China Daily | Updated:2017-07-20 07:11Police officers make a list of bank cards seized in a telecommunication fraud case in Xuchang, Henan province, in January. NIU YUAN/CHINA DAILYTHIRTEEN EMPLOYEES of a courier service company in North Chinas Hebei province were arrested recently for selling more than 40,000 pieces of private information of their clients. China Youth Daily comments:Three of those arrested by the police are middle-level executives of the company and the others are delivery personnel. They form a complete industrial chain with the middlemen, and buyers, who are mostly salespeople of health foods companies and real estate agents.The private information they trade is not restricted to telephone numbers and home addresses, but also their clients e-commerce records, which is of commercial value to the buyers.The judicial authorities issued an interpretation on how laws apply to crimes infringing on citizens private information in May, specifying the penalties that can be meted out to such “insiders” who make use of their jobs to steal peoples private information and seek illegal gains by selling it.If the amount of information or illicit gains made surpasses a certain level, the culprits should be handled according to the Criminal Law, rather than the public security regulations.But the difficulty in obtaining evidence against them and the ease with which they can make money mean there are always those who have access to peoples private information and take the risk of stealing it.Apart from legal penalties and cracking down on such crimes, measures are needed to preempt the rampant theft and sale of peoples private information.The authorities should not only target the sellers, but also the other parties in the chain.The judicial authorities need to call to account the employers of those caught selling private information. The e-commerce, delivery, telecommunication, banking, transport and healthcare institutions as well as the other agencies in relevant industries also need to strengthen their internal management and supervision to prevent employees from taking advantage of their posts to fatten their own pockets. And last but not the least, the buyers of the information must be held accountable too. CartoonsWelcome on boardBrexitApproval ratingObesity due to overworkHeat waveCholera epidemic in YemenMost Viewed in 24 HoursFroum trendsIs life safer in China?Is it a good idea to get married straight after college?ColumnistsUS news media biased reporting destroying trustG20 must put actions to its words if it is to deliver on its consensusForumFeatured ContributorsPresident Xi right to focus on real economyChinas fintech boom a wake-up call for regulatory techChina Daily Bureau ChiefsChongqing and Chengdu City Cluster on faster trackXi-Ma meeting brings historic opportunitiesStar BloggersThe smartphone – Indispensable to life in ChinaFrom Henan to Princeton: How 14-year-old girl made the journeyBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
