/ China/ PoliticsChina improves maritime law enforcementUpdated: 2013-07-09 14:46( Xinhua)Comments Print Mail Large Medium  SmallBEIJING – Chinas maritime authority has beefed up its law enforcement capabilities in order to further protect the countrys oceanic rights and interests, according to an official document that was unveiled on Tuesday.
The document, which was posted on the central governments website, includes a rule regarding the duties and functions of the State Oceanic Administration (SOA). The SOA was restructured earlier this year along with several other government departments.
The rule, which was recently approved by the State Council, highlights the SOAs expanded duties concerning law enforcement and the protection of maritime rights.
The maritime police command, a department under the SOA, will be tasked with commanding and deploying marine police officers, according to the rule.
The maritime police has three branches, namely the North Sea Branch, the East Sea Branch and the South Sea Branch, with a total of 11 corps across Chinas coastal provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities.
The SOA is responsible for conducting law enforcement activities in waters that are under Chinese jurisdiction, the rule says.
Safeguarding maritime boundaries and dealing with criminal activity on the sea are among the SOAs designated duties.
The rule also says the administration is responsible for guarding the safety of key maritime areas and coping with emergencies.8.03KRelated StoriesChina, Vietnam to maintain maritime dialoguesChinas 1st NBC maritime rescue team unveiledPLA Navy drills are routineChina reaffirms rights over shoal of NanshaMaritime dispute to be addressedMaritime law enforcement to double air patrols, report saysPhotoUnderwater kissing contest a wet affairChinas youngest city glistens under palm treesXinjiang tourism recoveringMourn for students in San Francisco air crash Double-decker bus caught fire in ShanghaiChinese students put on duck-and-cover drillSelf-sufficient elderly at welfare homeJilin breaks world record in river lamp festival More China NewsTransparency urged after lunch scandalCrash victims parents leave for USExperts call for legislation on latchkey childrenAttacks a blow to Xinjiang tourismNations mark opening of joint water projectPremier Li lauds Guangxis potentialMore World NewsLadens life on the run revealedUS mulls speeding up withdrawal from AfghanistanUS ambassador denies Brazils spying accusationCountry singer Randy Travis in critical conditionRamadan to begin on Wednesday in JordanVictim of plane crash might have been run overMost ViewedTodays Top NewsGraft fight stepped up;ex-rail chief sentencedPlane pilot in trainingChinas inflation grows 2.7% in JuneEgypt sets timeline for power transferCrash victim may have been run overRiver pollution sparks criticismTerror attack was planned: suspect…Editors PicksUnderwater kissing contest a wet affairXinjiang tourism recovering Cool down in an ice bar in NYCRamadan to begin on Wednesday in Jordan Xue/Zhang win first title at worldsLin retains mens 1m springboard title at UniversiadeHot TopicsChinese dream, Edward Snowden, Shenzhou X, Xi Jinping, corruption, Apple, DPRK, Diaoyu Islands, Syria, Taiwan, HK, Tibet, Beijing, Li Na, Yao Ming, Wimbledon, My China Story, bird flu, David BeckhamSpecial CoverageKill or cure: Vaccines in ChinaHats off its graduation time Focus on education reformFocus on drug abuseVideoSlidePodcastPicturesFollow the AmbassadorsChinas royal Gaocheng lanternsRed Bull soapbox raceInspired Murray ends 77 years of British hurt
