China's Supreme People's Court (SPC) has formed a national network with 19 central organizations, including the People's Bank of China and the State Administration of Taxation, to ensure that court decisions are enforced in a timely manner.

While announcing the establishment of the network at a press conference held in Beijing Tuesday, SPC also released a document entitled "Opinions Pertaining to Issues in Building and Improving Linked Enforcement Mechanism."

The 25-article document, which came out after two years of drafting, says the network covers organizations such as:

-- The SPC and the Supreme People's Procuratorate

-- The Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the CPC Central Committee's Organization Department, Publicity Department and the Political and Legal Affairs Commission

-- National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministries of Public Security, Supervision, Justice, Civil Affairs, Land and Resources, as well as Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the People's Bank of China.

-- The State Administration of Taxation and the State Administration for Industry and Commerce

-- The regulatory commissions for banking and securities.

SPC spokesman Sun Jungong said these organizations should actively assist courts in enforcing court decisions, which had previously not always been done in a timely manner thus causing public complaints.

He said those who hinder or intervene in the enforcement of court decisions would be subject to investigation.

The assistance provided by relevant departments, such as local law-making and political advisory bodies, should be considered in assessing local governments' performance with regard to their "comprehensive management of social security," he said.

The document also specifies duties of real estate, tax, land and resources and banking regulatory bureaus, among others, in enforcing court decisions, which is partly aimed to stop people from hiding property to avoid paying compensation.
