The Supreme People's Court held a panel meeting with the State Administration of Cultural Heritage on April 17.

China's head of the Supreme People's Court (SPC) Zhou Qiang vowed to beef up the legal shield for cultural relics on Tuesday, as he said China will enhance the international judicial cooperation in the field and vigorously recover stolen cultural relics from overseas.

During a panel meeting along with the State Administration of Cultural Heritage (SACH), the two sides signed an agreement to beef up the protection for cultural relics earlier that day.

Liu Yuzhu, head of SACH, suggests judicial cooperation for protecting cultural relics should be carried out by improving the current situation, expanding judicial cultural relic resources, and managing risks.
