Foreign teachers among detainees in drug-using case in Xuzhou
    2019-07-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SEVEN foreign teachers from an education company were recently detained for taking drugs in China, police in East China’s Jiangsu Province confirmed yesterday.

Among 19 people detained in Xuzhou for allegedly taking drugs, 16 are foreigners, including seven foreign teachers from an education company and nine foreign students, said a statement by the Xuzhou police on Sina Weibo.

One foreigner was arrested on suspicion of committing a criminal offense and the remaining 18 people were given administrative detention. The case is still under investigation, said police. The type of illegal drug involved and the name of the education company were not mentioned in the statement.

Media reports said a number of foreign teachers from Education First’s Xuzhou center have been detained by police for allegedly taking drugs. Education First is an international education company established in Sweden and has education centers in many Chinese cities, according to the company’s website.

An employee who didn’t give his name from the publicity department of Education First told The Beijing News that it has launched its own investigation. The employee said the company will cooperate with the police and suspend the foreign teachers if the allegations are true.

“We will further strengthen teacher training and management to ensure that every foreign teacher understands the relevant laws, regulations and policies in China,” the employee said. (Global Times)
