A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Saturday urged prosecution agencies nationwide to uphold the CPC's leadership and fully perform their supervisory roles.

Zhou Yongkang, secretary of the CPC Central Committee's Commission for Political and Legal Affairs, said procuratorates should step up efforts to help "create a market featuring order and integrity, a society of harmony and stability, a government of honesty and high efficiency and a legal environment of fairness and justice."

Zhou made the remarks in a letter to the 13th National Procuratorial Work Meeting held in Yinchuan, capital of northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. The meeting is held every five years.

During the 11th Five-Year Plan period (2006-2010), prosecution agencies nationwide made remarkable achievements in "strengthening legal supervision, self-supervision and development of high-quality prosecutors, said Zhou, also a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

Their work contributed greatly to "safeguarding people's lawful rights and interests, maintaining social stability, protecting the dignity of the socialist legal system, combating corruption and boosting social and economic progress," he said.
