  Latest statistics released by China's top court on Wednesday showed that information of 8.87 million people who did not comply with court rulings have been disclosed since 2013.

  The Supreme People's Court aims to force defaulters to obey verdicts as quickly as possible through the "blacklist", in which their personal information, including names and identify card numbers, must be open to public.

  Meanwhile, the top court also upheld the improved credit system by restricting daily life of those who refuse to obey rulings.

  So far, for example, 3.4 million defaulters have been barred from buying tickets of high-speed trains and high-class coaches of common trains, according to a statement of the top court.

  More than 170,000 people have been barred from becoming representatives or executives of enterprises up to now, it added.

  Courts also cooperate with other departments, such as banks, to find out about defaulters' properties in a timely manner through information sharing systems.

  On Wednesday, the top court signed a memorandum with the State Administration of Taxation, "hoping to join efforts to fight defaulters after the information exchange", said Liu Guixiang, a senior official of the top court.

  Ren Rong, chief economist of the administration, echoed him, saying it will increase efforts to improve the authority's technical system, "and we'll communicate more with the top court and play our role in providing tax services for residents," he added.
