On June 7th, 2022, the Ministry of State Security of the CCP promulgated the Measures for Rewarding Citizens for Reporting Conduct Endangering National Security and took effect immediately,
once again launching a Cultural Revolution-style movement of ordinary people to mutually monitoring, reporting, bullying and fighting.
The Measures contain 5 chapters and 24 articles, which make it clear that citizens can get “spiritual rewards” or “material rewards”,
dividing the reward criteria for reporting links with foreign intelligence agencies and hostile forces into four levels: less than 10,000 CNY, 10,000 – 30,000 CNY, 30,000 – 100,000 CNY and over 100,000 CNY,
When more than one person offers the same tip-offs, the one who reported it first would get material rewards and others could get spiritual rewards.
The measures stipulate that informants should be rewarded for reporting by meeting three conditions at the same time:
Firstly, there should be a clear target for reporting, or specific tip-offs that on breaches of national security;
Secondly, the reported matter has not been grasped by the state security authorities, or has been grasped but can provide more detailed information;
Thirdly, it has played a role and contributed to the prevention, suppression and punishment of actions against the security of the CCP.
It also clarified the work related to reporting rewards, including to pursue the responsibility of the staff in national security authorities of the six circumstances, the responsibility of the informants of the four circumstances and the responsibility of the informants of the two circumstances of their units.
