In October 2020, a new round of special clean-ups was carried out in conjunction with the Ministry of Public Security. As of August this year Then 6,951 cases were found out, and 6,290 cases have been cleared." Zhang Jun said.

  In addition, the report also pointed out that the procuratorial organs have strengthened their precise supervision of civil administrative appeals.

In response to the continuous increase in civil administrative appeal cases, the implementation of measures such as the diversion of complicated and simplified cases has improved the efficiency of handling cases and cleared backlog cases in a comprehensive manner.

From January 2018 to August 2021, the prosecution filed a total of 17,297 civil and administrative protests to the court, and the court closed 12,104 cases in the same period. Among them, 9,520 cases were revised, remanded for retrial, mediation, and settlement withdrawn. The change rate of protests was 78.7%.

  Facing the next step, the report clarified that it will deepen the implementation of the "responding to each case" system for public letters and visits, further promote the closure of cases, continue to promote informatization, and provide stronger support for handling complaints and appeals.
