Draft CL amendments - Article 337 - violation of laws on animal or plant quarantine

The wording of article 337 has been slightly changed, to cover violation of legislation on epidemics prevention, besides legislation on quarantine. This amendment was proposed by the Supreme People's Procuratorate, that noticed how in practice violation of both sets of laws takes place.


Article 337

Whoever, in violation of the provisions of the Law on the Entry and Exit Animal and Plant Quarantine, evades animal and plant quarantine and thereby causes a serious animal or plant epidemic shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not more than three years or criminal detention and shall also, or shall only, be fined.

[Draft amendment: whoever, in violation of relevant State legislation on epidemics prevention, quarantine causes a serious animal or plant epidemic or the peril thereof shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not more than three years or criminal detention and shall also, or shall only, be fined

违反有关动植物防疫、检疫的国家规定,引起重大动植物疫情或者有引起重大动植物疫情严重危险的,处三年以下有期徒刑或者拘役,并处或者单处罚金]


Where a unit commits the crime mentioned in the preceding paragraph, it shall be fined, and the persons who are directly in charge and the other persons who are directly responsible for the offence shall be punished in accordance with the provisions of the preceding paragraph
