Documentary focuses on government's campaign to combat organized crime

A six-episode documentary series depicting the nation's fight against organized crime has led netizens to call for further investigations and the removal of corrupt officials behind such crimes.

The series Saohei Chu'e, meaning "fighting organized crimes", was produced by China Media Group and broadcast late last month. It focused on 25 cases that were resolved during a three-year crackdown on organized crime that was launched by the central government in 2018. In each case, gangs had "protective umbrellas" that masked their crimes and helped them evade justice.

One of the cases mentioned in the series involved Deng Shiping, a maintenance worker at Xinhuang No 1 Middle School in Xinhuang Dong autonomous county, Hunan province, who was killed and buried by gangsters over 17 years ago for reporting the gang's illegal activities.
