New regulations in China allow security officers to conduct personal electronic device inspections WITHOUT warrants
By Zoey Sky // Jun 04, 2024

China has introduced new regulations that will significantly increase the powers of law enforcement personnel to gather evidence. The regulations, which are slated to take effect in July, will affect both Chinese nationals returning home and tourists visiting China.

Critics have voiced worries that the update is a response to the unprecedented crisis facing the regime, prompting advisories for people to avoid traveling to the country.

Reports have revealed that the new regulations will grant law enforcement the authority to inspect electronic devices directly in emergencies, with the presentation of police or reconnaissance credentials. However, the rules did not clearly define what an emergency is or what its parameters are.

Tang Jingyuan, a China affairs commentator based in the United States, said these measures align with a recent Chinese Ministry of State Security campaign to control the flow of foreign information.

Tang explained that the new regulations will "push society towards a wartime mechanism and serve as a soft form of isolationist measures."

In the April 29 issue of Study Times, the official newspaper of the Central Party School of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the party's highest internal political training institution, Minister of State Security Chen Yixin emphasized the ministry’s focus on fighting "subversion, hegemony, separatism, terrorism and espionage."

Lai Jianping, a commentator and former lawyer, thinks that the CCP is facing an unheard-of crisis that will lead to further restrictions on civil freedom through increased social control.

According to Lai, the new regulations will only foster more discontent among citizens because they know it violates the regime’s laws and constitution, as well as international human rights laws.

While people may not know how to oppose these regulations, their frustration will intensify, which can then result in the continued decline in the party’s ruling legitimacy, added Lai.

Travelers warned to be more cautious amid new regulations

Chen Daoyin, a political commentator and former associate professor at Shanghai University of Political Science and Law, said the stronger the sense of crisis a regime has, "the stronger its desire for control," as proven by China's new regulations on monitoring devices.

The regime's customs department has already been running random inspections of electronic devices of people entering China within the past few years. But the recent move is part of China's effort to standardize administrative and law enforcement procedures through legislation.

Chen has warned Chinese travelers abroad to purchase new smartphones for local use to ensure "physical isolation," adding that deleted WhatsApp messages can still be recovered.

For those who might be a target of the regime, such as active human rights groups in the free world, those involved in rights movements in Chinese territories like Tibet and Xinjiang and adherents of the banned religious movement Falun Gong, Chen said it might be better to avoid going back to China if you "anticipate investigation upon your return."

Several reports suggested that police in Beijing, Shanghai and other cities have intercepted people’s mobile phones on streets or in subway carriages for several years.

After the White Paper Movement in 2022, security checks in China were extended to residents' homes.

Zhou (pseudonym), a Shanghai resident, told reporters that he had been forced by police officers to surrender his smartphone for inspection. He added that they wanted him to go to the police station because he shared posts about people's livelihoods.
