According to an official of the National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications, in 2016, the office and its nationwide sub offices confiscated more than 16 million items of pirated or illegal publications, and handled more than 6,000 cases, of which 600 involved criminal activity.

In the first quarter of this year, they confiscated over 3.7 million publications and dealt with 1,515 cases.

The campaign includes book recommendations, lectures and essay solicitation.

The official said that collective efforts by the government, society and every individual could create an environment where knowledge is respected and illegal activities are rejected.
