China to bring new law enhancing protection for military
Beijing: China plans to revise a 23-year-old law on the protection of defence facilities by barring among others, the installation of equipments which could affect the military wireless services.
The draft released to get public opinion forbids the construction and installation of equipments and obstacles which could influence the effective use of military fixed wireless apparatus.
Activities that could affect the electromagnetic environment of military wireless facilities are not allowed in the new draft, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
The draft issued by the Legal Affairs Office of the State Council also makes clarifications on military forbidden zones, military administrative zones as well as security control areas beyond forbidden zones.
The proposed law also bans unauthorised entry into land and water military forbidden zones by personnel, vehicles and vessels other than those belonging to units in charge of the zones.
Photograph, video-taping, recording, reconnoitering, surveying, drawing or descriptions of the forbidden zones are not allowed, either, unless with military approval, according to the draft.
The draft also prohibits flying low over forbidden zones.
Those disturbing the management order of military zones will be held criminally responsible in serious offences, the draft said.
The current law went into effect on August 1, 1990.
