Amendment improves rule of law

CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-06-30 00:00

Amending the Criminal Law is always necessary to keep the legal net up to date to protect the public.

A new draft amendment to the country's Criminal Law, the 11th of its kind, which Chinese lawmakers started to deliberate on Sunday, was for this purpose.

The new amendment covers the dangerous, potentially lethal behavior of objects being thrown or falling from high-rise apartment buildings, as there have been cases in which objects falling or thrown from a high-rise building have seriously injured, even killed people in recent years. Despite the legal documents by the Supreme People's Court about how such cases should be prosecuted, there is no specific criminal provision to refer to when such cases are heard.
