Chinese procuratorates intensify supervision of civil cases


Over the past three years, Chinese procuratorial agencies have strengthened their supervision work regarding civil case proceedings to ensure sound implementation of the country's first Civil Code, according to a statement from the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) on Tuesday.

Procuratorial agencies in China have intensified their supervision over effective civil rulings, civil enforcement and civil trials, said the SPP statement.

Procuratorial agencies nationwide have accepted 230,000 cases regarding supervision of effective civil rulings and mediation documents, most of which concerned contract disputes, the statement said, adding that after review, the procuratorial agencies have lodged protests in 13,000 cases and issued suggestions for a retrial in 23,000 cases.

The procuratorates also accepted 220,000 cases involving supervision of civil enforcement proceedings and 190,000 cases of civil trial supervision, issuing a total of 360,000 procuratorial suggestions, over 90 percent of which were adopted by relevant courts, the SPP statement said.

It added that procuratorates nationwide have enhanced their efforts in forestalling and defusing financial risks. Over the past two years, they have accepted more than 4,800 cases involving companies as well as securities, insurance and negotiable instruments. Protests were lodged in over 240 cases, and procuratorial suggestions were issued in more than 270 cases.

Moreover, prosecutors have worked to support civil actions in over 108,000 cases filed by migrant workers.

The SPP on Tuesday also published another batch of typical cases on Civil Code implementation, covering issues of judicial discretion, illegal credit card lending, traffic accident liabilities and property rights.

China's Civil Code took effect on January 1, 2021.
