We’ve previously told you about a new way to earn cash in China that involves informing the authorities about potential terrorism suspects. And now, somebody has come forward to collect.
A man from Shenzhen is first to claim a cash reward for turning in somebody believed to be suspicious, reports Xinhua. The winner, surnamed Zheng, provided police with information that lead to the arrest of a wanted criminal by the Xinjiang police department on terrorism charges. The suspect had fled to Shenzhen in June, and Zheng was there to help put him away.
However, we don’t know how much Zhang got for his efforts. The reward was initially set between RMB 2,000 to RMB 500,000, but that there was no firm upper limit.
We do know that you can’t put a price on public safety.
