China moves to increase independence of judiciary

PUBLISHED December 2, 2013

A proposal for judicial independence from the state features in a groundbreaking plan for reform published last month by the Chinese government. The plan, to 'separate the jurisdiction of courts from administrative divisions', appears to be aimed at reducing corruption and improving the climate for foreign investment.

The plan also contains a pledge to abolish the punishment of 're-education through labour'.
