Twelve CPPCC members and experts and scholars advised on the theoretical basis, practical exploration, coordination mechanism, team building, and public participation of public interest litigation procuratorial work. Nearly 120 members actively expressed their opinions on the mobile duty performance platform of the CPPCC National Committee members. Everyone believes that in recent years, the procuratorial public interest litigation system has achieved obvious results from the top-level design to the implementation of implementation, from partial trials to full implementation, and formed the "China Plan" for judicial protection of public welfare. At the same time, as a new thing, the procuratorial work of public interest litigation is still in its infancy, and there are problems such as imbalanced work development, inadequate legal basis and system support, inadequate business capabilities, and unsmooth collaboration mechanisms, which need to be continuously summarized and improved in practice.
Some members suggested that we should actively and steadily expand the scope of procuratorial public interest litigation, and on the basis of doing a good job in the existing fields, explore the inclusion of safe production, protection of personal information of citizens, protection of minors, etc., and respond to people's concerns. It is necessary to grasp the statutory duties and working principles, clarify the order and relevant procedures for lawsuits brought by administrative organs, public welfare organizations, and procuratorial organs, and strengthen the coordination of prosecutions. It is necessary to strengthen the link between public interest litigation procuratorial work and administrative law enforcement, and improve working mechanisms such as information resource sharing, case lead transfer, and investigation and evidence collection. It is necessary to establish and improve the system of expert assistants and expert consultation systems for public interest litigation, improve the judicial appraisal system, and solve problems such as the high cost and long cycle of case appraisal. It is necessary to establish a big data platform for environmental public interest litigation, clarify acceptance criteria for ecological restoration, and improve the scientific and normative nature of environmental restoration after litigation. It is necessary to increase publicity, tell the story of public interest litigation and prosecution, unblock the channels of public participation, and form a good social trend of protecting public welfare “everyone is responsible, everyone is responsible, and everyone is sharing”.
