PS: Xu Fanghui Lawyers Committee proposals

On the “rule of law thinking” clarify “mahjong entertainment” and “mahjong gambling” boundaries of the proposal was no longer haunted by Wuhan people playing mahjong

In Wuhan, in Hubei, in urban and rural China, Mahjong activities is very popular, is popular in all social strata and sectors, into millions of households. Retired veteran comrades back, has played several times in her spare time, refreshed. Holidays, family reunions, and played a few rounds of Mahjong, is permeated with a festive joy.

“International standard mahjong” referred to national standard Mahjong is a game of Mahjong, rules for the State General Administration of sport of China was enacted in July 1998. Subsequently in many international and domestic application in your Mahjong contest, so it is called the national standard mahjong. But because of its complex in Wuhan is still not widespread.

“Wuhan mahjong” to “red Yoriko staves” for mainstream game, pay attention to opening (that is, touching, eating, bar), not opening not Hu, two Laizi and fart and can’t, red on the hand cannot. Touch and, monochromatic, uniform, the same wind, all asking for, bar open, underwater fishing, grab bars are da Hu. Others are farts and.

Mahjong activity as a phenomenon of traditional Chinese culture, puzzle, fun, game in one set, charm, East heritage long and rich cultural identity, his unique value called a national treasure. Of course, some hate, that mahjong gambling, the degree of crime and drug use is no different.

In fact, mahjong and not necessarily linked to gambling. After the founding of new China, gambling gone, mahjong in people’s health in the amateur cultural life has existed for many years. Today, when someone mahjong gambling when his guilt when not mah. Born in Huai-Nan said the Orange Orange, rooted in the Huaibei called citrus aurantium. There is nothing.

“Law”

First, the 70th of the people’s Republic of China on public security administration punishment law provides: for profit-making purposes, provide conditions for gambling, or gambling gambling is relatively large, 5th detained or fined a maximum of 500 yuan in serious cases, 10th to 15th over detained and fined a maximum of between 3000 and 500 Yuan.

II, and Ministry of public security on handle gambling illegal case applies legal several problem of notification (public pass word “2015” 30th,) Nineth article provides: not to profit for purpose, relatives Zhijian for with property WINS of playing mahjong, and play poker, entertainment activities, not punishment; relatives zhiwai of other people Zhijian for with few property WINS of playing mahjong, and play poker, entertainment activities, not punishment.

Third, the first paragraph of Article No. 303 of the criminal law of the people’s Republic of China: for the purpose of profit, gambling or gambling industry, Office for three years, criminal detention or control, and a fine.

Four, and highest method, and highest check on handle gambling criminal case specific application legal several problem of explained (method release “2005” 3rd,) first article provides: to profit for purpose, has following case one of of, belongs to criminal No. 303 article provides of “mob gambling”: (a) Organization 3 people above gambling, tapped benefit amounts cumulative reached 5000 Yuan above of; (ii) Organization 3 people above gambling, gambling amounts cumulative reached 50,000 yuan above of; (three) Organization 3 people above gambling, CANDU number totaled more than 20; (iv) organized citizens of 10 or more people to offshore gambling, taking kickbacks, agent fee. Nineth article: not for profit-making purposes, win’s entertainment with small amount of property, as well as provide entertainment such as chess and cards room charge only the normal places and business practices, such as the cost of services, are not punishable for gambling.

“Standard”

On this proposal at the first meeting of the Consultative Forum, I had devoted “mahjong entertainment” and “mahjong gambling” consult municipal Public Security Bureau on the legal boundaries as well as law-enforcement standards rule of detachment and the security management team. The answer is:

, Relatives with property between winning and play mahjong entertainment, if not for profit-making purposes shall not be penalized.

Second, people other than relatives with small amount of property between winning and play mahjong entertainment shall not be penalized.

As for the “small property of winning or losing,” definition of the national level and the local level no specific amount. Probably more than 10 years ago, the municipal Public Security Bureau on standards of law enforcement in such cases there was an internal guidance, a deck of cards winning amount stipulated in that year of less than 200 Yuan, can be identified as “small property wins”, not to punish. This guidance is handling unit at the service the master details, to the norms of public security law enforcement discretion, has not announced to the public.

Both the legal situation three, are not qualified to play mahjong places. But if the public is at home playing mahjong, not to law enforcement of public security organs, unless there are masses, there are definite clues.

“My advice”

2017 the Government work report: adhere to the people-centered, formulation and implementation of solving people problems of general interest programmes … …

I’ve been through, “US Attorney women-lawyer” app, did a survey of the public surveyed 173 people, 145 people say they know how to play mahjong, accounted for as much as 83%; 159 people playing mahjong is mainly dominated by entertainment, accounted for as much as 91%. In Wuhan, Mahjong has become the most popular intellectual sport activities, the vitality of popular entertainment, its existence is a reality that cannot be avoided by anyone. There are a lot of people, including public officials, because they do not know the limits of statutory standards, playing mahjong, she often scary, it is an undisputed fact. Therefore, Mahjong is small, it is a question of general interest of ordinary people.

First, suggested standardizing “mahjong activities”, based on the rule of law thinking to clarify “mahjong entertainment” and “mahjong gambling” legal limits.

Second, recommendations to the losers Pack of cards up to the number of (commonly known as Wuhan: caps) so-called “mahjong entertainment” and “mahjong gambling” boundaries, more grounded, but the average person is easy to grasp.

Third, given that most people playing mahjong entertainment as the main objective, it is recommended that specific amount of Wuhan most Ma You may refer to the current standards. People living and entertainment levels increased, specific standards or may be appropriate to have room to relax.

Four, it is particularly important, the standards determined, cannot become locked in a drawer “drawer file”, recommends the adoption of an appropriate way to let people know. Otherwise, the common people “Yoriko in red bar” bawling still uneasy.
