Cam­pus vi­o­lence con­tin­ues to drop

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

China has seen a con­tin­u­ous drop in cases of vi­o­lence on school cam­puses in the past three years, thanks to im­prove­ments in the Chi­nese Crim­i­nal Pro­ce­dure Law and ef­forts aimed at pro­tect­ing ju­ve­niles. The num­ber of of­fenses on cam­puses, in­clud­ing kinder­gartens, pri­mary schools and col­leges, ex­ceeded 1,000 in 2015, but fell by 16.5 per­cent in 2016 and de­clined an­other 13.4 per­cent in 2017, ac­cord­ing to a re­port is­sued by the China Jus­tice Big Data In­sti­tute on Sept 5. Most cases of vi­o­lence on cam­pus were heard in He­nan, Guizhou and Shan­dong prov­inces, and more than half of the of­fenses in­volved triv­ial mat­ters, said the in­sti­tute, which op­er­ates un­der the Supreme Peo­ple’s Court.
