Na­tion pro­motes rule of law for hu­man rights

China Daily European Weekly - - NEWS DIGEST -

A white pa­per re­leased on Dec 12 by the State Coun­cil In­for­ma­tion Of­fice noted progress made by China in the pro­tec­tion of hu­man rights since re­form and open­ing-up be­gan in 1978. The white pa­per said China has been striv­ing to build a so­cial­ist coun­try un­der the rule of law. Ti­tled: “Progress in Hu­man Rights over the 40 Years of Re­form and Open­ing-Up in China”, it said the coun­try has en­deav­ored to en­sure “that a well­con­ceived ap­proach is taken to leg­is­la­tion, that law is strictly en­forced, that jus­tice is im­par­tially ad­min­is­tered and that the law is ob­served by every­one”. “China has es­tab­lished a le­gal frame­work to pro­tect hu­man rights,” it said, adding that the le­gal norms guar­an­tee­ing civil and po­lit­i­cal rights — as well as eco­nomic, so­cial and cul­tural rights — have been im­proved.
