Police officer fired for unapproved births

A police officer in Yunfu, South China’s Guangdong province, was fired from his job after it was learned he had children born outside the birth-control plan, according to the local police authority.

The officer, surnamed Xue, has four children, one with his former wife and three with his current wife, according to the investigation by the police authority.

Xue’s former wife delivered his first child, a daughter, in August 2006.

Xue’s current wife, surnamed Xie, gave birth to one boy and two girls between 2012 to 2019. 

According to the police investigation, Xue never reported his wife’s pregnancy to the authority after it was discovered she was four months along in September 2018.

The police authority talked with Xue several times, asking him to deal with the situation in a proper way. But Xue refused to cooperate and insisted the fourth child be born.
According to relevant Chinese laws, civil servants will be fired if they violate the family planning regulation.

“As a police officer, Xue needs to be responsible for children born outside the child-control plan,” said Du Binghan, a mother of two in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province.
