BEIJING, Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- China imposed punishments on lawyers' misconduct in 248 cases during the first half of 2018, according to the All China Lawyers Association (ACLA).
Most of the cases were filed in economically developed regions, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong, and Jiangsu, the ACLA said.
The association also received 321 cases concerning infringement of lawyers' rights in H1, the ACLA said, noting that 141 of the cases have already been solved.
Problems that impede lawyers' work include cases where they are insulted, defamed, threatened, or injured. There are also cases where lawyers' personal liberty is restricted, such as lawyers being illegally put in custody, the ACLA said.
