Tracking credit may help promote court justice

The Supreme People's Court recently issued a regulation that those who avoid implementing court rulings by transferring property or other cheating measures will be blacklisted. A good move, said a column in People's Daily (excerpts below).
For people involved in economic lawsuits, a common headache is the difficulty of implementing the court rulings. There are many cases where those who lose the case transfer their property or use other cheating methods to avoid paying as the court required. A bitter joke from those who won the case is that they have "won the case but lost the money".
The phenomenon might be rare, but it hurts social justice and can cause tragedies in extreme cases. The recent regulation of the Supreme People's Court will help address the issue. Those who avoid implementing the rulings will be added to a list and published through the media. They might face difficulties in applying for loans or other procedures due to bad credit.
Further, the regulation can encourage more people to follow court rulings so as to avoid losses of credit. A social credit system might even be established in the long run, so that social justice can be further promoted.
