Lawmaker suggests China keep death penalty


(Xinhua)10:51, March 13, 2012

BEIJING, March 13 (Xinhua) -- It's not time yet for China to scrap the death penaltyand it should remain in place for a long time in the future to deter serious crimes, alawmaker said at the annual parliamentary session.

Fang Zhiyuan, a deputy to the National People's Congress, made the remark during apanel discussion on the work reports of the Supreme People's Court and the SupremePeople's Procuratorate.

Two kinds of crimes -- those endangering people's lives and safety and embezzlementof large sums from public properties -- should be subject to capital punishment,according to Fang, who is also a history professor with the Jiangxi Normal University.

In his opinion, endangering people's lives and safety also includes crimes concerning the production and sale of harmful food and/or drugs to large numbers of people.

"These crimes cause great harm to social harmony and economic development," hesaid. "Showing mercy for criminals convicted of these crimes is irresponsible."

"We don't have to abolish the death penalty simply because some developed countries have done so," said the professor.

He also suggested prison terms be extended for people convicted of embezzling large sums from public properties.

"These convicts should be sentenced to 30, 50 or even 100 years," he said.

The death penalty is needed to help prevent fraud and theft by bankers and party members.
What's on your mind...

As corruption is rampant in China, capital punishment would act as a strong deterrent to the crime, though not necessary be the absolute solution. The fact of the matter is: How the law is been enforced is more crucial than
the legislation itself.   {:soso_e183:}

I learned that it is discussed in the CPC to include offeners who deny climate change.
It is indeed very practical that the party is  judge, legislator, head of the army, executor  and  publisher  all in one in China.

That will do a lot of good for China.

When you find a country that has abolished capital punishment for ALL CRIMES, even those involving brutal murders of innocent victims, you KNOW that the INMATES HAVE TAKEN OVER THE ASYLUM.
