    State media warn against online “rumour-mongers” amid fears of a crackdown on freedom of speech.

    Beijing police have detained Yang Xiuyu, founder of the Erma Company, a marketing company, and employee Qin Zhihui for allegedly making profits from “fabricating and spreading online rumours” about official corruption and government ineptitude. Four other employees of the company are also under investigation.

    The Beijing News outlines a litany of “rumours” allegedly spread by the company. They include a report that the Chinese government was offering higher compensation to three foreign victims compared to Chinese killed in a train crash in Wenzhou two years ago.

    Other “rumours” include “defaming the image of Lei Feng”, a revolutionary hero, and harming the reputation of the Chinese Red Cross with the alleged wealth scandal of “Guo Meimei”, a young woman who claimed to have links with the organisation.

    “The fabrication and spread of rumours and other criminal activities are currently running amok on the internet. Illegal elements may be using socially sensitive hotspot issues to concoct rumours in society to stir up trouble and confuse the people, or to directly slander and attack companies and citizens,” comments the Beijing Times.
