China is to abolish its "re-education through labour" system, under which police panels can sentence offenders to years in camps without a trial, the official Xinhua news agency said Friday. The move was "part of efforts to improve human rights and judicial practices" it said, and came in a detailed reform statement issued after a Communist party meeting, adding it would also reduce "step by step" the number of crimes subject to the death penalty.
