CHANGSHA -- A senior Communist Party of China official has called for more efforts to fight criminal gangs and improve the work of political and legal organs at the primary level.
Guo Shengkun, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and head of the Commission for the Political and Legal Affairs of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks during a two-day inspection in central China's Hunan Province, which concluded Sunday.
Guo called for thorough research on the new trends of gang crime, noting that the crackdown should target criminal activities both online and offline and the capability to investigate gang crime should be enhanced.
He asked for an in-depth study of relevant laws and policies, more detailed standards for law enforcement and closer cooperation between the police and other departments.
