Chinese police Tuesday began a nationwide campaign against Internet-based trade in counterfeit documents.

Police asked e-commerce websites, online forums and search engines to delete the illegal webpages that sell counterfeit documents, certificates and diplomas, said a Ministry of Public Security statement.

The statement also said the ministry will step up supervision of websites.

Websites will be punished if they fail to delete the illegal information, the statement said.

Citizen tip-offs are welcome and police have established accounts in online forums and chat rooms to receive them, the statement said.

The campaign will last until the end of January.
