BEIJING -- China's Supreme People's Court (SPC) on Wednesday announced a campaign to expose corruption and other irregularities among law enforcers.

The campaign, scheduled to last until November, will target passive, selective, wayward and corrupt law enforcement, which hampers public trust in the judicial system, said Wu Shaojun, deputy director with the SPC's law enforcement bureau.

Wu said the move aimed to tackle major problems by rectifying and standardizing law enforcement and the exemplary punishments for a batch of violators.

The SPC also plans to establish a long-term mechanism to deal with passive and wayward law enforcement.
