According to the amendment, "Information transmissions should be immediately stopped if they are found to contain state secrets."

According to a Xinhua report, this entails that the discoverer of such leaks has to immediately inform public and state security departments.

Amendments have to undergo three readings before being adopted by China's legislature.
