Prosecutors charged 61,188 suspects involved in organized crime in local mafia gangs last year as the country initiated a special crackdown against such crimes to better safeguard social stability, a report showed on Tuesday.

Around 350 people were charged for serving as "protection umbrella" for such criminals, according to the annual work report of the Supreme People's Procuratorate.

The report was submitted at the ongoing session of the National People's Congress, the top legislature.

While handling such cases, prosecutors maintained the principle of "no one is let off, no one is wronged", and struck down 9,154 cases filed by police as gang-related crimes, the report said.

On the other side, prosecutors charged 2,117 gang-related crimes which were not classified as serious offense by police, according to the report.
