Vice-Minister of Justice urges implementation of legal aid document


Zhao Dacheng, vice-minister of justice, said the judicial administrative departments should study and implement Opinions on Improving the Legal Aid System, a document issued on June 24 by the General Office of the CPC Central Committee and the General Office of the State Council.
