In China, massively destroying coffins In Jiangxi Province, located in the southeast of China, the government's decision prohibited the holding of traditional burials. On the territory of the region, permission is granted exclusively for cremation, in order to conserve land resources, reports the South China Morning Post. Representatives of the authorities are forced to forcibly remove wooden coffins for their subsequent destruction. Eyewitnesses claim that some elderly Chinese, expressing their protest, lay down in coffins to prevent their confiscation. Many residents expressed dissatisfaction with the taboo, which led to the appearance of "body dealers" working in the province. So, the families of the deceased, wishing to fulfill the last will of the parent, resorted to the help of scammers, changing the body of a loved one to a stranger who was subsequently sent to cremation. The certificate obtained in this case could protect the grieving families from the menacing eyes of the authorities who demanded an appropriate document and imposed heavy fines in case of disobedience.
