BEIJING, July 31 (Xinhua) -- A new law on protecting military personnel's status, rights, and interests will come into effect on Sunday, which marks China's Army Day.

The law was adopted on June 10 and stipulates the basic treatment enjoyed by military personnel regarding salaries, housing, healthcare services, insurance, vacations, education, and others.

It also laid down how families of martyrs should receive preferential treatment for matters including employment and their children's education.

In addition, starting from Sunday, military personnel left with disabilities will be given an average of a 10-percent increase in their pensions under the government's new scheme.

Starting from August, a new judicial interpretation will also take effect, banning the misuse of facial recognition at business or public premises.

According to the new document, misusing the technology of facial recognition, including recognizing or analyzing facial data, could constitute an infringement of personality rights or interests.

Other new regulations coming into force next month will impose stricter management on fire safety issues and the pork processing industry.
