Hainan Wanning headmaster molesting case takes new turn
An elementary schoolgirl, who stayed overnight with a primary school principal, surnamed Chen, and another underage girl in Wanning, Hainan Province, has claimed that the man took out condoms and offered 10,000 yuan ($1,625) to have sex with her and the other girl, the Guangzhou-based Nandu Daily reported.
Weiwei (pseudonym), one of the six girls who were allegedly molested by Chen and a local official surnamed Feng on May 8, said Chen allegedly told them he would use condoms to avoid them becoming pregnant.
After the girls resisted Chen's cuddling and fondling, Chen counted out 10,000 yuan in exchange for having sex with them.
Chen attempted to take off the girls' pants but failed to have sexual intercourse because the girls resisted.
The newspaper also said that Chen did not enter the other room in which two other girls stayed that night.
No further details were given as to what happened to two other girls, who stayed in another hotel with a local housing department official, surnamed Feng.
The Hainan provincial education department on Wednesday ordered local educational officials in Wanning to revoke Chen's teaching qualification.
Weiwei had previously attended Wanning No.2 Elementary School in 2011, where Chen was the principal.
After being caught skipping classes with two boys, they were all taken to Chen's office.
He kept her back alone, and allegedly gave her his mobile phone number, telling her she could contact him whenever she wanted.
At the time of the alleged molestation, Weiwei and the other girls were enrolled in other local primary schools.
Tongtong (pseudonym), Weiwei's friend, said on May 5 that she wanted to go to Haikou, the provincial capital, after she had a fight with her father.
Three days later, Tongtong and Weiwei, with some other girls, planned to go to Haikou. Weiwei then called Chen to drive them.
Chen then drove the six girls to a local hotel and left them with 300 yuan.
When Weiwei called Chen later that night, Chen asked them to go to a nearby karaoke parlor.
Two of the girls didn't want to go and one called Feng, her godfather, to pick them up.
While in the karaoke parlor, Chen danced with the girls and kept touching them, and made them drink some alcohol, the newspaper reported.
Chen took four girls to a hotel and booked two rooms, with Weiwei and Tongtong staying with him in one room.
On the morning of May 9, Chen gave the girls 700 yuan and they left the hotel, according to the Nandu Daily.
The Commission for Discipline Inspection of Wanning expelled the two men from the Party and fired them from their posts on Wednesday.
In the meantime, the local prosecutor's office approved the arrest of both men under suspicion of child molestation.
Police are still investigating the case as of Thursday.
