BEIJING, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- Chinese courts at all levels have launched websites for collecting tip-offs of illegal conduct by staff, the Supreme People's Court (SPC) has said.

All intermediate courts and most of grassroots courts have launched their websites in recent days, and connected to the sites already run by the SPC and all higher people's courts.

The SPC launched its site in May 2009. In February 2011, all higher people's courts had tip-off websites of their own and the SPC started to push the concept at all four levels of courts.

People can access tip-offs websites of all courts through the SPC (jubao.court.gov.cn). Upper courts can guide and monitor lower courts through the system.

Zhou Qiang, president of the SPC, said each tip-off should be taken seriously to establish the authority of the law and judicial credibility.
