By Zhang Yan | China Daily | Updated:2017-04-27 07:02Joint platform created to resolve problems in a timely mannerChinese authorities will establish mechanisms to respond quickly to cases that harm attorneys professional rights, the Ministry of Justice said on Wednesday.The All China Lawyers Association and 10 government authorities, including judicial organs and the ministries of foreign affairs, finance and commerce, have set up a joint conference to communicate and deal with such cases.Meanwhile, all provinces and regions will set up a similar mechanism before the end of June, Liu Fuchen, spokesman for the Ministry of Justice, said at a news conference on Wednesday.”We will use the platform to communicate with each other, conduct research and resolve some policy issues, as well as to coordinate on major cases and emergencies in a timely manner that infringe upon lawyers defense rights,” he said.In recent years, a growing number of violations of lawyers legal rights have occurred, attracting a lot of public attention, according to the ministry.Xiong Xuanguo, vice-minister of justice, said lawyers face difficulties meeting with suspects in criminal detention, especially when their cases involve endangering State safety or terrorist attacks, or in cases of major corruption.In addition, some judicial authorities limit the ability of lawyers to review case files, and stop them from collecting evidence. They interrupt defense statements during court hearings, remove them from the courtroom or even illegally detain them, he said.In April, the All China Lawyers Association, which works under the ministry, issued a regulation to better protect the legal rights of lawyers and strictly govern their behavior to ensure the healthy development of the profession.The new rules clearly state that lawyers can report any violation of their legal rights – including the right to meet clients, collect evidence, read files, make appeals or file complaints to local association branches, judicial administration departments or a higher prosecuting department – and that these reports must be accepted and responded to quickly.In addition, two centers have been set up at lawyers associations nationwide – one for the protection of lawyers legal rights and the other to deal with complaints and reports against lawyers.According to Wang Junfeng, president of the All China Lawyers Association, local branches of the association will compile lawyers complaints and report them once a month, which will make them public.Xiong said the ministry will complete a thorough review of cases that harmed lawyers rights before the end of June to ensure their reports are dealt with.Ministry data show that, as of the end of 2016, China had more than 26,000 law firms and around 328,000 lawyers. They handled 3.54 million civil cases and 840,000 criminal cases last year.Related StoriesSenior court official calls for more judicial fairnessReport highlights Chinas judicial progressJudicial efficiency improved through reform: top courtWhite paper: Judicial Transparency of Chinese CourtsChina issues white paper on judicial reform of Chinese courtsPhotoMeet the unknowns behind the bike-sharing businessBeijing unveils design of speed skating venue for OlympicsFlower decorations greet upcoming Labor Day in BeijingFirst test track paved by Chinese companyChina begins deep-sea probe in South China SeaNuclear submarine opens its doors to public in QingdaoLatestMeet the unknowns behind the bike-sharing businessShanghai Tower offers airy city viewsHigh-speed trains plan to improve meal choicesCopyright violations trouble collegesDevelopment of Xiongan kicks offState Council NewsChina to spur market vitality via integration of certificatesState Council promotes medical treatment partnershipsExclusiveInfographic: ABCs of Chinas first homemade aircraft carrierNew look, new functions, new attractionsTianzhou-1 spacecraft: Nuts and boltsEditors picksHigh-speed trains plan to improve meal choicesFirst Chinese-made carrier launchedTen photos you dont wanna missTen photos from across China: April 14-20SpecialEducation: Views of deputies, membersNPC deputies from grassrootsBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
