A few days ago, members of the Kunming Public Security Bureau began handing out copies of a bilingual flyer to businesses frequented by foreigners. On the flyer is a list of snippets from the PRC Constitution, bordered by holly, teddy bears and Santa Claus.
Entitled POLICE NOTICE, the flyer feels like it has the implied heading "In case you forgot we had laws..." Here is the full text:
