JAN . 02 2019
Peking University, Dec. 28, 2018: The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) plans to honor 100 outstanding individuals who have made great contributions to China’s reform and opening-up. Three PKU teachers, Wang Xuan, Li Yining, and Justin Yifu Lin, were on the list, along with eight PKU alumni, Yu Min, Wang Jiafu, Robin Li  Yanhong, Zou Bihua, Hu Fuming, Zhong Nanshan, Tu Youyou and Fan Jinshi.

Zou Bihua (1967 - 2014) was a senior judge at Shanghai High People’s Court. Since graduated from the Law School of Peking University, Zou Bihua has dedicated most of his efforts into pursuing justice through reasonable judgment. As a member of the CPC, he also persisted in the reform of judicial process for the convenience of common people and set up the hotline “12368” covering the whole judicial system in Shanghai. On December 10, 2014, he passed away due to a heart attack during the work, which raised spontaneous mourning among many people.
