The Intermediate People's Court off Guigang City of the south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region sentenced a public security officer and two other defendants to death for drug trafficking, the court sources said.

Huang Jinxiong was former political instructor of the police supervision brigade of Pingnan County's public security bureau.

In October 2004, Huang colluded with his friend Tang Dazhang on purchasing and trafficking heroin. Tang then asked He Shirong, another drug trafficker, to buy heroin from Longzhou County at the Chinese-Vietnamese border.

On November 11, 2004, He Shirong bought 346.5 grams of heroin at Longzhou County and took it back to Pingnan County. He then handed it over to Tang and Huang.

Soon later, Huang called Li Jie, his accomplice, and planned to traffick the heroin to Guangdong. Both Huang and Li was caught on the spot at Huang's home. Tang and He were seized later by police.

According to the country's criminal law, the court sentenced Huang, Tang and He to death at the first judge, and Li was sentenced to life imprisonment.
