At the first special ombudsman recruitment meeting held by the National Supervisory Commission on December 17, he was appointed as a special ombudsman.

This is the first time that the State Ombudsmen have been appointed since the National Supervisory Commission was established in March this year. It is also the implementation of the “Measures” by the National Supervisory Commission.


In this meeting, Dr. Zhou combined with CBCGDF’s work in the field of environmental public interest litigation (EPIL), and Professor Zhang Mingkai’s content related to environmental crimes, the relationship between the public interest litigation work of the supervisory organs, criminal crimes and civil environmental public interest litigation. The topics have been discussed in detail, and it is hoped that through the system of Professor Zhang Mingkai and the Special Ombudsman, the relevant work will be actively promoted.
