China to modify more rules in line with criminal procedure law revision


08:56, March 23, 2012

BEIJING, March 22 (Xinhua) -- The Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) will draft or modify more rules in accordance with the newly amended Criminal Procedure Law in a bid to ensure effective law enforcement at the procuratorate level.

The revised law, adopted earlier this month during China's annual legislative session, includes the phrase "respecting and protecting human rights" in its first chapter on basic principles.

The revised law stresses protecting suspects and defendants from illegal restriction, detention and arrest.

"In order to ensure effective law enforcement during the procuratorial stage, the Supreme People's Procuratorate will map out new rules and modify current explanatory documents to accompany the newly revised law," said a statement released Thursday after a meeting of the SPP.

According to the statement, the new rules and modifications will concern issues such as technological investigative methods, home surveillance for occupational crimes, information sharing and cooperation among procuratorates, courts and detention centers, the exclusion of illegally obtained evidence and simplified court hearing procedures.

The statement urged procurators across the country to "adjust their law enforcement efforts accordingly and ensure a smooth transition" for the newly amended Criminal Procedure Law.

China's current Criminal Procedure Law was enacted in 1979 and first amended in 1996.
