BEIJING:  The Brazilian government has hired Chinese security officials to smack down on anti-World Cup protestors.

According to China Radio International, "Altogether, about 600 Chinese-made security systems and facilities were installed in eight 2014 FIFA World Cup stadiums across Brazil to ensure safety and contribute to advanced security inspection."

Chen Yongjiang, head of the Buctech Engineering Department, is quoted as saying that, "Our technicians have trained some 200 local security staff to operate the facilities and taught them to identify dangerous possessions via the scan machines."

As reported by China Radio International, "The inspection systems and security facilities were made by Nuctech Company, which is based in Beijing. The inspection system has been installed in the Arena de Sao Paulo, which is scheduled to host the opening match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup."

Apparently, the Chinese are highly-qualified to shut down political demonstrations.
