Chinese have plundered a tomb under the leadership of the secretary of the Communist Party


The criminal syndicate has made undermining in ancient tombs in Central China and has stolen hundreds of artifacts. South China Morning Post reports about it. In this regard investigation the police has detained 140 people. They are suspected of participation in the criminal scheme working at least since 2013. Among suspects — members of 14 various gangs and the secretary of a local cell of the Communist Party. The official by the name of Vaughan, presumably, was the leader of one of criminal groups. Police officers have found and have confiscated more than 700 relics stolen from tombs. Malefactors dug a tunnel from the cellar of the restaurant which is nearby. The narrow manhole dug at a three-meter depth allowed to squeeze into it only to one person. From an entrance to rooms of historical tombs on it it was required to pass only 10 meters. The police has suspected wrong in August of this year when it has found out that trade in relics in the village, next to tombs. Criminals weren't limited to nearby settlements — on a charge of sale and purchase of stolen artifacts have detained people in several provinces of China at once. Some parts of Yinxu, the famous archaeological object in the Province of Henan, weren't opened by archeologists and remained in an untouched state in the millennia. Therefore it is difficult to estimate a loss which was caused by plunderers of tombs: the undermining they have damaged layers of earth that can lead to further destruction and loss of historical values. Historical ruins belong to the ancient state of Shang existing more than 3000 years ago. Finds in Yinxu have given rise to the Chinese archeology and had huge value for history of China.
