He tells ju­di­cial, law en­force­ment agen­cies to im­prove their ca­pa­bil­i­ties

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - TOP NEWS - By XIN­HUA

Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping has urged all ju­di­cial and law en­force­ment agen­cies to im­prove their ca­pa­bil­i­ties by in­no­vat­ing mech­a­nisms and meth­ods to bet­ter guard against and han­dle risks and chal­lenges.

Xi, also general sec­re­tary of the Com­mu­nist Party of China Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and chair­man of the Cen­tral Mil­i­tary Com­mis­sion, made the re­marks in an in­struc­tion pre­sented at a cen­tral con­fer­ence on po­lit­i­cal and le­gal work in Bei­jing on Thurs­day.

Xi hailed the agen­cies’ con­tri­bu­tions to na­tional se­cu­rity and so­cial sta­bil­ity and praised the role they have played in so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.

The pres­i­dent em­pha­sized that 2017 will be an im­por­tant year for the Party and the state, and he asked ju­di­cial and law en­force­ment agen­cies to make the pro­tec­tion of na­tional po­lit­i­cal se­cu­rity, es­pe­cially the se­cu­rity of the regime and sys­tem, their top pri­or­ity.

Xi in­structed the agen­cies to im­prove their pre­dic­tion and early warn­ing sys­tems to en­sure a safe and sta­ble so­cial en­vi­ron­ment for the 19th Na­tional Congress of the CPC, which is sched­uled for the se­cond half of the year.

Full com­mit­ment to ju­di­cial re­form is needed so that the qual­ity, ef­fi­ciency and cred­i­bil­ity of ju­di­cial ser­vices con­tinue to im­prove, Xi said.

All Party com­mit­tees must fo­cus on se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity, he said, adding that their work will help lead ju­di­cial and law en­force­ment de­vel­op­ment.

Xi’s in­struc­tions were read out by Meng Jianzhu, head of the Com­mis­sion for Po­lit­i­cal and Le­gal Af­fairs of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee.

Con­fer­ence par­tic­i­pants stressed that ju­di­cial and law en­force­ment agen­cies should make the best of tech­nol­ogy to en­sure se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity, and they should ad­dress prob­lems at the source.

The agen­cies should strive to raise the cred­i­bil­ity of the ju­di­cial sys­tem, make the pub­lic feel safer and more sat­is­fied, and cre­ate a sound so­cial and le­gal en­vi­ron­ment for the build­ing of an al­laround mod­er­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety, par­tic­i­pants said.
