China's "shame parade" ban reflects better protection of rights, dignity: expert - People's Daily Online

China's "shame parade" ban reflects better protection of rights, dignity: expert - People's Daily Online

China's recent ban on "prostitute parades" may showcase the country's growing respect for human rights and dignity during law enforcement, especially for criminal suspects, a political advisor said in Beijing Thursday.

The "shame parades" had not only been humiliating, but also were in violation of Chinese laws and regulations, said Cao Yisun, a professor with the China University of Political Science and Law, and a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).

Earlier this week, China's Ministry of Public Security published a notice demanding police authorities end the public shaming of prostitution suspects by parading them through the streets and other humiliating practices.
