An amendment to the Criminal Law was passed by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature, on Friday.

The amended law, which will take effect on March 1, has intensified the fight against bribe-givers, stating that those offering bribes repeatedly, to multiple people, or parties involved in major national projects should be harshly punished.

People who give bribes to staff members of supervisory, administrative or judicial departments, or bribe in fields such as environment, finance, safety production, drug and food, social insurance, rescue relief, education or healthcare, also need to face severe punishment, the law added.
