Chinese procuratorates have tightened supervision on false litigation, which refers to baseless lawsuits without merit.
Procuratorates nationwide have presented protests or suggestions against 5,178 cases involving false litigation to courts, amid a national campaign launched in 2015, according to a work report delivered by Procurator-General Zhang Jun at the ongoing session of the National People's Congress Standing Committee.
A total of 799 people have been prosecuted on the charge of filing false lawsuits in the last five years, according to the report.
In September, the Supreme People's Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorate formulated a judicial interpretation defining and giving examples of false litigation, such as if a person aids a person in a marriage to falsify family debts for a lawsuit filing.
The campaign comes against the backdrop of a rise in false litigation, with more civil cases being accepted by courts since the adoption of a case-filing registration system.
