Strictly implement the employment prohibition system and optimize the growth environment for minors - firmly weave and closely knit a legal protection network for minors


Minors are the future of the motherland and the hope of the nation. Not long ago, the Supreme People's Court, together with the Supreme People's Procuratorate and the Ministry of Education, issued the "Opinions on the Implementation of the Employment Prohibition System" (hereinafter referred to as the "Opinions"), stipulating the strict implementation of the employment prohibition system for criminals in accordance with the law, further strengthening the connection between judicial protection, school protection, and social protection, and effectively protecting minors. According to data from the Supreme Law, within two months of the implementation of the Opinion, courts at all levels nationwide have concluded 201 such cases in the first instance, and sentenced 202 defendants to lifelong prohibition from engaging in work that closely contacts minors. According to the Opinions, if teaching and administrative staff commit crimes such as sexual assault, maltreatment, abduction and trafficking, or violent injury, the people's court should, in accordance with the provisions of the Law on the Protection of Minors, rule to prohibit them from engaging in work in close contact with minors. "The significance of employment prohibition lies in preventing injuries against minors as much as possible." Tong Lihua, director of the Beijing Youth Legal Aid and Research Center, introduced that in order to effectively implement the principles that are most beneficial to minors, highlight the special and priority protection for minors, and establish "isolation zones" and "firewalls" for the protection of minors, it is necessary to strictly implement the lifelong employment prohibition system to optimize the surrounding environment for the growth of minors. "Previously, it was more common for courts to use the criminal law to make judgments on employment prohibition." Tong Lihua said that from the perspective of court judgments, the Opinions clearly required all regions to use the relevant provisions of the Juvenile Protection Law to make judgments, further strengthening the authority of the Juvenile Protection Law, more conducive to the implementation of the Juvenile Protection Law, and ensuring the effective implementation of the employment prohibition system. "Zero tolerance" for crimes against minors follows the social bottom line. According to the highest inspection data, over the past five years, 290000 people have been severely prosecuted for crimes against minors such as sexual assault, abuse, and violent injury. In response to the problem of difficult and late discovery of crimes against minors, the Supreme Procuratorate, together with the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Public Security, has established a mandatory reporting system for violations against minors and a recruitment inquiry system for units that have close contact with minors, which has been incorporated into legal provisions. In the past five years, 5358 crimes have been prosecuted through compulsory reporting, and 719 people have been held accountable for not reporting; More than 2003, 000 people were promoted for employment inquiries, 1830 were denied employment, and 6814 personnel with criminal records and bad deeds were dismissed. "In recent years, with the implementation of the newly revised Law on the Protection of Minors and the Law on the Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency, a 'six in one' pattern for the protection of minors has been established in the family, school, society, network, government, and judiciary." Li Jingyi, Deputy Director of the Sixth Procuratorial Department of the Taizhou People's Procuratorate of Zhejiang Province, said that the legal system for the protection of minors has been implemented and the protection of minors has been continuously strengthened. At the same time, with the rapid development of economic society, juvenile delinquency and crimes against minors have also presented new and complex situations. The protection of minors must be kept pace with the times, and the construction of the rule of law must be constantly strengthened. "In the digital era, for example, the online protection of minors is facing new issues and challenges. How to more effectively protect the legitimate rights and interests of minors requires continuous improvement of the rule of law." Tong Lihua said. (Liao Xinshe)
