38,754 probed for rights violations

CHINESE prosecutors have investigated 38,754 government and judicial workers for malfeasance and infringement on people's rights from 2005 to June this year, top procurator Cao Jianming told the country's top legislature yesterday in Beijing.

They included five officials at the province or ministry level and 47 at the prefectural level, said Cao, prosecutor-general of the Supreme People's Procuratorate.

He made the remarks in a report delivered at the bimonthly session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress.

Prosecutors at all levels handled 23,308 people involved in such cases and retrieved economic losses of 19.74 billion yuan (US$2.89 billion), he said.

Prosecutors had strengthened supervision on cases involving government or judicial personnel who took advantage of their positions to infringe upon people's rights or offered a "protective umbrella" to mafia-like groups, Cao said.
