China’s parliament has voted to make disrespecting the country's national anthem a criminal offense with a penalty of up to three years in prison.

The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress added an amendment to the country’s criminal law to include punishment for anyone found “seriously” disrespecting the national anthem in public.

Xinhua, China’s official news agency, reports those found guilty of violating the ban on disrespecting the national anthem could also be deprived of their political rights.
