China to ‘severely punish’ food safety crimes

A procurator is not a procreator (could be) but an officer of the state charged with the investigation and prosecution of civil law rather than common law. Or so says wiki.

China’s Supreme People’s Procuratorate on Tuesday issued a circular urging procuratorates at all levels to "severely punish" violators in food safety crimes and officials’ exhibiting delinquency in duty.

Procuratorates at all levels should work closely with public security organs and courts to give high priority to the crackdown on food safety crimes, according to the circular.

Officials found taking bribes and practicing dereliction of duty by covering up food safety hazards and helping violators evade supervision will be investigated and prosecuted "without giving any leniency," it said.

But I’m sometimes silly, and couldn’t help but reference this Monty Python and the Holy Grail clip.
