Notice concerning the Prohibition to Arrange Publication of Books Presenting the Situation of Officials in our Country’s Government
Recently, some publishers and magazines have organized the compilation of directories, yearbooks and other books introducing the situation of officials in our country’s government (including: names, professions, scope of powers, individual interests and hobbies, etc.). Relevant leading departments have put forward an opinion: some materials relating to leading cadres of government organs are incorrect or should not be divulged to the outside world (such as the Ministry of Security, the Ministry of Public Security, etc.). This sort of materials, apart from the variety that has already been approved and compiled by Xinhua, may not be produced by other work units. Accordingly, all relevant publishers are requested to no longer arrange for the publication of this sort of books in the future.
