After a Shenzhen resident became the first person in China to win a cash reward for providing information leading to the arrest of a terrorism suspect, all Guangdong residents are now eligible to take part in the scheme, reports Xinhua.
Police authorities stated on Sunday that a cash reward up to RMB 500,000 (US $80,000) is now offered to any resident of Guangdong who provides information about terrorist attacks, terror suspects, terrorist funding activities, extremist activities and the production of books or videos that promote terrorist activities or recruit followers.
Guangdong police say they have already arrested three suspects since the reward system began.
If you’re still worried about ratting out a potential terrorist, the Ministry of Public Security wants you to know it’s got your back. They’ve promised to protect informants, and will punish any police officers that allow informants to be harmed.
