovered that the page in the booklet [registration] for her husband Xiao Jianpeng has disappeared. She asked police staff and the response she got was that Xiao Jianpeng’s hukou has been cancelled, “the leader [chief] had it cancelled”.

Cao Lu claimed to this Southern Metropolis Daily journalist that she saw on the police staff’s computer that the reason her husband’s hukou had been canceled was “has a hukou in Shanxi province”. However Cao Lu indicates, “my husband has in all his years never been to Shanxi before. His hometown is Jiangxi, so he has absolutely no relation to Shanxi.”

Xiao Jianpeng said to this Southern Metropolis Daily journalist that he saw that the date his hukou was cancelled was 2013 January 25 and thus believes this has something to do with Luyi county suburb police station political instructor and acting police chief Wang Feng. Since 2012 September, he and his wife have visited higher Ministry of Public Security levels and their disciplinary inspection departments to file complaints against Wang Feng and other local police officers multiple times.

According to receipts of complaint letters as well as copies of public documents provided by the couple, the couple has reported Wang Feng and other police officers for misconduct [not doing as expected, or dereliction of duty]. According to the relevant complaint documents, in 2012 September, Xiao Jianpeng was involved in a fight over an internal company dispute where a police case was opened in which he was to be criminally detained [arrested] (not carried out). Afterward, however, the determination of injury that was a key evidence in the case was revoked/overturned by a higher public security organ. Although Xiao’s criminal detention was also revoked/overturned, Xiao believes this still leaves him with a police record. Xiao Jianpeng believes this was the police chief Wang Feng and others “conspiring together to make false charges” against him, and it is because of this that he petitioned/filed complaints, demanding that they be held accountable.

Police: Unable to investigate whether or not Shanxi hukou exists or not

Cao Lu recalled to this Southern Metropolis Daily reporter that in 2013 January, Wang Feng had come to their neighborhood, “saying he would cancel my husband’s hukou, saying he’d like to see how we’re going to sue him after his hukou is canceled.” Xiao Jianpeng expressed to this Southern Metropolis Daily reporter that when his hukou was revoked happens to be the day his family went to the Zhoukou city Discipline Inspection Commission for the second time, and that he did not at the time take Wang Feng’s threat seriously, “I didn’t think he’d be so bold, not until I saw (proof of my hukou canceled).”

According to a piece of proof issued by the Shilian police station on 2014 April 24 provided by Xiao Jianpeng, Xiao Jianpeng’s hukou was revoked on 2013 January 25, with the reason for the change being “other”.

Yesterday, this Southern Metropolis Daily reporter contacted Luyi county Public Security Bureau’s Household Registration Office requesting verification, and the staff confirmed that Xiao Jianpeng’s Luyi hukou has indeed been canceled. With regards to whether his “Shanxi hukou” exists or not, the staff indicated that they were unable to check that. This Southern Metropolis Daily journalist also successfully connected through to Wang Feng’s mobile phone, but Wang Feng said he was unable to hear sound on the call, so this Southern Metropolis Daily reporter then sent a text message requesting confirmation of this story but has not received a response from Wang Feng.

Is no longer having a hukou equivalent to no longer having citizenship, which means no longer enjoying the protection of the law, as well as being subject to punishment under the law?
So, what is there to be afraid of then?

ty0769 [网易广东省东莞市网友]:

Unless there is proof of death, the public security system should not have the power to cancel someone’s hukou!!!!!!!!!

When power is not controlled/checked, us rabble might as well just wait to be oppressed. It’s just that certain organizations should take note, that water can float a boat, but can also sink a boat.

LOL, not being subject to punishment just because one doesn’t have a nationality? You’re retarded.

The [police station] staff said, it was their leader [the chief] who had it canceled. However niu bi your evidence is, it isn’t as powerful as a leader’s order, do you still not understand?

This police chief’s power sure is big. Now his name is known throughout the country, but soon he’ll have his name written off [he’ll be fired, removed from his position]!

Haha, then that just means the notary office can make more money!

月在梧桐缺处明 [网易湖北省宜昌市网友]: (responding to ty0769)

Personal misuse of the power granted to him by the government to arbitrarily cancel someone’s hukou. There is no legal justification. This is what power is, without supervision/oversight, and excessively centralized.

The outcome of fights between the people and officials is like this, where the ordinary common people suffer. It has been like this throughout history!

They’ll charge you with illegal immigration.

The reform of the petitioning/letters of complaints system is niu bi! If you petition/report something, they’ll make you dead [a hukou is canceled typically when the person has died].

Last night while on a stroll, I saw a big fatty swatting flies on top of a pile of manure, his technique exquisite, causing every around to exclaim: Impressive! Incredible! Go! At this time, a little fatty walked by and said: Why swat the flies? Why not just shovel away this pile of manure that breeds/attracts the flies? The crowd went silent… Suddenly the family of the big fatty roared: Nonsense! What everyone is watching is the swatting of flies, so if there aren’t any flies to swat, what is everyone supposed to watch! And so the little fatty was sent running by the curses of the crowd.
