BEIJING, Sept. 17 (Xinhua) -- The Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) has issued a document seeking measures to further strengthen the monitoring and supervision of the procuratorial agencies' work in handling criminal cases.
The SPP said in a statement Thursday that the document listed the key areas for supervision with detailed stipulations covering the procuratorates' work of case investigation, arrest approval and prosecution procedures.
