Senior Chinese leader urges balance between law enforcement, social sensitivity


11:07, November 12, 2011

BEIJING, Nov. 11 (Xinhua) -- Senior leader Zhou Yongkang on Friday urged Chinese judiciary and police officers to "creatively" handle cases in a bid to achieve a balance between law enforcement and social sensitivity.

Zhou, secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Political and Legislative Affairs, made the remarks at a meeting with Zhan Hongli, a veteran female judge of a juvenile court in southern Fujian province.

Zhou urged judiciary workers and police to learn from Zhan, who has not received a single complaint of misjudging in nearly 500 criminal cases involving 1,140 juveniles.

In her 27 years of work in courts, she cared for the juveniles like a mother and creatively worked out a feasible judgment method for handling cases of young offenders, said Zhou, who is also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

Zhan addressed saving the juveniles with education and persuasion as well as helping them go back to school and reintegrate into society, an approach which had positive benefits and won favorable comments from the young offenders' families and the public, Zhou said.

Zhou also urged judiciary and police officers to enhance the quality of law enforcement and case handling by adhering to principles of fairness and transparency, so as to better settle conflicts among the people.
