Investigations urged for wrongful convictions

By YANG ZEKUN | China Daily | Updated: 2021-04-08 00:00

The Supreme People's Procuratorate has asked procuratorial organs in all regions to conduct thorough investigations into wrongful convictions that have been corrected since 2018 and put forward suggestions on accountability for those involved.

Reports on investigations of the accountability of officials involved in wrongful convictions must be kept up to date and are at the very foundation of legal oversight, Procurator-General Zhang Jun said at a conference held by the Communist Party of China branch at the top procuratorate on Tuesday.

Officials who failed to perform their duties or exhibited serious statutory faults must be strictly investigated and held accountable, Zhang said.
