Senior Chinese official Zhou Yongkang Friday called for improving publicity work in the judicial sector.

Zhou, secretary of the Political and Legal Affairs Commission of the Communist Party of China Central Committee (CPC) , made the remarks during his visit to the Beijing-based Legal Daily, the official newspaper of the commission, where he chatted online with netizens and answered questions.

Zhou highly praised Chinese netizens for their complaints and suggestions, which are key to the nation's judicial work.

Founded on Aug. 1, 1980, Legal Daily is known for its outstanding judicial news reporting in China and abroad.

Zhou, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, hosted a seminar on the improvement of publicity work in the judicial sector, which was joined by representatives from mainstream media such as the People's Daily newspaper, Xinhuanet.com, website of Xinhua News Agency, and China Central Television.

"The mainstream media has contributed a lot to the legal career development of the country. Many dedicated reporters have been working with the police in fighting against crimes and protecting peoples' lives," Zhou said.

As democracy and legal systems develop further in China, the expectation of Chinese citizens on the fulfillment of their rights to know, to participate, to express and supervise will become much higher, Zhou said.

Therefore, the nation's judicial agencies at all level, together with the media, should work with more concern on the people's basic rights, the stability of society, and the dignity of law, Zhou said.

In particular, the media should report news stories that are close to people's lives, and judicial agencies should focus on those problems exposed by the media and set up regular news release systems for the timely dissemination of news to the public.
