Mass disturbances to be handled in accordance with laws: senior Chinese leader


20:40, December 21, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official Zhou Yongkang said Wednesday that mass disturbances will be properly dealt with in accordance with the laws, as the Party prepares for its 18th National Congress next year.

Zhou, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks at a national tele-conference on political and legal issues.

He urged law-enforcement authorities to take a civil manner as the proper solution to mass disturbances and extreme events, and crack down on crimes and violence against national unity in order to maintain national safety and stability.

The authorities will also make efforts to safeguard the legitimate rights of businesses and positively provide legal services to support their sound development while punishing economic crimes, Zhou added.

In 2011, the country has made great progress in judicial restructuring and largely enhanced the level of social management in resolving civil disputes at their flash points, Zhou said.
