外文标题：China's ruling party pushes for better judiciary
BEIJING: China's ruling Communist Party says it will take steps to improve judicial independence and put checks on political interference in the courts, as its central committee concludes its annual meeting.
A communique, released Thursday after the conclave ended in Beijing, pledges support for ruling the country in accordance with the Constitution and the law.
The document provides a guiding policy framework for the party-led government in the upcoming year, which will draw up detailed measures to execute the orders.
The central committee says major policies should be subject to legal review, files should be kept to record any involvement by party officials in legal matters, courts should be removed from the jurisdiction of local officials to boost independence and judges should be chosen from legal professionals.

Now what human in their right mind would believe that?

And then again, why would you discount it out of hand? I have to say the the judicary in China is an organ of government control, not of the protection of peoples rights under the law, but if they are moving towards a more independant judiciary, that is a good thing.
China has no judiciary of whatever kind.... it has the worst human rights records after india
Morgan (Australia) replies to Shekhar
Hmmmm... you seem to miss out about a half dozen little African states, North Korea and a few middle Asian ones.
Good for Chinese...

THEY CAN DO ANYTHING...
Isn't it ironical that autocratic China was ranked much higher than democratic India on World Justice Project's "Rule of Law Index - 2014"???

Indian judiciary is independent but not accountable. It is a system for the lawyers, of the lawyers and by the lawyers. No accountability about time bound disposal. Yet they are brazen and pontificate about other's delays. The litigants have no rights; yet high judiciary talks of human rights. Judges must be recruited through all India competitive exam. Advocacy and judgeship must be separated to improve probity and performance of judicial system
