Chinese Courts Hear 28,000 State Compensation Cases Since 2013


The Supreme People’s Court (SPC) said on November 13 courts nationwide heard over 28,000 state compensation cases from 2013 to October 2018, as the country makes more efforts to protect the legitimate rights of those who have been wronged. Among them were the overturned cases of Huugjilt and Nie Shubin, both executed for rape and murder based on wrongful convictions. The two were acquitted in 2014 and 2016 respectively. The SPC also released details of five exemplifying state compensation cases, further clarifying the applicable conditions when people should receive state compensation. Details of five exemplifying cases concerning judicial aid were also released. Zhu Erjun, a senior SPC official, expressed his hope that the publication of such cases can strengthen the protection of human rights, curb the infringement on people’s rights and interests, and spur the government to properly perform its duties. State compensation is granted to victims who have been wronged, or whose rights were infringed upon during legal proceedings.

It is lucky for Chen Jun to began his career in the IP industry 14 years ago when the first group of IP managers for businesses appeared on the stage in China and he has been in the industry.

It was this “Whampoa Military Academy” for IP that educated China’s first batch of corporate IP management personnel. Many of these engineers left Foxconn in the years since.
