After getting a mere 20 Chinese cents (0.03 U.S. dollars) for tipping authorities off about a supermarket selling expired bread, a Chinese customer took the local government to court and won himself a much bigger reward.

Last March, a man surnamed Jia from China's eastern Jinan City bought the bread from a local supermarket and sought redress from the district's food and drug administration department, the Paper reported.

The food and drug authority decided in his favor, ordering the shop to pay a 50,000 yuan fine and reimburse 2.02 yuan worth of bread money. Jia, however, discovered that he would only get paid 20 cents, less than one-tenth of his loss.

Feeling unsatisfied, he decided to take the administrator to the district court.

There he met a setback as the court ruled the reward was valid. It quoted a municipal-level reward plan, which offers informants a bounty worthy 10 percent of the product in question if they succeeded in reporting food- and drug-related discrepancies.

Jia appealed the case quoting a national-level reward plan rolled out in 2017 by the country's food and drug administration aimed at improving China's food and drug safety.

The reward mechanism, which overrides the municipal plan, predicates that the informants should be rewarded at least 2,000 yuan (290 U.S. dollars) for reporting misconduct.

After the intermediate court in Jinan reviewed the case, it announced the final verdict on Wednesday, ruling that Jia was underpaid and ordering the district food and drug administration department to pay the customer at least 2,000 yuan based on the national-level reward plan.

One old saying goes like this: The ordinary citizens take food as heaven-like-important thing! That concerns your life quality and health!

China Central Government keeps stressing FOOD SAFETY since when Wen Jiabao was prime minister.
More than sad to see that China government at all levels took it lightly.
However, China government could not see that final result will be government officials themselves will be consuming that food!

China government practises human relationship is above law!
This is the greatest barrier to clear!
Otherwise, it will need a great disaster to draw attention!
Unfortunately, after a few heavy strokes and the whole China forgets after a few days!
This is the REAL PROBLEM!

Most government officials are in for a period of a few years!
Then, their successors will take over!
Their successors could continue to implement or even replace them with whatever they like, as they are in command.
This harm is never looked at seriously but cherish as being INNOVATIVE!
Some even are promoted to higher public offices!
So, what is the worry!
