China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

The Min­istry of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity has co­or­di­nated lo­cal au­thor­i­ties in a crack­down on crim­i­nal gangs that man­u­fac­tured and sold high-tech de­vices for cheat­ing in the na­tional col­lege en­trance ex­am­i­na­tion, known as the gaokao, which started on the morn­ing of June 7. The cam­paign, launched in Liaon­ing, Shan­dong, Hubei, Guang­dong and Sichuan prov­inces and the In­ner Mon­go­lia au­tonomous re­gion in late May, re­sulted in the bust­ing of 12 crim­i­nal gangs and the seizure of more than 100,000 wire­less de­vices for cheat­ing, the min­istry said in a state­ment on June 5. An of­fi­cial from the min­istry said that the il­le­gal pro­duc­tion, sale and use of wire­less cheat­ing equip­ment se­ri­ously jeop­ar­dized the se­cu­rity of the ex­am­i­na­tion, un­der­min­ing so­cial jus­tice and the cred­i­bil­ity of the sys­tem.
