At a press conference held by the Ministry of Public Security on October 26, Zheng Xiang, a second-level inspector of the Criminal Investigation Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security, revealed that the "Drain Flow" project is progressing smoothly and the results are beginning to show.

Zheng Xiang said that in recent years, the Ministry of Public Security has always attached great importance to combating telecommunication network fraud crimes, insisted on high-level deployment, and severely cracked down on telecommunication network fraud crimes in accordance with the law, and achieved initial results.

However, a large number of scam criminal groups are constantly shifting overseas to avoid crackdowns, especially Southeast Asia has become the main gathering place for such crimes.

  Since last year, affected by factors such as the continuous spread of the global epidemic and the rapid growth of the epidemic in some Southeast Asian countries, domestic case-handling units have been unable to go abroad to carry out joint crackdowns, overseas electronic fraud dens have grown rapidly, and criminal activities of telecommunications network fraud against Chinese citizens have become increasingly rampant.

  In order to effectively solve these practical difficulties, the Ministry of Public Security adjusted its crackdown strategy in a timely manner, organized a centralized review and key research and judgment on overseas returnees, discovered a group of illegal and criminal clues that organized recruitment of personnel to go abroad to carry out telecommunications network fraud, and figured out overseas electronic fraud. From the domestic criminal network and organizational structure of recruiting personnel, the dens timely deployed the national public security organs to carry out the "cut-off" project operation, and carried out landing verification and investigation on target clues.

  Severely crack down on organizing recruitment of personnel to carry out telecommunications network fraud criminal activities abroad, focusing on "snakeheads", digging "funders", and breaking channels, effectively cutting off the criminal chain of overseas electronic fraud dens recruiting personnel from the country, and squeezing telecommunications network fraud The living space of criminal gangs outside the country.

  At present, the "Drain Flow" project is progressing smoothly and the results are beginning to show. It has effectively promoted the local party committee and government source governance work, and has effectively promoted the work of persuading high-risk persons stranded abroad involved in fraud. Up to now, a total of 19,000 illegal immigrants have been intercepted across the country. There are more than 69,000 high-risk fraud-related personnel who have been educated and persuaded to return overseas, and the high-incidence situation of organizing smuggling overseas to carry out telecommunications and network fraud criminal activities has been curbed to a certain extent.

  Zheng Xiang said that these results fully prove that the launching of the "cut-off" project action is very necessary, very effective, and completely correct. The important content of the special struggle for (frontier) border management crimes is an important carrier that is based on domestic and overseas deployment requirements under the conditions of normalized epidemic prevention and control. The national public security organs will continue to maintain a fierce offensive against telecommunication network fraud crimes in accordance with the law and resolutely contain them. The high incidence and frequent occurrence of such cases has effectively safeguarded the vital interests of the people.
