Prosecutor To Put Job-Related Criminal Record Online
China’ top prosecuting body, the Supreme People's Procuratorate has vowed to improve the online database of people convicted of bribery to better combat corruption. Song Hansong, director of the job-related crime department, said prosecutors will promote the use of the blacklist system at the central level this year and launch a job-related criminal record archive.
It also plans to improve the bribery database to support batch queries and online reservations for inquiries in a bid to make public inquiries more convenient, Song said. Launched in February 2012, the database makes names of those convicted of taking bribes available across the country for public inquiry. Anyone found on the list will likely be disqualified for bidding on government projects and companies may even be forbidden from operating.
