Top court makes clear upholding the law doesn’t mean being harsh
The Supreme People’s Court issued directives on giving full play to judicial functions to help the development of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.
It proposes 20 specific measures, including establishing a “green channel” for small businesses to settle their debt disputes, saying no to “criminal law comes prior to civil law” in resolving SMEs’ disputes, and banning arbitrary probes and the shutting down of SMEs.
Some have said that the document, which outlines 20 means of providing judicial assistance for SMEs, shows the courage to crack the hardest nuts in the field.
It indicates that the SPC has put itself in the position of SMEs to help solve their problems, and is committed to helping them resolve some of their old problems in judicial practice.
