SPP issues norms on prosecutors’ work ethics

Today the Experimental Norms of the PRC on prosecutors’ work ethics, issued by the Supreme People’s Procuracy on 3 September, have been made public.

The experimental norms are divided in six chapters, four of which are titled after the values that should inspire prosecutors’ work: loyalty 忠诚, fairness 公正, honesty 清廉 and decorum 文明.

Their provisions reiterate existing rules, principles, duties and prohibitions but those who are interested can consult the full text of the experimental norms here, or read very short comment articles in English or Chinese.
