BEIJING, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- China's Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) will require procurators to report others' attempts to use lobbying to influence the outcome of legal cases.

The move is expected to deter and reduce obstructions of justice during prosecutions, according to a statement issued at a national conference for prosecutorial agencies held in Beijing on Monday.

Some local procuratorates in China have already used the practice, which requires procurators to report bribery attempts, as well as meetings between prosecutorial staff and suspects, attorneys or relatives involved in the same case.

The SPP will work to improve anti-corruption efforts and strengthen supervision over the use of prosecutorial power, the statement said.
