BEIJING, April 15 -- China's top procuratorate on Tuesday launched an official account on mobile massaging application WeChat account, in an effort to boost transparency.
The Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) also launched its mobile news portal run by sohu.com, after opening official microblog accounts on three platforms, sina.com, qq.com and jcrb.com in March.
The SPP said its WeChat account will disclose information about proceedings in major cases, important judicial interpretations and the SPP's work.
The SPP said launching the WeChat account is aimed at upholding people's rights to know and to participate in judicial matters and at building its social communication capacity in the new media era.
The top procuratorate also said it expected the move to inspire local procuratorates to adapt to new communication environments.
