China's legal awareness campaigns reach more minors
Legal awareness campaigns in China covered a larger proportion of minors from January to June 2020, showed statistics released by the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) on Monday.
During the first half of the year, 25,130 lectures were delivered to improve legal awareness among minors, a year-on-year increase of 151.5 percent. More than 20.97 million people attended these lectures, registering a 384.4-percent surge from the same period in 2019, statistics from the SPP showed.
The surge in attendees can be attributed to the wider use of the Internet in campaigns targeting minors amid the COVID-19 epidemic, said Dong Guiwen, an official with the SPP.
