Minitrue: The Zhou Yongkang Case

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.

Without exception, use Xinhua wire copy as the standard in coverage of the recent Zhou Yongkang case. The media must not interpret the case without authorization. Take special care to control the amount of coverage and netizen commentary. All media and websites must pay attention to recent requirements for republishing reports. (December 7, 2014)

真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.
