China launches website for citizens to report spies, corrupt bureaucrats

DHARAMSHALA, April 16: The Chinese government has launched a website which encourages its citizens to report information on potential threat from foreign agents and their designs to its “sovereignty, territorial integrity and national security” on Sunday.

The newly launched website in Mandarin and English lists 21 reportable activities, including activities “to subvert the state power”, a charge commonly pinned on Tibetans in occupied Tibet. Number of Tibetans have also been charged with colluding with so called separatists in exile, which under the heading of “to dismember the state,” also makes the list of activities deemed reportable.

In what is being referred to as China’s campaign against espionage, users of the website are also encouraged to tip-off foreigners meeting any people within China “who have conducted activities endangering state security or being strongly suspected of doing so.” 

Corrupt officials who are known or suspected to be taking bribes have also been encouraged to be reported. President Xi Jinping has launched an aggressive drive against graft since taking office although critics have said that it was also a tool to eliminate political rivals such as Bo Xilai.

Anyone suspected or known to be selling or buying state secrets can be reported in both Chinese and English and may qualify for cash rewards depending upon the level of information reported. While there is no mention of the amount of rewards, the Beijing City National Security Bureau was offering $1,500 to $73,000 for information on spies, the official Beijing Daily reported last April.

The Beijing government has also sought to include its people in the drive against spies and people who are colluding with foreign states. On Sunday, which marked the National Security Education Day, a cartoon with the illustrations, “a friend with a mask”, for questionable behaviour among people, was released.
