Google employees demand more oversight of China search engine plan

Updated : August 17, 2018 10:57 AM IST

Disclosure of the secretive effort has disturbed some Google employees and human rights advocacy organizations.
They are concerned that by agreeing to censorship demands, Google would validate China's prohibitions on free expression and violate the "don't be evil" clause in the company's code of conduct.
