Pornog­ra­phy, Gam­bling Cracked

Beijing Review - - This Week Society -

Chi­nese po­lice have han­dled over 130,000 pornog­ra­phy cases and over 280,000 gam­bling cases since the be­gin­ning of 2017, with the re­ported num­ber of re­lated cases drop­ping 13 per­cent year on year, the Min­istry of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity an­nounced on March 29.

Po­lice solved 135 ma­jor cross­bor­der cases in­volv­ing pornog­ra­phy and on­line gam­bling dur­ing the same pe­riod. They broke up do­mes­tic or­ga­ni­za­tional chan­nels for casi­nos based in more than 10 coun­tries and re­gions, de­tain­ing over 5,300 sus­pects and freez­ing over 6 bil­lion yuan ($956 mil­lion) of in­volved cap­i­tal, the min­istry said.

It vowed to tar­get the or­ga­niz­ers, op­er­a­tors and prof­i­teers in­volved in pornog­ra­phy and gam­bling and to se­verely pun­ish those pro­vid­ing an “um­brella” for these il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties.
