Publish Date:04-25-2021
Recently, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) issued the Plan for Development of the Procuratorial Work during the Fourteenth Five-Year Plan Period.
The Plan urges to severely punish sexual assaults on minors, and implement the policy of intervening in cases in advance and recording the whole process of inquiring the victim with the application of the audio and video synchronization. For cases involving juvenile victims, a "one-time" questioning mechanism should be implemented effectively. Efforts should be made to strengthen national judicial assistance for minors, amend and reinforce the Guidelines for Criminal Prosecution Involving Minors, and establish rules for the examination and judgment of juvenile verbal evidence.
The procuratorate is required to steadily increase the application rate of conditional non-prosecution of minors, and perfect the system of hierarchical interventions for minors who have committed offence, so as to punish offenders and educate delinquent minors according to law. The SPP and provincial procuratorates are required to issue white papers on juvenile procuratorial work every year. They should work together to strengthen the cooperation mechanism for judicial protection of minors and social support system, and accelerate the construction of a platform for assistance, education, and protection of minors' rights. Besides, the Plan calls for enhancing the supervision over cases infringing on the lawful rights and interests of minors, and improving the system of centralized jurisdiction over cases involving minors.
