A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has called for more efforts to reform China's judicial system in order to build a harmonious society.
Luo Gan, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau and secretary of the CPC Central Committee for Political and Legislative Affairs, made the remarks at a meeting on judicial system reform on Tuesday.
Luo said the sixth plenary session of the 16th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) had called for a fair, efficient and authoritative judicial system.
He called for a stronger sense of responsibility and closer cooperation in carrying out the reform.
He said that the judicial system should depend on the people and serve the people. Reforms should be made after listening to suggestions from the people and related departments to ensure a more democratic and scientific process, Luo said.
