The Supreme People's Court has amended the Rules of Court to better protect the rights of all parties involved in trials.

Under the revised rules, which take effect on May 1, suspects on trial are no longer required to wear prison uniforms, vests or clothes that carry logos of prisons or detention houses.

The changes are part of the country's reform of the judicial system, said Hu Shihao, director of the reform office of the Supreme People's Court.
