In order to develop pupils' legal consciousness, strengthen the self-protection ability for minors and help children keep away from danger, Yanji Women's Federation and Yanji People's Court jointly launched a 'Juvenile Mock Trial' in the Yanji People's Court, northeast China's Jilin Province on June 19, 2014.
The trial is based on a real case about a junior high school student, who was addicted to the Internet. Because the student had spent too much money on surfing the Internet, he robbed two pupils at knifepoint, slightly injuring one. The student was accused of robbery and was eventually sentenced.
According to this vivid and interesting activity, the organizers said they hoped the minors would be able to understand the relevant provisions on the Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure Law, and be made keenly aware that the law can not be infringed, thus encouraging them to work harder on improving their legal knowledge and becoming law-abiding citizens.
It is reported that all of the 13 juvenile judges come from Henan Primary School and more than 160 pupils in their school and staff members of Yanji Women's Federation attended the mock trial.
