The China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) alleges: “Some institutional or individual investors hold ‘virtual’ securities accounts or trade with borrowed accounts. As real-name registration is required by the law, this illicit conduct may damage other investors’ legitimate interests.”

The commission said it will clamp down on illegal activities in accordance with Chinese law and hand perpetrators over to the police.
