Chinese leader Xi Jinping delivered a lengthy, high-profile address at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing to mark the 70th anniversary of the Korean War. The Chinese regime refers to it as the “War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea.” Xi’s speech came after China’s state broadcaster CCTV finished airing a 20-episode documentary series on the conflict.

(U.S. National Archives and Records Administration)Xi began his speech on Oct. 23 by repeating the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda that the United States first invaded North Korea, and Chinese troops sacrificed themselves to resist U.S. aggression.

But since the introduction of the “rule of six” and the three-tier system, the latest figures from the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) show that 1,103 Fixed Penalty Notices were issued in England over the last month.
Fixed Penalty Notices (FPN) are fines that can be directly meted out by police if they reasonably believe an offence has been committed, without the need to go through a court.
The figures, published on Oct. 28, also reveal that police were unable to trace over 1,000 people who were supposed to be under quarantine after arriving from abroad.
In total, police have issued 125 fines to travelers breaching self-isolation rules since they were introduced.
Although crime has fallen or remained stable in most categories during the pandemic and lockdowns, assaults on police officers have risen by one fifth, according to the report.
“We have seen an increase in enforcement activity in the last month, reflecting new regulations coming into effect, and a shift towards quicker enforcement against those knowingly breaking the rules,” said NPCC Chair, Martin Hewitt.
“Where people don’t listen to police officers’ encouragement then we will take action. That is our job and I believe the public expects us to do that.”
Hewitt said he was “extremely concerned at the rise in assaults against emergency service workers.” He added, “We will not hesitate to prosecute anyone who uses violence against frontline staff.”
Since March, police have handed out a total of 20,223 fines in England and Wales relating to regulations aimed at curbing the spread of the CCP virus.
Almost half of the fines over the last month have been for breaking the “rule of six,” and around a quarter for failing to wear face-coverings.
In the last month, just 64 FPNs were handed out for breaching rules that ban gatherings of over 30, which carries a maximum £10,000 fine.
In England, breaching most COVID-19 rules carries a £100 for the first offence, which is halved to £50 if paid within 14 days. The fine rises by double on repeat offences up to a maximum of £3,200.
However, since Sept. 28. breaking self-isolation rules has carried a £1,000 fine, which can increase to up to £10,000 for repeat offences “and for the most egregious breaches.”

The Epoch Times recently obtained a document classified as “top secret” by Chinese authorities. It exposed that China’s judicial and public security systems have been committing the crime of genocide against Falun Gong practitioners for nearly 20 years. The document is a “judicial opinion” jointly issued on Nov. 30, 2000 by five departments: the Supreme Court, the Supreme Procuratorate, the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of National Security, and the Ministry of Justice. It clearly stipulated that “political and legal departments at all levels must resolutely implement the important instructions of” then Party leader Jiang Zemin to crack down on Falun Gong, and listed various charges and punishments targeting different actions of Falun Gong practitioners. For instance, when Falun Gong practitioners print and distribute Falun Gong flyers, the charge…
