Video Cameras to Monitor All Beijing’s Internet Cafes

Beijing will set up monitor cameras in all of the Internet cafes within this year, said Jing Hua Shi Bao, a Beijing local newspaper.

The monitors are to enforce the Internet cafe management and surveillance, constrain the spread of unhealthy information and spam emails, the newspaper said. The monitors will also be used to implement the Internet laws and regulations.

Setting up video cameras will enable the Beijing Bureau of Public Security to monitor all of the Internet Cafes in Beijing in real time. The newspaper said the information gathered by the video cameras will also be open to other government bureaus.
