NANJING, July 30 (Xinhua) -- Novelty ringtones lose their funwhen they announce your dirty secrets.
A court in eastern China recently introduced a shaming ringtoneto embarrass debtors and pressure them to pay the money theyowe.
The Guanyun County People's Court in Jiangsu Province teamed upwith a local telecommunication operator to design a "specialringtone" for local "laolai" (those who avoid repaying theirdebts).
The measure is aimed at shaming debtors who go missing afterbeing ordered to repay debts, according to the court.
If anyone calls the debtor, the ringtone tells the caller: "Thesubscriber you are calling has been put on a blacklist by theGuanyun County Court for failing to repay their debts. Please urgethe person to fulfill his legal obligations. The Guanyun CountyPeople's Court appreciates your support. Thank you!"
"The ringtone is designed to warn debtors and force them torepay their debts as soon as possible," said Pan Xingjun with thecourt.
Pan said that the ringtone let laolai feel the pressure fromfriends and relatives.
"The ringtone will disgrace debtors and force them out of theirhideouts," Wang Yong, an employee with the court, told thePaper. "The debtors' relatives and friends will be reminded ofthe debtor's lack of credibility and they can avoid beingswindled."
"They cannot cancel the ringtone by themselves unless they repaytheir debts, and all mobile phone numbers registered under theirname will be covered by the ringtone," Pan said.
China adopted a nationwide real-name registration policy formobile phone number subscribers on Sept. 1, 2010. All new registersneed to provide their ID cards to telecom operators to obtain newphone numbers.
"The court will give proof to help cancel the ringtone once theyrepay the debts," according to Pan.
So far, ten debtors have been put on the list by the Guanyuncourt. Most of the debtors are self-employed people who have hiddenor transferred their assets to avoid repaying debts.
"They have the ability to repay, but refuse to carry out theirlegal obligations," the court said. "Some of them fabricated proofto resist repaying debts."
The court said it would work with more telecom operators tofurther enforce the measure.
When the ringtone was launched on the morning of July 20, alaolai immediately called one of the judges in the afternoon tocancel it, promising to repay the 100,000 yuan (14,800 U.S.dollars) he owed in installments.
Guanyun is not the only place to adopt the ringtone policy. Thecity of Huangshi in central China's Hubei Province and the city ofDengfeng in Henan Province recently introduced similarmeasures.
Many laolai have tried a variety of ways to shun repayment.
On Friday, a court in Wuhan, capital of Hubei Province, saidthat a 59-year-old woman had plastic surgery in an attempt todisguise herself to avoid repaying 25 million yuan of debt.Enditem
HOUSTON, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Monday night renewed his charge against illegal immigrants as he spoke in a rally attended by about 20,000 people in the northern Texas city of Dallas.
In his hour-long speech at the American Airlines Center where the rally was held, Trump, who formally announced his candidacy for president of the United States in the 2016 election in June, described the United States as "a dumping ground for the rest of the world," according to local TV station KPRC.
Since June, the outspoken GOP front-runner has been criticized by the public over his remarks about "anchor babies" and gang members among the immigrants living in the United States illegally. He also called Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals in his June speech.
On Monday, the nearly 70-year-old Trump also mentioned his plan to build a wall along the southern U.S. border with Mexico.
"We are going to build a wall," he said. "Walls work. We have to stop illegal immigration. We have to do it."
Meanwhile, more than 1,000 people protested the Trump campaign outside the rally on Monday night. Some of them carried signs criticizing Trump. The protest, organized by the North Texas chapter of the League of United Latin American Citizens, was called as a "Dump Trump" rally.
Currently, about 17 presidential candidates are trying hard to seek the nomination of the Republican Party, and Trump, an American real estate developer, is one of the front-runners.
