Web user punished for accusation of spreading rumors during Qidong protest

A web user, surnamed Sun, was sentenced to 10 days of administrative detention by Qidong public security bureau, for the accusation that she spread rumors such as “police stamped a person to death” online.

According to Qidong public security bureau, Sun, female, 28, posted on the Internet that “Nantong Police stamped a 9-year-old girl to death, and in the afternoon beat another 18-year-old undergraduate to death” on July 28, 2012, when Qidong residents held a massive protest against a government-run pipeline project intended to channel waste water from a paper mill to the sea.

The public security bureau’s notice states, “Sun’s behavior is in violation of the Article No. 25 of the Public Security Administration Punishments Law of the People’s Republic of China regarding the stipulations of ‘spreading rumors, fabricating facts, or inciting disturbances of public order in other ways.” The public security organ thus imposes a penalty of administrative detention for 10 days and a fine of 500 yuan.”
