China's Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) on Tuesday unveiled measures to ensure better judicial protection of minors.

As part of a five-year reform plan, the SPP will standardize an integrated working mechanism encompassing the arrest, prosecution, investigation and prevention of juvenile crime.

The SPP plans to explore criteria for dealing with juvenile delinquents according to the severity of the crime rather than age.

Education for juvenile delinquents should be enhanced to prevent recidivism, according to an SPP statement.

Education for minors accused of misconduct and those who are on the brink of crime will be strengthened as well, while family education will also be developed.

For juvenile victims, the SPP is going to promote a "one-stop" inquiry and legal aid mechanism.

In addition, an information database for criminals committing sexual assault against minors and a system for inquiry upon their employment will also be established.

Amid China's latest efforts to better protect minors, a department specializing in juvenile cases was set up by the SPP.
