BEIJING - Admitting problems in China's judicial system, chief justice Wang Shengjun Sunday vowed to push forward reform to realize judicial justice.

China needs to improve the work of courts and deepen the reform of its judicial system, Wang said in a report on the work of the Supreme People's Court delivered at a meeting of the annual parliamentary session.

"Some courts have not done well in improving transparency of court affairs and promoting democratic judicial system," he said.

Some judges behaved badly and had poor working style while irregular practice in court proceedings, delay of hearing could still be found, he said.

A small number of judges were even found taking bribes and perverting the law, he added.

This year the supreme court will work to reform the court procedures, speed up proceedings of civil cases involving a small sum of money, and improve rules for citizens to observe trials, he said.

Chinese courts will better accept and respond to supervision from lawmakers, political advisors and the public, he said.

He urged more efforts in accepting supervision from the general public, including soliciting opinions from the public, giving more heed to media reports and voices of netizens as well as promptly responding to social concerns.
