The importance of the system supporting prosecution in cases involving the elderly is elucidated from the perspectives of safeguarding rights and meeting practical needs. Building upon this foundation and utilizing judicial cases, an analysis reveals several issues in the operation of the system, including vague standards for reviewing support recipients, unclear subjects initiating the prosecution, and lack of uniformity in the methods of supporting prosecution. Suggestions are put forth to address these challenges, emphasizing the need to clarify standards for reviewing support recipients, specify the subjects initiating the prosecution, and define the specific methods of supporting prosecution. This offers theoretical guidance for addressing practical challenges in the implementation of the system.
