The Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) has pledged to promote environment protection and law enforcement in Tibet and other Tibetan-inhabited areas.

The SPP made the pledges at a session to study the role of judicial organs in Tibet-related cases on September 29, 2015.

The SPP said in a statement that it will go after major cases involving environmental damage in Tibet and other Tibetan-inhabited areas in Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu and Qinghai.

Prosecutors of the five regions must realize the importance of environmental protection and crack down on environmental crimes in accordance with law, it said.

Addressing the meeting, Cao Jianming, head of the Supreme People's Procuratorate, stressed adherence to the principle that all people are equal before the law in punishing and preventing crimes in the above-mentioned regions.

He also urged grass-roots law officers to explain law and the harm of criminal acts to the public to win their understanding and support.
