Qi Xiaolin, deputy director general of the public security bureau of Guangzhou, S China, who was found hanged at 18:00 Tuesday, had no violations of law or disciplines during his time in office, the municipal party committee said on Jan. 9.
Wu Sha, secretary of the political and law committee, confirmed that Qi hanged himself in his own office on Jan 8, as proved by the on-scene investigation and the autopsy.
Qi had devoted wholeheartedly to his job and rendered an excellent performance since he took office, despite that he had been suffering from depression during lifetime, Wu said.
No incriminating evidence had been found which suggested Qi had any malpractice. Efforts must be made to handle the aftermath settlement and to fully implement favorable policies for the police, Wu added.
Born in September, 1957, Qi Xiaolin began his career in public security at the age of 23. He was appointed as the deputy director general of Guangzhou security bureau in 2007.
