Caixin Explains: How China Took Aim at Bribery and Human Trafficking
China has been tightening its campaigns against bribery and the trafficking of women and children, as well as pandemic-related rule violations, in an effort to enhance protection of the rights and interests of its 1.41 billion residents.
The policy direction was clear to see in work reports from China’s top court and prosecutor revealed during the important annual political gatherings known as the “Two Sessions,” which showed an increase in criminal cases across the country.
