Chinese procurator-general Jia Chunwang is to deliver a work report Monday morning to wrap up the work of the Supreme People's Procuratorate in the past five years and set new tasks for this year.

Following are the highlights of Jia's report distributed to journalists at the third plenary meeting of the annual session of the 11th National People's Congress:

RISING CRIMINAL PROSECUTION

From 2003 to 2007, prosecution offices across the country issued more than 4.23 million arrest warrants for criminal suspects and brought 4.69 million persons to court, up 20.5 percent and 32.8 percent over the previous five-year period.

ANTI-CORRUPTION FIGHT

Prosecutors investigated more than 209,000 officials in nearly 180,000 cases of embezzlement, bribery, dereliction of duty and rights violation in the past five years, 13.2 percent and 9.9 percent down from the previous five years. But the number of convicted rose 30.7 percent to nearly 117,000.

Prosecutors nationwide investigated 35 officials at the provincial or ministerial level, 930 at the municipal level and nearly 14,000 at or above the county level for embezzlement, bribery, misappropriation of public funds in the past five years.

The prosecution offices nabbed a total of 4,547 fugitives of functionary crimes who were at large at home and abroad, retrieving economic losses exceeding 24.48 billion yuan.

HUMAN RIGHTS PROTECTION

Prosecutors looked into nearly 35,000 cases of violation of citizens' political and civil rights, involving 42,010 officials, in the past five years. Of them, 16,060 were found guilty, 2.3 times of the previous five years.

Nearly 1,200 government officials were prosecuted for hiding major work safety incidents or conniving at illegal production that led to serious consequences.

The number of criminal suspects under illegally prolonged custody by police department were reduced to 85 in 2007 from nearly 25,000 in 2003.

TASKS FOR 2008

-- Investigation and prevention of functionary crimes will be put at a more prominent position;

-- Efforts will be continued in handling major and important cases (relating to high-ranking officials and with more money involved) of corruption and cases most concerned by the public, and in establishing a mechanism for the punishment and prevention of corruption.
