[photopress:examinee.gif,full,alignright]Police in east China are seeking a former county recruitment official who disappeared after being accused of taking bribes to allow unqualified people to attend the national college entrance exam this year. The picture is NOT of the naughty person. It is of a student doing last minute cramming as he walks to the examination room.
Xu Yunfeng, former director of the recruitment office of Dangshan County Educational Bureau, Anhui Province, allegedly confessed to police he took bribes worth RMB24,000 ($3,157) from teachers and gave 747 unqualified people permission certificates to attend the national exam.
Xu disappeared when investigators decided to transfer him to judicial authorities for prosecution on June 20.
The case was discovered when police were investigating the county’s national college entrance exam scam, in which university students were organized to sit the exam and then sell their test results to people who failed, changing the candidate identities along the way.
Police in Dangshan have arrested four people, who were found to have offered 41 college students in Hefei, capital of Anhui, RMB1,000 each to take the exam.
Most of the college students failed to attend the exam as they had heard that police were alerted to the scam.
