BEIJING, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- China will strengthen its law-enforcement sector in a comprehensive way, so as to better implement the policy of "Rule by Law," provide social fairness and justice, make the public feel safer and improve social harmony and stability.

The senior Party official urged law-enforcement departments to uphold the great banner of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics, be guided by Deng Xiaoping Theory and the important thoughts of the "Three Represents," which say the CPC represents the most advanced productivity and culture in China, as well as the best interests of the overwhelming majority of the Chinese people, and further implement the Scientific Concept of Development.
