China's chief justice Wang Shengjun on Friday said that courts in China last year endeavored to solve the evasion of court rulings.

Wang made the remarks in the work report of the Supreme People's Court (SPC) delivered at the annual session of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.

Last October, the SPC put into effect regulations that forbid parties subject to court rulings from spending personal wealth on costly items and services.

The banned expensive items and services include flying in first-class, staying in a star hotel, purchasing real estate, and making tourist trips.

Meanwhile, the SPC last year basically set up a comprehensive mechanism for dealing with those that want to get around court rulings.

It worked with 19 central departments to issue guidelines on establishing and perfecting a coordinated mechanism for the enforcement of court rulings, and also worked to help the establishment of a social credibility system.

Chen Shu, an NPC deputy and lawyer, said that the court had to work with other authorities to solve ruling evasion in a comprehensive manner.

The coordinated mechanism allows the court to gather information of those dodging rulings so that it can press them to fulfill rulings through raising the cost of evasion, Chen said.
