HOLDERS of Chinese green cards can apply for “foreign permanent resident ID cards” from today Josh Jones Youth Jersey , the Ministry of Public Security announced yesterday.

The new machine-readable cards with embedded chips are similar to Chinese citizens’ identity cards and will replace the current permanent residence cards.

The new cards can be used to access finance, education, hospital, transport, telecommunications, tax, social insurance, property registration and legal services in China with no other personal documents required, according to the ministry.

It earlier demanded accelerated upgrading of Internet systems of the railway, airlines, banks, insurance agencies and banks to facilitate use of cards held by foreigners.

China Southern Airlines said foreigners can buy air tickets from the company with the new cards, though they can still use the current cards as long as they are valid.

The new cards will be issued nationwide from June 16. Applicants will receive the cards within 20 days from the date of application, and the documents required are the same as those needed to apply for the old cards, the ministry said.

Green card holders who live in Shanghai can apply to the issuers of the original cards — the Exit-Entry Administration Bureau of the Shanghai Public Security Bureau and its branch offices, the bureau said.

Shanghai applicants can call 2895-1900 if they have any problems regarding the process.

There were 175,931 foreigners living in Shanghai at the end of 2015, with 2,404 of them green card holders, according to the city’s statistics bureau.


WASHINGTON, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- A U.S. Senate report that reveals a brutal torture program of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) after the 911 terrorist attacks has drawn heavy criticism at home and abroad.

The CIA repeatedly misled the public, Congress and the White House about its aggressive questioning and torture on detainees after the terrorist attacks in 2001, according to the Senate Intelligence Committee report released Tuesday.

The CIA downplayed the brutality of the interrogations and exaggerated the usefulness of the information it gathered, including its role in setting in motion the U.S. raid that killed al-Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden, says the report.

The 6,000-page report also found that the "Enhanced Interrogation Techniques" program escaped effective scrutiny by outsiders long after its inception in 2002. CIA records showed that then President George W. Bush was never fully briefed by the agency on torturous interrogation techniques until 2006, it says.

The report contains details about waterboarding, sexual threats and other controversial methods to obtain information, and finds those techniques largely ineffective and poorly managed.

Some of the detainees were kept awake for up to 180 hours, or more than seven days, usually in standing or stress positions. Interrogators also placed the interrogations above medical needs, such as treating bullet wounds, the report says. Some detainees were also placed in ice water "baths".

Conditions at CIA detention sites were poor, says the report, and detainees at a detention facility called "COBALT" were kept in complete darkness, and lack of heat at the facility likely contributed to the death of a detainee.

The White House and President Barack Obama backed the decision to release the report, despite warning from lawmakers and some officials inside the administration that it could lead to a backlash against Americans.

Obama said in a written statement that Bush-era CIA interrogation techniques "did significant damage to America's standing in the world and made it harder to pursue our interests with allies and partners."

"These harsh methods were not only inconsistent with our values as nation, they did not serve our broader counter-terrorism efforts or our national security interests," Obama said.

Republican Senator John McCain said harsh interrogations did little to make Americans safer, adding it will produce more bad than good intelligence.

Anthony Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, called the report "shocking," saying,"It is impossible to read it without feeling immense outrage that our government engaged in these terrible crimes."

"The government officials who authorized illegal activity need to be held accountable," Romero said.

There was also international consternation at the findings.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said the use of torture and other violations of human rights to battle terrorists was ultimately counter-productive.

"Let us be clear: Torture is wrong. Torture is always wrong," Cameron told a press conference in Ankara, where he met Turkish officials.

"Those of us who want to see a safer, more secure world want to see extremism defeated. We won't succeed if we lose our moral authority," Cameron noted.

The UN special rapporteur on human rights and counter-terrorism, Ben Emmerson, also said the report revealed a "clear policy orchestrated at a high level within the Bush administration" and called for prosecution of those officials.
