without such elements should not be handled as gang crimes, Jiang said. Also, to be iden
tified as a gang members, suspects must be aware of the mafia-style nature of the activities they are involved in.
“We’ve seen cases where judicial workers at the grassroots level have wrongly identifie
d mafia-style criminal gangs, so clarifying the legal definition is very important. Such g
angs are sometimes associated with crimes such as organizing prostitution and drug traffic
king, but it doesn’t mean that any group that is involved in such criminal activities can be handled as a mafia-style gang,”
said Lin Wei, vice-president of the University of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and an expert in law.
According to the directive, gang members who commit minor crimes or who cause little bodi

The University of Cambridge on Monday confirmed that China’s gaok
ao, or the National College Entrance Examination, is regarded as a suitable preparation for Ca
mbridge, in response to inquiries on whether it recognizes gaokao scores in a post on its official Sina Weibo account.
The inquiries poured in after reports said that the University of Camb
ridge announced it has started to accept China’s gaokao scores for Chinese stud
ents wishing to apply for undergraduate study at the prestigious British university.
The university, however, said this is not something new, but a policy Cambridge has implemented for years.
According to application information on the university’s website, successful applicants from China will usually have score
s in the top 0.1 percent of those taking the gaokao in their province. Applicants’ individual subject scores and scores in th
the EU can’t easily be predicted.
The difficulty for the EU is that, long or short, any delay comes with complications. And this is where opinions in European capitals start to diverge.
If the UK hasn’t left the EU by May 22, it might have to take part in elections to the European Parli
amentary elections, which begin the following day. Not doing so could be a breach of the UK’s obligations as a
member state.And if that happens, there is a real concern in Brussels that hardline Euroskeptics could stand for elect
ion, in protest at Britain not yet having yet Brexited. They might find a receptive public, and in turn, join interesting new fr
iends in the European Parliament. Sound far fetched? An EU source recently told CNN of worries in Brussels that far-right figures like To
mmy Robinson could end up as Members of the European Parliament, with all the associated attention that brings.
So a short delay is the preferred option of many in Brussels, especially in the Parliament. But that brings its own set of issues. Fi
rst, there is no guarantee that by the end of it, the UK Parliament would have given a thumbs up to May’s deal. In reality, it cou
ld just mean a delay to a no-deal Brexit that almost everyone claims they want to avoid, but still remains the default legal position.
