Lawmakers Begin Finalizing Tort Law To Protect Civil Rights

From Xinhua:

China’s top legislature began deliberating final revisions of the draft Tort Law Tuesday, including civil liabilities of construction firms in buildings safety.

The draft law, which was designed to provide compensation for those whose rights are violated, was tabled at the bi-monthly session of the Standing Committee of the 11th National People’s Congress (NPC), which opened Tuesday, for the fourth reading.

The 92-provision draft covers liabilities for a range of circumstances, including traffic accidents, medical accidents, work-related injuries, pollution, harm caused by other people’s pets and mental distress.
