Jing Hanchao, vice president of China's Supreme People's Court (SPC) said that all of its open trials would be broadcast live on the Internet from July 1.
Jing said the live webcasts will be significant progress for judicial openness. With full transparency of trials online, the public can better play their supervisory role.
Live broadcasts will also drive judges to strengthen their capabilities, thus improving the judicial system, Jing added.
Furthermore, Jing said live webcasts will create a large amount of data that will help jurists study China's legal system.
