China Imposes Crim­i­nal Penal­ties on 2670 Peo­ple in il­le­gal Pub­li­ca­tions

Fiji Sun - - China News - Xin­hua

China has im­posed crim­i­nal penal­ties on more than 2670 peo­ple for vi­o­la­tions of law and reg­u­la­tions re­gard­ing porno­graphic and il­le­gal pub­li­ca­tions in 2018, ac­cord­ing to data re­leased by China’s na­tional of­fice against porno­graphic and il­le­gal pub­li­ca­tions on Thurs­day. The 2670 per­pe­tra­tors were busted among a to­tal of more than 12,000 cases han­dled by the of­fice last year.

Un­law­ful ac­tiv­i­ties range from il­le­gal pub­li­ca­tions, dis­sem­i­nat­ing porno­graphic con­tent on­line, fak­ing press cre­den­tials, piracy, and copy­right in­fringe­ment.

Chi­nese au­thor­i­ties also shut down 26,000 web­sites con­tain­ing ob­scene and other harm­ful con­tent and con­fis­cated 15.9 mil­lion il­le­gal pub­li­ca­tions.

In one case in Ji­ax­ing, east China’s Zhe­jiang prov­ince, the Po­lice busted a crim­i­nal ring which en­gaged in on­line-stream­ing of porno­graphic videos rak­ing in 250 mil- lion yuan (FJ$77.85 mil­lion). More than 200 sus­pects were ar­rested. To en­hance su­per­vi­sion over porno­graphic and il­le­gal pub­li­ca­tions in lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties, over 510,000 work­sta­tions were es­tab­lished across the coun­try as of De­cem­ber 2018, said the of­fice.

In 2018, Chi­nese cit­i­zens con­trib­uted more than 130,000 leads re­lated to the afore­men­tioned il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties in the crack­down cam­paign, it added.

To so­licit more help from the pub­lic, the gov­ern­ment raised the max­i­mum re­ward for valu­able in­for­ma­tion to 600,000 yuan (FJ$188,422) in De­cem­ber.
