Police Push For Personal Data Theft Law
PRIVACY LAW—CHINAJuly 5, 2012
ZDNet reports on a push by China's police force for a more regulated and better defined law involving the theft of personal data. According to Ministry of Public Security Deputy Director of the Criminal Investigation Department Liao Jinrong, existing laws make it difficult for law enforcement to secure convictions because they lack specificity. Jinrong said the Ministry of Public Security is currently negotiating with the country's Supreme People's Procuratorate and Supreme People's Court for the new personal data legislation.
