Rewards For Porn Site Informers

Today the Ministry of Public Security issued rewards to a number of informers who have tipped police about pornographic websites since China launched its nationwide campaign to crack down on the illegal online operations in July.

The awards were either financial, ranging from 500-2,000 yuan (US$60-240), or came in the form of free anti-virus software, according to the ministry.

As of October 8, police have received 42,055 tips, including 7,222 involving on-line porn. With the help of these informers, police shut down 1,125 porn sites and 290 other illegal operators engaged in gambling or swindling. The information has also helped uncover 254 criminal cases and captured 445 suspects involved.
