China's chief justice urges boosting public confidence in justice system


08:33, December 23, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- China's Chief Justice Wang Shengjun has urged the country's courts and judicial staff members at all levels to work to promote the credibility of, and the public's confidence in, the justice system.

Wang, president of the Supreme People's Court (SPC), made the remarks at a conference held here on Thursday for the presidents of higher people's courts nationwide.

Judicial fairness should be ensured to protect social justice and bolster public confidence, Wang said.

Wang told courts and judges to exercise jurisdiction independently in accordance with the law.

Moreover, Wang said efforts should be made to make judicial services more accessible and transparent for the public.

He called on more courts to publish their judgements and decisions online. Courts should also be open-minded about supervision by relevant authorities, including the people's congress, procuratorial organs and the public, he said.

Furthermore, Wang asked the judicial system to maintain the country's economic stability by effectively punishing illegal fund-raising crimes, properly handling labor and contract disputes as well as bankruptcy cases triggered by some enterprises' financial strains, and crack down on illegal hot money inflows.

According to documents issued at the conference, between January and November this year, local courts at all levels across the country have received over 10.5 million new cases and concluded judicial procedures on over 9 million cases, up 5.09 percent and 4.08 percent, respectively, on a year-on-year basis.

The SPC received 9,834 new cases and concluded 8,684 cases over the same period, up 1.61 percent and 1.13 percent, respectively.
