Top court seeks judicial transparency, paper says

The Supreme People’s Court will publish its annual work report in English to give the world a better understanding of China’s judicial system and reduce misunderstandings, China Daily reported Thursday, citing a senior court official. The report has three sections: law enforcement and case adjudication, innovation inmanagement, and reform and development, Hu Yunteng, director of the top court’s research department, said. Despite the nation’s efforts to enhance its judicial system, many foreigners know little about it because of the language barrier, Hu was quoted as saying, adding that they only get to read mostly negative reports from the foreign media.
