In the first half of 2022, procuratorates across China have prosecuted 5,738 people for gang-related crimes and 2,537 people for violent felonies such as homicide and robbery, according to a report released on the website of China’s Supreme People’s Procuratorate (SPP) on 14 July 2022.

In response to the pervasive telecom fraud and other Internet crimes, the SPP has published the 2021 report on cracking down and regulating telecom fraud. In the first half of 2022, procuratorates across China have prosecuted 109,000 people for telecom or Internet crimes, a year-on-year increase of 25.1%.

The SPP also attaches great importance to the stability of the capital market. In the first half of 2022, procuratorates across China have prosecuted 14,000 people for financial fraud or undermining the financial management order and 20,000 for money laundering, a rise by 1.6 times compared with last year.
