China to end judicial corruption by commutation

2014-03-08 00:17 Xinhua Web Editor: Wang Fan

The Ministry of Justice on Friday announced measures dealing with judicial corruption in commutations of sentences and granting probation and out-of-jail medical treatment.

The Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the Communist Party of China Central Committee on Feb. 24 released an instruction, saying "terms and procedures on commutation, parole and serving a sentence outside jail for medical reasons should be stringent and within the framework of the law."

The instruction focuses on three kinds of crimes, namely taking advantage of one's position, disrupting financial order and financial fraud, and organizing mafia-style groups.

The Ministry of Justice said it is going to launch an online platform so that such cases can be monitored online.

The ministry plans to verify case-by-case remissions granted within the last three years to criminals involved in the three target crimes.
