Supreme court vows to enforce judgments

BEIJING -- The Supreme People's Court (SPC) pledged to strengthen the enforcement of court orders, at a national video-conference on May 29.

Courts across the country should adeptly apply information technology to tackle difficulties enforcing judgments, the SPC said.

China set up a nationwide database to help enforce court orders in 2014. The database is connected to banks and other agencies to monitor the properties of those subject to the enforcement of court orders, including deposits in bank accounts and online accounts, real estate, vehicles and stocks.

On the basis of a blacklist of dishonest people subject to enforcement, courts can impose penalty restrictions on defaulters in areas such as traveling, house purchasing and investment.

Meanwhile, the SPC required courts to enforce in a procedure-based, impartial and non-abusive way, and strengthen oversight over the exercise of power.
