Chinese authorities in Tibet have ordered Internet cafes across the region to finish installing state-of-the-art surveillance systems by the end of the month, industry sources and local media said.”All the Internet cafes must now install it,” said Chen Jianying, head of the customer service department of the industry group Internet Cafes Online. “This is a nationwide policy which is part of the implementation of the real-name registration system,” Chen said.

According to a report carried on the official China Tibet News website last week titled “Long-range Surveillance of the Internet,” all computers installed in enterprises that offer services to the public must install the system.

The proprietor of an Internet cafe in the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, which is still under tight security following widespread Tibetan unrest beginning in March 2008, confirmed the scheme is already in full swing.

He said he had already been to the police station for training in how to run the system.

“The system should be up and running now,” the business owner said. “I heard the technical people saying that the last time I attended a meeting.”

“It’s pretty convenient because they can configure it directly from higher up if the guidelines change.”

He said the new system will mean tighter online controls.

“If there is something that is being controlled, there’s no way anyone will get to see it. It’s definitely a tighter form of control,” he said.

The China Tibet News website also reported that the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) government has already inaugurated its long-range surveillance system.

Local media also reported that the department has dispatched engineers throughout Tibet to install the new system in individual Internet cafes, and to train business owners and technical staff in its operation.

Funding is already in place for the project, and all Internet cafes in the region are now effectively implementing a real-name registration system.

Under the nationwide scheme, which took effect Aug. 1, second-generation identity cards belonging to the person using the Internet must be swiped to allow online access. Viewed content can then be traced back to that identity, using the the surveillance system.
