SPP Releases Ten Typical Cases of Supervising Administrative Proceedings in 2021

On 24 Jan. 2022, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate (SPP) released ten typical cases of administrative prosecution in 2021 on their official website.

In our earlier article “Don’t Forget the People’s Procuratorate When Resorting to China’s Judicial System”, we introduced the powers of the Procuratorate. Among others, supervising administrative proceedings is one of the procuratorates’ major powers.

That is, in the administrative proceedings where citizens, enterprises, and organizations sue the government, if the prosecutor finds that the effective judgment rendered by the court is incorrect, he can also lodge a protest and suggestion with the court just as his supervision in the civil litigation. Therefore, if you sue a local government of China in court and think that the court has not dealt fairly with the dispute between you and the government, you may consider resorting to the prosecutor.

The top ten cases released by the SPP all belong to the aforementioned type.

Specifically, the ten cases include supervising government information disclosure, administrative registration, work injury determination, administrative penalty,  administrative reconsideration, administrative compulsion, etc.

From these cases, one can learn how Chinese procuratorates supervise the government.
