Chinese government to start paying citizens who report 'security violations'

Chinese citizens can soon obtain cash rewards of up to $15,000 for sending tips about “security violations” to the government.

Chinese government officials announced the policy Tuesday, offering citizens cash rewards from 10,000-100,000 Yuan, or $1,500 to $15,000, depending on the value of the tip.

Citizens can also receive “spiritual rewards” in the form of a certificate, Reuters reported.

“The formulation of the measures is conducive to fully mobilizing the enthusiasm of the general public to support and assist in national security work, widely rallying the hearts, morale, wisdom and strength of the people,” representative for the Chinese Ministry of State Security said.
