BEIJING, July 27 (Xinhua) -- The Supreme People's Court (SPC) of China on Tuesday urged courts across the country to accept scrutiny by the press and general public.

The courts must constantly listen to the public so they can carry out their work in a better way, Shen Deyong, executive vice president of the SPC, told a national conference on the publicity work of courts.

After hailing achievements of the courts in providing information to the public, Shen said some courts did not pay enough attention to public opinion.

"The public are paying more attention to court work, their expectations are growing. They want to know more, participate more and supervise more," he said.

Shen urged courts to disclose information on major issues in a timely fashion, so as to avoid public suspicion and damage to judicial authority.

The Supreme People's Court will train spokespeople and publicity officials of courts nationwide in the second half of the year.
