Karamay Juvenile Crime Files to be Sealed
On June 5, 2014, the trial committee of Karamay District People 's Court issued a regulation to seal juvenile crime records. Karamay District People 's Court is the first legal institution in Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region to adopt this system. Before the latest Code of Criminal Procedure, there was no specified regulation on storing or borrowing juvenile crime files, and any basic unit or individuals related to the case could apply to read the file. From now on, Karamay District People 's Court will seal all files involving crimes committed by minors and sealed files can only be read by legal institutions and units that get official permission.
