China to rec­tify prob­lems of in­ter­net bars in ru­ral ar­eas

Fiji Sun - - China News - Bei­jing:

China will launch a cam­paign to ad­dress prob­lems of in­ter­net bars in ru­ral ar­eas in a bid to cre­ate a healthy cy­berspace com­mu­nity, ac­cord­ing to the Min­istry of Cul­ture and Tourism.

The min­istry re­quires lo­cal law en­force­ment au­thor­i­ties to in­ten­sify the crack­down on in­ter­net bars who ad­mit mi­nors, fail to check cus­tomers’ ID cards, and op­er­ate bars with­out a li­cence.

Data showed that more than 490,000 law en­force­ment per­son­nel across the coun­try have in­spected more than 190,000 bars, set­tled 3573 cases, sus­pended 244 in­ter­net bars for rec­ti­fi­ca­tion and re­voked the li­cences of 18 bars.

The min­istry has black­listed 52 in­ter­net bars whose li­cences were re­voked for ad­mit­ting mi­nors.

The le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tives or own­ers of th­ese in­ter­net bars are for­bid­den from open­ing another in­ter­net bar for five years.
