Two Chinese officials—one working for the Chinese regime's central bank and the other for the statistics agency—have been jailed for leaking financial information the regime has deemed classified.

Wu Chaoming and Sun Zhen were sentenced to six and five years in prison for profiting from stock trades made, based on leaked information, and for taking money to lecture on economic topics that the regime has labeled out-of-bounds.

The CCP maintains a tight grip on financial information that affects China's stock market and has made it illegal to share information that in other countries would be considered public.
