Jia Chunwang (simplified Chinese: 贾春旺; traditional Chinese: 賈春旺; pinyin: Jiǎ Chūnwàng; born 1938) was the former Procurator-general of the Supreme People's Procuratorate, a post equivalent to Attorney General in the United States.

Biography[edit]

Jia served several important posts before reaching the position. Han Zhubin (韩杼滨) was his immediate predecessor.

Jia Chunwang was the member of the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th CPC Central Committee from 1987 to 2007.

He was one of the longest-serving chiefs of the Ministry of State Security. He is a native of Beijing and a 1964 graduate of Tsinghua University, who is reportedly an admirer of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. He served as Minister of State Security from 1985 until March 1998, when the MSS underwent an overhaul and Xu Yongyue was appointed the new head of the organization. Jia was then appointed to the Minister of Public Security post, after a decade of distinguished service as head of the MSS.
