An official investigation has been initiated in Quanzhou county in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region after local authorities were found to have improperly handled a complaint of high public concern.

Discipline inspection and supervision authorities in Guangxi announced their decision to probe the matter on Tuesday afternoon.

Previously, an investigation led by city-level authorities in Guilin city that administers Quanzhou county was already rolled out.

According to an official July-dated notice been circulating online since Tuesday, the health bureau of Quanzhou said it decided not to receive a plea filed by a local couple who requested an investigation into a potential human trafficking case involving one of their seven children born in the 1990s.

At least two health officials have been suspended as a result for "disregarding appeals from the public and intentional inaction" while further investigation is underway, according to public information released earlier on Tuesday.

The complaint being overlooked by local authorities reportedly concerns complicated topics including accusations of human trafficking and the implementation of family planning policy in the 1990s in China.
