Global Times reports on efforts to end repeated petitions by various judiciary agencies:
China’s judiciary and law enforcement agencies are seeking to establish a system to end repeated lawsuit-related public petitions, a trend that observers say takes up an excessive amount of their resources.
Experts, however, said that the government should warn against the abuse of such a system, which may hinder the course of justice.
The Supreme Court announced Wednesday that major and repeated lawsuit-related public petitions that have been handled and terminated by the Supreme Court and local high courts will not be addressed further, the Xinhua News Agency reported Thursday.
The Supreme People’s Procuratorate, the Ministry of Public Security and the Minis-try of Justice have also issued measures regarding the termination of lawsuit-related public petitions and the identification of unreasonable petitions, Xinhua reported.
