BEIJING, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- Zhou Yongkang, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Monday stressed protection of people's legitimate rights and interests in judicial work.

Addressing a function held every four years to honor courts and judges, Zhou, secretary of the Committee of Political and Legislative Affairs of the CPC Central Committee, urged steady efforts to facilitate people's moves to guard their own rights through litigations.

"The goal is to let the public truly feel that the country's courts and judges are of the people and for the people," said Zhou, who is also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

Furthermore, Zhou said, judicial fairness should be ensured to protect social justice, calling on courts to handle cases strictly in accordance with the law.

"Judicial organs should strive to make their handling of every case able to stand the test by laws, history and the people," he said.
