History

From the beginning of 2014 until 2015 there were a series of incidents involving illegal sentence commutations and escapes from the Guangdong prison system.[3]

The prison in Jieyang created an online inmate information system in April 2014; this is the first such program in Mainland China. In September 2014 the bureau announced that it was going to begin publishing inmate information online by the end of 2014.[2]
