On September 19, People’s Procuratorate of Zhejiang issued 18 guidelines on their procuratorial performance to construct beautiful Zhejiang (Guidelines for short), in which inspection bodies in Zhejiang are required to perform their duties, employ legal means to protect the environment, so as to build a beautiful Zhejiang.

According to Guidelines, criminal offense of damaging the environment will be punished severely. The authorities will crack down harshly any misdeed and perform their arrest and prosecution functions, and deal with criminal cases such as environment pollution, ecology damage and any other acts that hinder river treatment, illegal structures dismantling and the “811” plan to build a beautiful Zhejiang, in a bid to fulfill Zhejiang provincial Party committee’s central task. These acts play a role of strong deterrents to criminals. For those serious cases followed closely by both the central government and the public, it is advised in Guidelines that we can set a time limit through publicity and intervene in advance. For those cases which bring damage to collective property, criminals will be sued by civil suit collateral to criminal proceedings.
