Administrative detention for illegal dumpers

According to a document (全文) recently made public by the Ministry of Environmental Protection, illegal dumpers can be punished with up to 15 days administrative detention, which they will spend at a public security detention centre (zhi’an juliusuo, 治安拘留所).

The legal basis for this measure is given by the Law on Administrative Penalties for Public Security (全文), the Water Pollution Prevention Law (全文), and an opinion of the Legislative Affairs Work Committee entitled “Opinion concerning the question about using administrative detention for the act of illegal disposal of waste” (全国人大法工委对违法排污行为适用行政拘留处罚问题的意见/全文)
