China sets up 3,000 collegiate benches in courts to defend people's rights


09:08, September 27, 2012

YINCHUAN, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Nearly 3,000 collegiate benches have been established in county-level courts and higher in China to defend people's rights, according to statistics released at a symposium held in Yinchuan.

Practices for having collegiate benches for women's rights exist in most local people's courts, according to the symposium on collegiate benches centered on women's rights held in the capital of northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region on Wednesday.

"The establishment and development of collegiate benches aimed at defending women's rights is an effective way for the court system to listen to people's voices and respond to people's concerns," Zhen Yan, vice president of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), said at the event.

The Supreme People's Court, which carried out the symposium with the ACWF, has set up a special organ on collegiate benches to supervise and assess cases involving women's rights, according to the seminar.

Property rights were a major concern among women, as such content accounts for more than one-third of letters and complaints that the ACWF receives from women.
