China Takes Another Step in Improving Rule of Law
Another initiative has been taken to strengthen the rule of law. On March 31, the General Office of the Communist Party's Central Committee and the General Office of the State Council jointly issued details of a set of regulations to prevent officials from interfering with judicial cases.
At the Central Committee's fourth plenary session in October, the leadership called for a system to allow instances of abuse to be recorded and reported, and to bring the errant officials to book. Preparation went ahead in a high-profile manner. The regulations are by far the most comprehensive yet designed to ensure justice and improve the credibility of the judiciary.
