Supreme court, procuratorate clears up judicial interpretations


20:32, April 23, 2013

BEIJING, April 23 (Xinhua) -- The two leading judicial bodies in China have abolished 755 judicial interpretation documents in the last two years in order to streamline the country's legal system, according to a report submitted to the top legislature on Tuesday.

The Supreme People's Court (SPC) and the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) have issued more than 4,200 legal documents, with 755, or 18 percent, being terminated in the latest clean-up, said Xin Chunying, vice-chairwoman of the Legislative Affairs Commission of the National People's Congress Standing Committee, the country's top legislature.

The clean-up has been the largest since the founding of New China in 1949, Xin said while delivering the report at a three-day bimonthly legislative session that opened on Tuesday.

The move aims to "safeguard legal unity and proper implementation of law," she added.

"Over years, judicial interpretations have played an important role in properly implementing the law. However, with social and economic development and the improved legislative work, some interpretations do not agree with the law or are contradictory," she said.

The Legislative Affairs Commission proposes in the report that formulation of judicial interpretations should be further regulated and regularly improved.

It says judicial interpretations should not go against the law and should be within the scope of the law.
