China: Former Xinjiang police chief arrested in bribery investigation, say Chinese prosecutors

Two former officials from China’s restive Xinjiang region have been arrested on suspicion of taking bribes, the country’s top prosecution body has announced.

Jureti Ibrahim, formerly deputy director of the police in Urumqi, the far-western region’s capital, was taken into custody following an investigation by the city’s supervisory committee, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate said on its website on Tuesday.

Ibrahim, an ethnic Uygur and Communist Party member, was reported in local media in 2014 to have attended a local police symposium, where he said police needed to “firmly stand on the frontline for anti-terrorism and stability” and to “resolutely make no compromise to terrorists and separatists, and show to leniency or mercy in resolute suppression.”
