Sichuan people's congress and the PRC prison law

An interesting piece of news released today mentions that delegates to the Sichuan people's congress are drafting a proposal to amend the PRC Prison Law (中华人民共和国监狱法/全文).

On October 10 three groups of delegates to the people's congress began an inspection tour of provincial detention facilities, touring prisons in Chengdu, Zixian, Yibin, Ziyang, Nantong and Dazhou. They found out that "concrete difficulties and problems that need to be solved" (一些具体困难和急需解决的问题) still exist in Sichuan prison system.

Details about the content of the proposal are not yet public.
