A Duty of Loyalty for Make Benefit the Glorious Nation of China

From the Guardian, Chinese lawyers must now swear loyalty to the leadership of the Communist Party:

China‘s justice ministry has ordered lawyers to take an oath of loyalty to the Communist party in an unusual move that has drawn condemnation from lawyers worried about the government’s attempts to rein them in.

The ministry issued a notice on Wednesday demanding that first-time applicants and lawyers who want to renew their licences have to take the oath.

I promise to faithfully fulfill the sacred mission of socialism with Chinese characteristics … loyalty to the motherland, its people, and uphold the leadership of the Communist party of China,” lawyers must say.
