BEIJING - China's Procurator-General Cao Jianming has called on prosecutors to boost judicial protection for the rights and interests of servicemen and their families, according to a statement released by the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) on Saturday.

Cao made the remarks at a symposium with National People's Congress (NPC) deputies from the People's Liberation Army (PLA).

Cao said as national defense and military reform deepen, procuratorate agencies need to effectively handle cases involving the military to ensure justice, and they should apply "green pass" policies to such cases under streamlined procedures.

Cao also called on procuratorate agencies at all levels to deepen their cooperation with military procuratorates through policy guidance and strengthening consultation.

The SPP recently invited 14 NPC deputies from the PLA to visit, according to the statement.
