China's top legislature on Friday adopted revisions to the organic laws of the people's courts and the people's procuratorates.

The revisions, submitted during the bi-monthly session of the National People's Congress Standing Committee, constituted part of the follow-up measures to conform to China's judicial reform.

For instance, the two revised laws formally codify the adoption of a quota system for judges and procurators and the principle of judicial accountability, which subject judges and procurators to life-long accountability for cases they handle during their service.

The revised laws stipulate that people's right to know, participate and supervise the work of courts and procuratorates shall be guaranteed.

Revisions also include provisions to accommodate changes in judicial organs' jurisdiction. China in March inaugurated the National Supervisory Commission, which is mandated to take over some functions previously exercised by the Supreme People's Procuratorate.

Both of the two revised laws will take effect on Jan. 1 next year.
