Minitrue: Iron Lady Appears at Temple

The following  instructions, issued to the media by government authorities, have been leaked and distributed online.

State Council Information Office: Delete the article “Former Vice Premier Wu Yi Visits Nanshan Guanghua Monastery in Fujian.” (February 8, 2014)

国信办:删除2月7日《原副总理吴仪参访福建南山广化寺》的报道。

“Iron Lady” Wu Yi retired in 2008.

Chinese journalists and bloggers often refer to these as “Directives from the .”

CDT collects these directives from a variety of sources and checks them against official Chinese media reports to confirm their implementation.

Since directives are sometimes communicated orally to journalists and editors, who then leak them online, the wording published here may not be exact. The original publication date on CDT Chinese is noted after the directives; the date given may indicate when the directive was leaked, rather than when it was issued. CDT does its utmost to verify dates and wording, but also takes precautions to protect the source.
