China’s ‘long-term’ corruption fight

By Richard Halloran

A senior official, Jiang Wei (姜維), told the Chinese press: “The problems can only be solved by the Chinese way and wisdom. Copying foreign experience or systems might lead to a bad end.” This came in response to a question regarding whether China’s judicial system should follow Western models.

He said that China was keen to learn from the experience of other countries and would incorporate judicial concepts and practices utilized elsewhere. However, he concluded that the white paper urged a continuous effort to establish a “just, effective and authoritative socialist judicial system with Chinese characteristics.”
