Four procuratorates along the Shanghai-Suzhou-Nantong route have agreed to develop cross-regional cooperation and build a “railway protection alliance.”

The Shanghai Railway Transport, Taicang People’s, Changshu People’s  and Zhangjiagang People’s procuratorates will share information and cooperate on criminal, civil and administrative cases along the railway line, as well as public interest litigation.

They will also focus on areas such as illegal construction, ecological environment, food and drug safety and juvenile protection, and coordinate with local governments on social governance functions.

With the launch of the railway on July 1, Shanghai now has more convenient and faster connections with the cities of Taicang, Changshu and Zhangjiagang in Jiangsu Province.

In recent years, with the development of the regional economy and the rail network, there has been a rise in new types of crimes such as cross-regional telecom fraud and Internet scams that are increasingly difficult to combat.
