China has announced a law amendment that would punish those who먹튀검증 wear clothing that undermines the national spirit.

According to reports from Reuters and other news agencies on the 8th, the revised draft of the ‘Public Security Management and Punishment Act’ released by the Chinese authorities earlier this month stipulates ‘an act of wearing or forcing the wearing of costumes or signs in public places that damage the spirit and hurt the feelings of the Chinese people.’ was declared an illegal act. ‘Writings that hurt the feelings of the Chinese nation’ were also included as illegal acts. If you commit this act, you may be detained for 10 to 15 days and fined up to 5,000 yuan (910,000 won).

However, the draft bill does not have specific definitions for ‘costumes that harm national spirit’ or ‘writing that harms national sentiment’, causing controversy.

Chinese legal experts called for the law’s provisions to be scrapped, saying they could be applied arbitrarily. Reuters reported that Tong Zhiwei, a constitutional scholar at East China University of Political Science and Law, posted on social media Weibo, “Who determines the spirit of the Chinese nation and through what procedures? He was reported to have argued, “Who determines the feelings of the Chinese nation and through what procedures?” Other legal scholars and bloggers also called for the abolition of the provision through social media.

About 40,000 opinions were posted on the website of the National People’s Congress (National People’s Congress), the legislative body. “Today they can stop you from wearing certain clothes, and tomorrow they can stop you from speaking,” one netizen wrote on his Weibo. “And the next day they can stop you from thinking.” Another Weibo user also asked, “Is it a problem to wear a suit and tie? “Marxism also originated in the West, but is Marxism currently in China also hurting the feelings of the Chinese nation?” he pointed out.

Recently, as anti-Japanese sentiment has grown in China, people who wear traditional Japanese clothing have been sanctioned. Last February, a woman wearing a kimono was stopped from entering a tourist attraction in Dali City, Yunnan Province, and in August, a woman wearing a kimono was reported to the police in Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province.
