    Press Trust of India | 28-Jan
    19:34 PM Beijing: China on
    Saturday refuted Human
    Rights Watch (HRW)
    criticism over
    deteriorating human
    rights situation in Tibet, amid tense stand off in
    the region over a spate
    of suicides by Buddhist
    monks and anti-regime
    protests. The People's
    Daily, the flagship newspaper of the
    Communist Party of China
    (CPC), denied HRW
    criticism that "police
    dominate criminal justice
    system, which relies disproportionately on
    defendants' confessions." "Weak courts and tight
    limits on the rights of the
    defence mean that forced
    confessions under
    torture remain prevalent
    and miscarriages of justice frequent," HRW
    said. The Daily said HRW
    statement "seriously
    distorted" the truth of
    China's human rights
    conditions as a whole and
    its description of the country's judicial reforms
    is "particularly biased and
    untrue." "It is known that China's
    criminal justice system is
    not dominated by police
    organs, but consists of
    investigation organs led
    by the police organs, people's procuratorates
    and people's courts," said
    the article. The rejoinder came as
    China grappled with
    continuing protests by
    Tibetan in Sichuan
    province. Sixteen monks
    and nuns attempted self immolations in the recent
    months calling for return
    of Dalai Lama. China said two protestors
    were killed early this
    week when
    demonstrators clashed
    with police. The daily said
    under Chinese law, criminal prosecution
    proposals raised by
    police must be reviewed
    by procuratorial
    authorities before a
    decision on whether to bring criminal cases to
    court can be made by the
    latter. China's criminal justice
    system is not dominated
    by police organs, but
    operates based on the
    work of all three parties -
    people's courts, people's procuratorates, and
    police - who play their
    own assigned roles and
    restrain from each other,
    the article said. "The rights and role of
    defence lawyers in the
    handling of criminal cases
    has been strengthened,
    and the phenomenon of
    excessive reliance on defendants' confessions
    is diminishing," it said.

    Dont start with tibetan independence, there will be huge hue n cry over free kashmir, free sikkim, etc etc.... Leave this matter aside. Already discussed to the death.

    the CCp are following a similar trajectory as the Quin dynasty...and will eventually either collapse or mold into a more liberalistic governing body.
