New regulations to protect detainees, state assets


08:54, April 01, 2012

BEIJING, March 31 (Xinhua) -- A number of regulations will take effect on Sunday to protect detainees' rights, state assets and the safety of motorists.

A regulation will require detention centers to better protect their detainees' legitimate rights and interests, prohibiting the centers from insulting, abusing or imposing physical punishments on detainees.

The detention centers should inform detainees of their legal rights and the rules they should abide by, as well as provide their relatives with timely notices, the regulation says.

The regulation also requires the centers to organize physical and cultural activities for their inmates, specifying that inmates should be permitted to have no fewer than two hours of outdoor activity daily.

The regulation bans forced labor at detention houses, and requires them to provide drug rehabilitation treatment for detained drug addicts.

A newly-amended financial regulation for public institutions will prohibit them from using governmental financial allocations to invest in stocks, futures, funds or corporate bonds overseas.

A regulation for motor vehicle operators will also go into effect on Sunday, raising the requirements for obtaining a driver's license and creating stricter training conditions.
