The National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee on Thursday held a special inquiry on two work reports submitted by the Supreme People's Court (SPC) and the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) respectively.

It was the first NPC Standing Committee inquiry on judicial works held during a bi-monthly session. Li Zhanshu, chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, attended the inquiry and deliberation.

The two reports were on the courts' efforts in tackling the difficulties in enforcing judgments, and procuratorates' supervision of civil lawsuits and judgment enforcement, respectively.

During the inquiry, lawmakers posed questions on how to force defaulters to pay debts as required in a court judgment, how to deal with unenforceable judgments, and how to curb the emergence of rising false litigation cases.

Chief Justice Zhou Qiang, Procurator-General Zhang Jun and officials from the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Justice and the Finance Ministry answered lawmakers' inquiries.

Li said the inquiry is an innovative exploration of the NPC supervision over judicial works, which reflects the constitutional principle that all power belongs to the people.

The move is also designed to support the judicial reform and boost the judicial system's credibility, according to Li.

Li also called on the SPC and the SPP to sum up experience, enhance their coordination with other agencies and push for the settlement of the judgment enforcement issue.
