BEIJING: With China sparing no effort to fight pollution in recent years, courts across the country have handled a rapidly rising number of environment-related lawsuits in the past five years, according to the nation’s top court.

The Supreme People’s Court, in its work report released on Friday, said the number of criminal environmental cases heard by courts nationwide between 2013 and 2017 increased by 65.6 times compared with the period from 2008 to 2012.
