All localities began to stop scanning code for payment at gas stations
According to China Youth Daily, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate and the emergency management department jointly released a number of typical cases of public interest litigation in the field of work safety. Among them, Haining people’s Procuratorate of Zhejiang Province urged the rectification of hidden dangers of code scanning payment in gas stations. In this administrative public interest litigation case, in view of the potential safety problems caused by code scanning payment in explosive dangerous areas of gas stations, the procuratorial organ, supported by expert argumentation and technical experiments, reviewed through public hearing, issued pre litigation procuratorial suggestions to the administrative organ, urged it to carry out special rectification of code scanning payment business in gas stations according to law, and eliminated the potential safety problems.
The prosecutor said that with the popularization and application of mobile payment, the service mode of “don’t get off the car to refuel” in gas stations and mobile phone code scanning payment are popular, but the power transmitted by code scanning payment may cause radio frequency sparks, which has major security risks.
Hu Weilie, director of the eighth procuratorial Office of the Supreme People’s Procuratorate, pointed out that at present, problems such as overlapping safety supervision functions, unclear boundaries, lack of supervision, inadequate supervision and lax law enforcement are still prominent; responsibilities between different levels are unclear, and the phenomenon of “multiple law enforcement” and “repeated law enforcement” still exists at the upper and lower levels in the same region. Procuratorial organs to carry out public interest litigation in the field of production safety is conducive to solving these law enforcement difficulties.
