Minitrue: Increased Security in Shanghai for CICA Summit

The following censorship instructions, issued to the media by government authorities, have been leaked and distributed online. The name of the issuing body has been omitted to protect the source.
The media must not report, comment on, exaggerate, or hype traffic controls and security measures for the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA). (May 21, 2014)
各媒体对亚信会议的交通管制和安全措施不报、不评、不渲染炒作。
Shanghaiist reports that “emergency units” have been patrolling Shanghai’s streets prior to and during CICA, which is taking place in the Shanghai Expo Center May 20-21. CICA is a multilateral organization focused on peace and security among its member states. The US is an observer. The Diplomat’s Mu Chunshan explains the origins of CICA and it role in anti-terrorism.

CDT collects 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 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.
