Dui Hua Translation: China's New Rules on Evidence in Criminal Trials

 

On June 25, 2010, China's Supreme People's Court, Supreme People's Procuratorate, Ministry of Public Security, Ministry of State Security, and Ministry of Justice formally published two sets of rules regarding the use of evidence in capital cases and the procedure for excluding confessions by criminal suspects that had been obtained through illegal means such as torture. First announced at the end of May, these new rules have been the subject of much discussion in recent weeks.

 

To make the content of these new rules available to a broader audience, Dui Hua has produced English translations of the texts, released in three separate blog posts on Dui Hua's Human Rights Journal and also linked below.
