Senior Party official calls for smooth implementation of death penalty reform
font size    

A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has called on people's courts around China to ensure the smooth implementation of the death penalty reform.

Luo Gan, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau and secretary of the CPC Central Committee for Political and Legislative Affairs, made the call on Monday at a national conference on criminal trials.

Legislative changes to China's organic law in the people's courts were made last month when an amendment was ratified by China's top legislature, requiring all death penalties to be approved by the Supreme People's Court (SPC) beginning on Jan. 1, 2007.

Luo also asked the people's courts at various levels to further improve the capability of their personnel and crack down on criminal activities.

Luo also stressed that the protection of human rights should be improved by strictly carrying out relevant criminal procedures.

The meeting was presided over by Xiao Yang, president of the Supreme People's Court.
