It was reported by some Chinese media that thousands of citizens' credit reports were listed both on the government website and in the local newspaper of Suining county, Jiangsu province, with their real name, gender, adress and scores of credit fined or gained within the past two months.

A case in point is Gu Zishuang, a citizen from Suining county, who had 420 "creidt points" deducted for not paying his lones 14 times from January to February. He received a D-level honesty label, the lowest one, from the local government.

The full score will be 1,000 points, and every citizen will be given a credit label from A to D, according to their scores.

Those with A level will have a greater priority in career promotion, school entrance and social secure application while those with D level will be stripped of the oportunity for assistance from the community and application for a business license.

What do you think of the practice of the local government? Is it legal or not to publish citizens' information, esp such private information without their agreement?

My first reaction was - it's highly illegal but I believe China has no data protection law, which is very bad. As long as such a law does not exist it's not illegal to publish private datas, or so I believe.

These are not for the civil servants, but for the ordinary citizens. Wang Tianqi, secretary for Suining county said that the purpose is to create a system that reminds people that being honest and credible will benifit your life in the long run, and cheating and dishonesty will do your harm? And I wonder who gave him or the local government the right to judge people by posting online the citizens' private information?

I totally agree with you. China has no law on personal information protection so such thing happens. But it is a pity that it is an act from the government.
