Courts should register objections and files relating to enforcment of judgments within three days, issuing a prompt reply to those involved, the top court said on Tuesday.

In some cases, sentences may violate the interests of some or are hard to implement due to interference by interested parties.

In order to enforce sentences and protect people's interests, the Supreme People's Court released a new regulation on issues of objection to court decisions after revising the draft several times since 2009.

It said after registering objections, courts at all levels need to decide whether or not to file the investigation within three days and send a response to litigants.

If objections meet the conditions of acceptance, the courts need to do more investigations. If not the objection will be rejected, according to the new regulation.

Registering of cases is the entry point to the judicial process through which people can protect their legal interests, thus courts should register objections and reply to litigants promptly, said Zhang Genda, deputy head of the implementation bureau.
