China needs to consider ways to reform the judiciary's adjudication committee system, said Wan Exiang, vice-president of the Supreme People's Court, reported Ta Kung Pao newspaper in Hong Kong. "It has become more and more obvious that the system is no longer what it was meant to be," Wan said at a law conference at Tsinghua University. He faulted the adjudication system because it only involved reading documents. "This system means the committees can be easily misled by [those] who compile the documents. . . and is a very dangerous situation," he said.
