Surge in applicatio­ns for online mediation


Nearly 5.2 million disputes were resolved on China’s online mediation platform last year, with a success rate of 65 percent, saving more people the bother of going to court, the Supreme People’s Court said. Mediation applicatio­ns have surged since the service was launched in early 2018, the top court said. The country’s 3,502 courts have all opened mediation services on the platform, and 32,937 mediation organizati­ons have moved in, bringing the number of online mediators to 165,333, senior court official Qian Xiaochen said.
