The number of foreign offenders receiving legal aid has increased since a law was amended last year requiring the government to provide free help to foreign criminals who face life sentences or the death penalty.

 

According to the Ministry of Justice nike air max 97 hvid , legal aid authorities handled more than 800 cases involving foreign criminals last year after the law took effect in January 2013, a 20 percent increase from the year before.

 

"That more foreigners are staying in China and the amended Criminal Procedure Law has enlarged the scope of our legal services to foreign defendants has contributed to the sharp increase in such cases," said Sang Ning, deputy director of the ministry's legal aid center.

 

Most of the cases involved violent crimes, including drug smuggling and trafficking, murder vans slip on hvid , rape, human trafficking and robbery, as well as financial crimes, Sang said. Such cases mainly occurred in border areas, such as Yunnan province and the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, and some developed coastal areas vans slip on tilbud , including Zhejiang, Guangdong and Fujian provinces.

 

Offenders were mostly from Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and some European countries.

 

Under the amended law, authorities also provide free legal service to foreigners sentenced to life imprisonment, rather than only those who could receive the death sentence.

 

The number of foreigners staying in China for more than six months hit about 680 vans toy story danmark ,000, according to the ministry, including those who have obtained Chinese "green cards".

 

Foreigners involved in civil cases can also receive free legal service if they are short of funds or their country has signed a judicial agreement with China.

 

The ministry said it has established a database of 20,000 qualified volunteer lawyers who can provide free legal aid to foreign clients. About one-third of them can communicate in English.

 

Sang said the ministry will emphasize having more free legal assistance in border areas such as Yunnan and the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, where a large number of foreigners are involved in cross-border crimes, including drug smuggling and trafficking or human trafficking.

 

"The key is to increase government financial support to legal aid and take effective measures to improve the quality of service vans sk8 hi hvid ," said Li Wei, a lawyer from the Beijing Lawyers Association.

 

WELLINGTON, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- Falling commodity prices are slowing New Zealand's economic growth, although the economy is still expanding "at a robust pace," the Treasury said in its Pre- election Economic and Fiscal Update on Tuesday.

 

Dairy and forestry prices had fallen sooner than forecast, exposing "an area of downside risk for the forecasts vans sk8 hi sort ," said the document issued in advance of the general election set for Sept. 20.

 

"As a result, the forecast decline in the goods terms of trade is occurring sooner than previously expected and consequently will provide less support to growth," it said.

 

However, the government was still on track for an operating surplus this fiscal year, Finance Minister Bill English said in a statement.

 

"The forecast Budget surplus for this year is still modest at 297 million NZ dollars (250.53 million U.S. dollars) and the forecast surpluses in subsequent years are not," said English.

 

"Some of the drivers of growth are expected to be a little stronger than forecast in the Budget vans old skool dame , while others have weakened a little."

 

The Treasury forecasts also showed core government expenses forecast to fall to 30.3 percent of GDP by 2015, down from 35 percent of GDP in 2011.

 

Annual average GDP growth for the year to March was 3.3 percent and growth for the year to March 2015 was forecast to be 3.8 percent.

 

However, critics said the Treasury figures showed declining GDP growth up to 2018, indicating an over-reliance on raw commodities such as milk and logs.

 

"We are seeing forecast economic growth rates that peak in March next year and rapidly decline to the mediocre around 2.1 percent and well below growth rates in the 2000s before the crisis. The current account deficit blows back out to over 6 percent of GDP within two years. Productivity growth is forecast to be mediocre and falling," Council of Trade Unions economist Bill Rosenberg said in a statement.

 

"The forecasts show real wages falling behind productivity growth over the next four years, meaning wage and salary earners will not be getting their share of what the economy can afford. Unemployment is forecast to still be above 5 percent in 2016 vans old skool sort dame , with 132,000 unemployed. The best it gets is 4.5 percent (117,000 people), despite New Zealand doing much better during the 2000s."

 

LONDON, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- UEFA Euro 2020 will be an occasion for football to come home again, as London was awarded the final and semifinals of the championship in six years' time vans old skool sort , according to Friday's announcement in Geneva.
