In criminal procedure, prosecution authorities are placed in all courts according to the Court organization Law to develop the rules of criminal procedure trial level function. The Supreme Prosecutors Office is the prosecution authority placed at the third trial level,which, according to the Criminal Procedure Law, in addition to conduct normal litigation cases, has also the special function to file an extraordinary appeal for a conclusive criminal judgment made contrary to the law.Furthermore, according to Articles 63-1 of the “Court Organization Law”, the Special investigation division of the Supreme Prosecutors Office is in charge of specific material corruption, interference with elections, economic crimes and offenses against social order cases.
According to Article 62 of the Court Organization Law, the Prosecutor General, who is in charge of general affairs of the Office, has the authority to supervise and inspect the prosecutors. To bring the united prosecution function into full play, this Office has in the past few years supervised the prosecutors to conduct major tasks in eliminating corruption, wiping out illegal money transactions and investigating charges of election bribery, and also actively participated in the investigations regarding social security special project, national territory damage and environmental destruction. It is expected that a law-abiding and orderly society would be established soon.
