According to the drafts, judges should adjudicate based on facts and the law, guided by objectivity and impartiality. Procurators should do the same.

Procurators must strictly ensure that crimes are punished only under the law, and protect human rights. They must prosecute criminals while protecting the innocent from criminal prosecution, the draft revisions to the Procurators Law says.

The two drafts are under their third readings at the ongoing session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress.
