The decisions document says that efforts will be made to improve the laws for the punishment and rehabilitation of offenders. And it also says that the community correction system will be optimized.It is not that the reeducation-through-labor system is too bad to be tolerated. Instead, it is because the rule of law requires the delivery of justice through proper procedure.An inmate sobs after he meets his mother at alaojiaodetention house in Taiyuan, Shanxi province, in May. The Third Plenum of the 18th CPC Central Committee announced on Friday thelaojiaosystem would end.[DENG YINMING / FOR CHINA DAILY]There is no denying that the system of reeducation through labor has played its role in the punishment and rehabilitation of those who have committed offences that were not serious enough to warrant a prison term. And there is always the need for a correctional system for the punishment and rehabilitation of people whose offences are not serious enough to be incarcerated.However, the lack of a national-level law to regulate the system made it vulnerable to abuses at the local level, which on occasion led to the violation of peoples rights and thus invited criticism of both its purpose and implementation.The need to regulate the system with a national law, so that the proper legal procedure is followed to prevent abuses, has become both evident and urgent.But the abolition of the reeducation-through-labor system is just the beginning, as much needs to be done before a law can be made for the establishment of a new correctional system.In the new system, specific stipulations must be made to clarify what kind of offences should be subject to correctional measures and strict legal procedures must be put in place to prevent the system from being used by some power abusers to crack down on opponents.Behind the abolition of the system is the will of the top authorities to gradually place within legal limits the power of local leaders. The real rule of law will never be attained unless power is locked into the cage of laws.Yet, power will not willingly stay in the cage of laws. There can be no denying the possibility of some power abusers taking advantage of any loopholes in the new system.Even so, the abolition of this administrative penalty will greatly narrow the room for power abuse in this respect.(China Daily 11/18/2013 page8)8.03KRelated StoriesPlenum: Not a paper tigerProperty prices to stabilize post-plenum: brokerExperts explain Third PlenumWhat to take from the Plenum?Investors edgy waiting for plenums new detailsWhat to take from the Plenum?Most ViewedTodays Top NewsGuarantee for developmentBetter correctional systemOfficial residence systemUS spying activities are out of controlClimate madness must be stoppedBlueprint allays concerns about safety of assetsAssume role of service providerColumnistsNo fear of the finish when runningRebalancing puts brake on better relationsmoreCartoonSerious negotiation?Economic recovery Climate changeOnline shoppingSpecialStar bloggers on China DailyGlobal view on Chinas sessionsMichaelMStay positive all of the timeliu5222512The thinking of English training Ⅲliu5222512Stronger than all is maternal love……| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer |Copyright 1995 -.
