BEIJING, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Procuratorates across China supervised 5,455 cases on false litigations between the start of 2017 and March 2019, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) said at a press conference Wednesday.

There was a dramatic rising trend in the number of such cases, with 652 being handled in the first three months of this year, according to the SPP.

The SPP statistics show that the supervised cases were mainly on disputes over private lending, real estate ownership, as well as on remuneration claims.

The supervision over false litigation cases has taken significant effect with the concerted efforts of procuratorial organizations across China, said Zhang Xueqiao, deputy procurator-general of the SPP.

Factors including weak capabilities and the lack of means of supervision, however, are still limiting public procurators from playing a full role of supervision, so in the future the focus will lie on spotting problems in fake civil lawsuits and solving them, said Zhang.
