China's Ministry of Public Security is soliciting public opinion on a draft regulation on national compensation procedures, which requires organs with compensatory obligations to make a decision within two months.
The draft orders the legal office of organs with compensatory obligations to conduct an overall investigation within five days of receiving compensation applications.
The organization should examine the facts, evidence, and reasons for the application, said the draft.
Applicants can change the compensation claim during the investigation. If the organization finds the claim to be incomplete or inaccurate, it should inform the applicant to update the claim before the investigation expires, the draft said.
After ascertaining the facts, if compensation is due, the organ should fully listen to the applicant's opinion and consult with the applicant on the methods, items, and amount of the compensation within legal limits.
The draft was published on the website www.chinalaw.gov.cn to collect opinions until Aug 10.
