China submits revisions and bills to popular consultation
Beijing, Oct 22 (Prensa Latina) China on Thursday submitted to popular consultation several revisions to regulations and bills approved in the last sessions of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC).
Thus, Chinese authorities seek to obtain the citizens' opinion on draft revision on the National Defense, Administrative Penalties, Wildlife Protection Laws and amendments to the laws on personal information and the protection of minors.
With this plan, Chinese citizens could express their criteria, for example, on the draft of the Personal Data Protection Law that establishes a series of regulations on the handling of private information and the obligation of state bodies to protect them.
They could also comment on the revision of the Law on the Protection of Minors, which includes changes to strengthen the care of children and young people not only in traditional fields, but also in the new context of the internet and social media.
Other projects that arouse interest are the modification of the Criminal Law, which includes a proposal to lower the minimum age to prosecute someone for serious crimes to 12 years, facing a boom in juvenile delinquency.
The bills and revisions are posted on the NPC website and those interested can express their opinions there or can send letters to the Legislative Affairs Commission of the NPC Standing Committee until November 19.
