Harsher punishment on food safety crimes 食品安全犯罪限用缓刑
The Supreme Peoples Court, the Supreme People's Procuratorate, the Ministry of Public Security and the Ministry of Justice jointly released a circular on Wednesday urging a "high voltage" crackdown to take place along with more severe punishments for food safety crimes, Xinhua reported.

Repeat offenders, principals of criminal groups and those resulting in severe harm to people or to large-scale sales should be "strictly" punished in accordance with laws and regulations, the circular instructed. "Those deserving death penalties should be resolutely sentenced to death," it said. "Generally, officials who are involved in food safety crimes should not be given a reprieve or be exempt from criminal punishment." 据新华社报道,最高人民法院、最高人民检察院、公安部、司法部昨天联合发出通知,要求保持打击食品安全犯罪的高压态势,加大惩治力度。《通知》要求,人民法院对危害食品安全犯罪分子的定罪量刑,不仅要考虑犯罪数额、人身伤亡情况,还要充分考虑犯罪分子的主观恶性、犯罪手段、犯罪行为对市场秩序的破坏程度、恶劣影响等。对于危害食品安全犯罪的累犯、惯犯、共同犯罪中的主犯、对人体健康造成严重危害以及销售金额巨大的犯罪分子,要坚决依法严惩。通知强调:“罪当判处死刑的,要坚决依法判处死刑;对于与危害食品安全相关的职务犯罪分子,一般不得适用缓刑或者判处免予刑罚。”
