China to crack down on 'black jails'

[ BBC China ] 2 Dec

China's public security bureau has launched a six-month crackdown on so-called black jails operated by private security firms in Beijing.

The Global Times said police uncovered one detention centre in Beijing's Changping District in August. It had been paid for by five local authorities. The police now say that the practice of blocking petitioners will not longer be tolerated.
