Chinese judicial bodies said they will continue to implement the principle of not making judgments in cases without strong evidence, a move to protect human rights and avoid wrongful verdicts.

Little awareness of human rights protection, and illegal maneuvering to tackle cases, have been the main reasons for wrongful verdicts over the past few years, Sun Qian, deputy chief procurator of China's top procuratorate, said while discussing judicial reform on Monday.

The wrongful verdicts exposed in recent years hurt justice and seriously damaged the human rights of litigants, as well as harmed their families, "which is why we are making efforts to fight wrongful judgments and help those who were wrongly punished," said Sun.
