Chinese President and General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Hu Jintao has urged public security departments to set up a long-term, efficient mechanism for dealing with citizen complaints, so as to safeguard the legal rights and interests of the people.
In the meantime, Hu gave a full affirmation of the remarkable achievements the public security departments had scored in receiving and handling citizen complaints nationwide.
Other leaders including Wu Bangguo, Wen Jiabao, Zeng Qinghong and Luo Gan have also given similar instructions.
Recently, the Ministry of Public Security held a national teleconference on the study and implementation of the important instructions by these Party and state leaders. At the meeting, Minister Zhou Yongkang urged public security departments at all levels to carry out the instructions and further improve the quality of the entire police force.
Public security departments should make substantial efforts to play their role of safeguarding social stability, in full, to make a new contribution to building an overall prosperous, harmonious socialist society, said Zhou, who is member of both the Political Bureau and the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee.
