BEIJING, April 16 (ChinaMil) -- Chinese Ministry of State Security launched an online whistle-blowing platform, https://www.12339.gov.cn/, on April 15, 2018, based on laws and regulations including the Constitution of the People's Republic of China (PRC), the Criminal Law of the PRC, the State Security Law of the PRC and the Counterespionage Law of the PRC.
The online whistle-blowing platform is open to the public and can help strengthen the handling of reports on espionage and other crimes and activities that endanger state security.
