Meeting on death penalty review procedure held in Guangxi

On June 2 a meeting on reforming the death penalty review procedure has been held in Nanning, Guangxi province. The Renmin Fayuanbao has issued a terse communique about the meeting's agenda items.

Discussions held by the Central political-legal commission, SPC, SPP and Ministry of Justice have involved the following points:
  • review procedure time limits
  • role of the procuracy and of defence lawyers in reviewing death penalty judgements
  • reform of procedural norms on the death penalty with a two years reprieve
and ten more items on which the press still maintains an absolute silence.
