Qinghai Civil Aviation Airport Public Security Bureau Carry out Legal Investigate into a Passenger Who Disturbed Public Order through Illegal Behaviour

Legal Daily Online, Xining June 29th  Han Ping reports

A notice issued this afternoon by Qinghai Civil Aviation Airport Public Security Bureau: In recent days, in order to maintain peace and stability, and acting in accordance with legal procedure, Qinghai Airport Security investigated a case of a passenger who disturbed public order through illegal behavior.

On June 25th at 20:15 Mr. Wan, the person who behaved illegally, arrived in Xining on flight CZ6269 from Beijing. At 20:30, Mr. Wan walked out of the arrival control area. When we reached the parking lot, he discovered that he had left a piece of luggage in the arrival hall on a cart near the luggage carousel. He then returned from the parking lot to the arrival hall. At 20:35 Mr. Wan trespassed into the arrival control area in search of his luggage. Airport security personnel repeatedly tried to dissuade him, but Mr. Wan would not be listen and argued with safety personnel. Following this, airport safety personnel called for the police.

Three on-duty police officers from the Qinghai Civil Aviation Airport Security Bureau immediately arrived at the scene. In accordance with the relevant legislation under “Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on Safety and Security of Civil Aviation”, the officers demanded Mr. Wan leave the control area, and also adviced that airport personnel help him to find his luggage. However, Mr. Wan would not listen their advice and would not leave the control area. He continued to shout and scream in the control area, and would not co-operate with the directives of the on-duty police officers. After repeated attempts by on-duty police officers were ineffective, at 20:49 the officers forcibly removed Mr. Wang from the scene to carry out investigation.

During the investigation, the on-duty police officers patiently educated and explained policy to Mr. Wan. They also asked Mr. Wan’s friends from the scene to co-operate with police work and accept investigation. However, Mr. Wan still refused to co-operate and refused to answer the officers’ questions. According to evidence gathered at the scene by Qinghai Civil Aviation Airport Security Bureau from two of their counterparts, airport staff, and eye witnesses, Mr. Wan’s behavior constituted a disturbance of public order. The facts are clear and the evidence is conclusive. In accordance with the provisions of Article 23 of the first paragraph of the “Public Security Administration Punishments Law of the People’s Republic of China” the Qinghai Civil Aviation Airport Public Security Bureau placed Mr. Wan into detention for a period of 5 days as punishment.

During the investigation of this case, Qinghai Civil Aviation Airport Security Bureau police informed Mr. Wan of his legal rights, and strictly abided by the laws and regulations during the course of interrogation. An audio-visual recording of the entire course of law enforcement was made. In accordance with the laws and regulations, before Mr. Wan was put into detention, police escorted him to the People’s Hospital in Haidong City, Ping’An District to undergo a physical examination. According to the results of his physical examination, it was established that there was no legal basis preventing Mr. Wan from being put into detention. On June 26th at 7:10 Mr. Wan was taken to Ping’An district detention centre. On June 25th at 20:49 police forcibly escorted Mr. Wan from the scene. As Mr. Wan refused to co-operate, this led to 3 scars on his wrists from handcuffing.

At the detention center, Mr. Wan’s scars were recorded and Mr. Wan signed a document to confirm this. On June 27th at 10:00, Qinghai Civil Aviation Airport Security Bureau made a phone call to Ping’An District Detention Center. They requested medical care for Mr. Wan who was experienced chest pains and dizziness. Qinghai Civil Aviation Airport Security Bureau immediately sent two officers with legal recording equipment to escort him to Ping’An District Hospital. In the presence of his friends and family, Mr. Wan received medical examination. The results of his examination showed high blood pressure and hyperglycemia. No other symptoms were detected. Doctors recommended that Mr. Wan be admitted to hospital for observation. After being treated, 2 police officers once again read Mr. Wan his rights and informed him that once he had recovered he would complete the remainder of his administrative detention period. Mr. Wan expressed agreement.

Qinghai Civil Aviation Airport Security Bureau sincerely thanks the large netizenry for following public security work,and welcomes netizen scrutiny of the Public Security Bureau and police.

    法制网西宁6月29日电 记者韩萍 今天下午,民航青海机场公安局通报:近日,为维护机场治安秩序稳定,民航青海机场公安局依法查处一起旅客扰乱公共场所秩序违法行为。

6月25日20时15分许,违法行为人万某乘坐由北京飞往西宁的CZ6269次航班到达西宁。20时30分许,万某从西宁机场到达厅控制区走出,行至停车场后发现随身携带行李遗忘在到达厅行李转盘处的手推车上,随即又从停车场返回到达厅。20时35分许,万某擅自闯入到达厅控制区寻找行李,机场安检人员多次劝阻,但万某不听劝阻并和安检人员发生争执,机场安检人员随即报警。民航青海机场公安局3名执勤民警立即到达现场,按照《中华人民共和国民用航空安全保卫条例》有关规定,对万某进行劝阻,要求万某退出控制区,并告知其行李由机场工作人员帮助找回。但万某既不听取劝阻也不退出控制区,继续在控制区内大吵大闹,不配合现场执勤民警执行公务。执勤民警多次劝阻无效后,于20时49分许将万某强制带离现场进行调查。

调查期间,执勤民警对其进行了耐心教育和政策说明,并请万某在场朋友劝其配合民警工作、接受调查。但万某仍拒不配合,拒绝回答民警询问。经民航青海机场公安局对其同行2人和机场工作人员等目击证人进行调查取证,根据现场收集到的相关证据,万某的行为构成扰乱公共场所秩序,事实清楚,证据确凿。根据《中华人民共和国治安管理处罚法》第二十三条第一款第二项之规定,民航青海机场公安局对万某处以行政拘留5日的处罚。

该案调查期间,民航青海机场公安局民警告知万某依法享有的权利,严格按照法律规定进行询问,对执法全程视音频记录。按照法律规定在对万某执行行政拘留前,民警将其带至海东市平安区人民医院进行体检。根据体检结果,万某没有不适合行政拘留的法定情形。6月26日7时10分将其送至平安区行政拘留所执行行政拘留。6月25日20时49分,民警将万某强制带离现场时,由于其拒不配合,导致手腕有3处手铐勒痕。拘留所对万某勒痕进行了备案,并经万某签字确认。6月27日10时许,民航青海机场公安局接到平安区行政拘留所电话,万某称“胸闷、头晕”身体不适提出就诊申请。民航青海机场公安局立即派2名民警携带执法记录仪将其送往平安区中医院,在其家属和朋友陪护下进行诊断,诊断结果为高血压和高血糖症状,无其他症状,医生建议入院观察。就诊后,2名民警再次向万某宣读了权利和义务,并告知病愈后将依法执行未完成行政拘留期限,万某表示同意。

民航青海机场公安局感谢广大网民对公安工作的关注,同时也欢迎广大网民对公安机关及民警执法进行监督。
