People working in the education industry who commit violent crimes against children, such as sexual assault, abuse, abduction and trafficking, will be banned for life from working in the sector in China, China Daily reported.

The 10-article guideline, jointly issued on Friday by the country's top judicial authorities -- the Supreme People's Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorate --as well as the Ministry of Education, aims to strengthen the protection of juveniles and eliminate wayward workers from the industry.

Lauding the guideline, which will come into effect from Tuesday, Xu Hao, a lawyer from Beijing Jingsh Law Firm, said that it will not only keep children far from harm, but is also good for the education sector.

"A number of offenses regarding sexual assault in recent years occurred on campus and were found to be committed by educators," he said. "In a case, for example, a primary school teacher was punished for sexually abusing several girls in his dormitory between 2013 and 2019."

Prohibiting such people from working in close contact with children has been highlighted over the past few years, when the Criminal Law and the Minor Protection Law were revized, Xu said, but he added that "there was still a problem -- how long the ban should be and how it works -- that often confused us in legal practice". (With inputs from China Daily)
