|Supreme People's Court front gate, Beijing|
In the last full week of the year, China;s Supreme People's Court called on the masses to “believe in law, not petitioning” (信法不信访). To that end, the Court leadership publicized on Wechat (and through the press) two initiatives:
Focusing on enforcement of 10 types of disputes affecting the livelihood of ordinary people (涉民生案件) that it identifies as most likely to cause social disturbances;
Its views on the draft Administrative Litigation Law (行政诉讼法), shortly before the National People’s Congress issued its draft for public consultation.
In a five month initiative launched by telephone conference (a form of communication often used by the Communist Party), the Court is focusing on the enforcement of judgments in the following areas:
unpaid wages（particularly owed to migrant workers);
- support payments (to the elderly);
- child support;
- compensation payments (to the disabled or families of the deceased)
- medical malpractice compensation;
- traffic accident compensation; and
- industrial accidents.
