NANCHANG, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- China's Chief Justice Tuesday called for innovation in the management of the country's trial process and enhanced supervision to ensure justice and a clean judicial system.
Wang Shengjun, president of the Supreme People's Court (SPC), made the remarks during a seminar for judges in Jinggangshan in east China's Jiangxi Province.
The SPC will promote the establishment of an appraisal system for the quality of trials to be applicable across the nation, Wang said.
"The system shall make for comprehensive, objective and fair judgement in trials and law enforcement and improve the quality of judgements," he said.
Wang also urged the use of a scientific case assignment mechanism through the random assignment of cases to prevent personal relations and bribery in the handling of cases.
Wang also asked courts to enhance scrutiny of delayed trials.
"Delaying trial cases randomly not only violates the rules of the trial process, but also harms the credibility of the judicial system," Wang said.
"We should set up a dynamic monitoring system on the time limits of trials and use information technology to provide early warning in cases that are approaching their time limit," he said.
