China top prosecutor orders updates on graft cases

Top mainland prosecutors are demanding that the public be updated on graft cases involving senior officials in a timely way, Reuters reported Thursday, citing Xinhua news agency.

“The public will be informed in a timely manner of cases such as suspected duty-related violations by provincial-level officials and those behind serious accidents or major food and drug safety scandals,” Xinhua quoted a Supreme People’s Procuratorate order as saying.

“Information to be published should include the suspects’ identities, the crimes they are suspected of, basic facts and latest developments in cases during investigation, arrest and prosecution.”

But Xinhua also said that information about “state secrets or personal privacy” will not be released.
