The punishment of dishonesty is an important content of the credit rule of law, writes Wang Wei in the book “Social Credit Rating“. “The punishment of dishonesty is not a precise legal concept,” he says, “so we must use legal technology to analyze and define it.”
In the market punishment, industrial punishment, social punishment, administrative punishment, judicial punishment and other punishment mechanisms, the punishment by the public power is the focus of the credit rule of law, he points out: “Administrative disciplinary measures are not all power-limited measures. In essence, the administrative blacklist measure of power restriction belongs to administrative punishment, but it does not violate the principle of “one punishment for one violation”. In the future, when legislating the social credit law, we should typologically regulate dishonesty punishment and focus on the administrative punishment regulating the constitutive elements, punishment measures and procedures, credit restoration mechanism and other issues.”
