Emblem of the Office of the People's Prosecutor General of the People's Republic of China
|Formed||27 September 1954|
The Supreme People's Procuratorate also translated as the "Prosecutor General's Office" (Chinese: ?; pinyin: ) is the highest national level agency responsible for both prosecution and investigation in the People's Republic of China. Hong Kong and Macau, as special administrative regions, have their own separate legal systems, based on common law traditions and Portuguese legal traditions respectively, and are out of the jurisdiction of the SPP.
The office of the Procurator or Prosecutor General is influenced by similar institutions (public procurator) in both Japan and Socialist legal systems, and finds equivalence in most civil law systems, which often use an inquisitorial system. Its direct predecessor institution in China is the Procuratorial Office of the Supreme Court of the Republic of China, which in turn is descended from the Procuratorial Office of the Dali Yuan of the late Qing Dynasty.
The current Prosecutor-General of the People's Republic of China is Zhang Jun.
The Supreme People's Procuratorate has a number of committees appointed to assist it with its work in various fields.
This committee was formed on 29 July 2018. It is composed of experts from academia, the legal profession, the judiciary and other areas.
