Chapter 160: Riddled with Holes (Part one)
Xu Cheng smiled. “Mr. Ambassador, we are only investigating and haven’t made any convictions yet. You don’t have to have such a strong attitude. If there’s no problem, then we will provide an explanation. But since we are investigating, we should follow the procedure. I think Mr. Ambassador is familiar with the law and procedures, right?”
“I don’t need you to teach me. Since you have to investigate, why bring so many people? You almost surrounded the entire building. Anyone not blind can see that you are not here to investigate but to directly arrest my people. If I didn’t show up, could you have already arrested some people and forced a confession out of them?”
Xu Cheng narrowed his eyes. “I just happened to arrest a batch, and it was the group led by the vice president of your nation’s business alliance. Mr. Ambassador, do you want me to release him? I already took him in, and I also forced a confession out of him. Is there a problem?”
Cunye was caught red-handed with the money, so it would be a bit hard to get him out of that one. The ambassador was suddenly unable to reply. He stared at Xu Cheng, feeling that this guy was extremely good at negotiations, both fast in reaction and highly alert.
Seeing the guy had become silent, Xu Cheng then said, “According to the clues, black money came from here, so was there a problem with me investigating this place? Mr. Ambassador, why aren’t you staying in your embassy but out here trying to get involved. Could the Wei Nation be behind this underground money house?”
“Let me tell you, you can’t slander us like this!” the ambassador retorted harshly, “Do you know what you are saying?”
Xu Cheng’s tone also became a lot more aggressive, “Then let me ask you, Mr. Ambassador, do you know what you are doing right now? What identity are you using to intervene on this investigation? Are you representing the Wei Nation or just yourself? If it’s the former, then I would have no choice but to suspect that the Wei Nation has other intentions. If it’s the latter, then let me tell you right now to move away. Please do not hinder us from investigating. Please comment after we are done with the procedures and have concluded the investigation.”
Then, he gave a look to Li Chao, and Li Chao waved his hand forward, signaling for the special police officers to charge in.
“Don’t you dare!” the ambassador roared in a deep voice. “The Wei Nation business alliance isn’t a place anyone can just come and investigate. If you want to search, please present the search warrant. If you don’t have one, please get out!”
At this moment, with a “ding” sound, the elevator opened, and Li Chao panted as he ran over with the search warrant signed by the director. The reason Xu Cheng had been chit chatting with this old man was just to buy time to wait for his arrival. Now, with the search warrant here, he threw it at the ambassador and said to his men, “Start searching!”
“Yes, Sir!” Wu Gang and the others got the order and walked into the office in an orderly manner.
The ambassador saw the search warrant also had the official seal of the general office of the city police department, and his body trembled as he shouted, “If you can’t find anything, then I will file a complaint to your government!”
Xu Cheng was too lazy to deal with him. “Do whatever you want!”
Zuozhi saw how pissed the ambassador was. He walked over and said in a low voice, “Mr. Ambassador, please don’t worry.”
The ambassador then looked at Zuozhi, lowering his voice as he asked, “Is there a problem or not? If there is, you know you will drag me down too. My career would end today as well. I only came over this time because of the benefits you gave me in the past, and I only stood up for you because I trust you. Don’t let me down.”
