Procurators make good use of PILs

Fengxian procurators have used public interest litigations to help residents enjoy a better life, this was revealed at a press conference held by the suburban district’s procuratorate yesterday.

The procurators have focused on problems relating to the biological environment, food safety, public security, preservation of historic structures as well as protection of people’s personal information.

In one typical case they talked about at the press conference, procurators used a smart online system monitor in February to find that a polluted river near a residential complex was badly affecting nearby residents’ life.

After an investigation, they authorized a third-party institution to confirm the degree of pollution in the river and issued prosecutorial suggestions to the local government. Now the quality of the water has improved, meeting all relevant standards, the procurators said.

In another case, procurators probed and shut down a pig slaughterhouse which bred and sold unquarantined pork. The slaughterhouse owners were given administrative penalty.

Also, an old bridge, dating back to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), has been saved and listed as the district’s cultural relic after procurators made suggestions to relevant local departments.
