VOA: China Judicial Interpretation of New Measures
China’s Supreme Court and top procuratorate jointly issued
interpretation on new regulations for online rumors.
It was continuously condemned by public opinon
at home and abroad.
Voice of America (VOA) reported that this interpretation is
nonsense.It provides legal support for the regime’s police.
PC World magazine in the US reported that China’s judicial
interpretation of “new measures said, internet users can face
defamation charges if their online posts have been read 5,000
times or reposted 500 times.
If found guilty, users could face jail for up to three years.”
VOA said that China’s judicial interpretation of the new
measures is nonsense and cruel.
Official Rumors Do More Harm Than Netizens
Judicial interpretation of “defamation information reposted
500 times incurs charges” caused widespread netziens’debates.
Lawyers pointed out that the Supreme Court and highest
Procuratorate violated the law.
There are also some voices from the media against this.
They said the Chinese regime had published many fake news
stories which were misleading the public.
These did more harm than netziens’ online rumors.
To clear out online rumors it should start with clearing out
the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) rumors.
Netizens dug out many fake news made by the CCP in the past.
They were widely reposted, and netizens requested charging
the officials who created the rumors.
Netizens in Sichuan said China’s Central Television(CCTV)
claimed that “European and US sanctions over Syria had
brought 45 million families disasters. Netizens questioned that
Syria only has a population of 22.4 million!
China-based writer Luo Zhiyuan said that Xinhua news and
CCTV are producers of lies.
Recently, they issued fake reports saying that Istanbul was the
winning city for the 2020 Olympic Games.
Actually it is Tokyo. Changsha Wanbao had to recall several
hundred thousands newspapers.
Lou questioned that the CCP created rumors, so
how to punish them?
A Guangzhou lawyer said that if the CCP doesn’t punish the
people creating rumors in Xinhua news and CCTV, it will be
hard to justify implementing the new measures for online rumors.
It will obviously only be used for protecting officials but
applying suppression to public expression.
