Chinese police has arrested a man in the central province of Hubei for posting subversive messages on the Internet, said a police spokesman Tuesday.

The spokesman with the Hubei Provincial Public Security Bureau said that s ince 2001, 39-year-old Du Daobin had written and posted 28 articles on the Internet, inciting subversion of the state power and overthrow of socialist system.

Du, who worked with the medical insurance office of Yingcheng City before his arrest in November 2003, also accepted funds from overseas organizations and individuals, and in return helped them post articles harmful to state security on domestic websites, said the spokesman.

The spokesman said facts had shown that Du had overstepped his legal rights of criticizing government work and government functionaries with good intentions, and viciously incited subversion of state power through fabrications. His acts had made him a suspect of the crime of inciting subversion of state power.

Du had confessed to the major facts of his crime, and judicial inquiry into the case is still going on, said the spokesman.
