Summary

  • On March 14, 2012, the National People's Congress of the PRC substantially amended the country's 1979 Criminal Procedure Law. The Law was first extensively revised in 1996; this second revision also affects a large number of articles, and expands the Law from 225 to 290 articles. Following the new amendment, the supreme court of China also amended its judicial interpretation to the law. The second edition of this book provides new English translations to the amended Criminal Procedure Law and all the related Chinese official judicial and administrative interpretations. The second edition also includes an in-depth Introduction which briefly surveys the legislative history and intent of Chinese criminal procedure law, discusses how the Criminal Procedure Law is interpreted and supplemented in China, and shows how to update and find relevant judicial interpretations. The author has also included subtitles to every article to enhance research, article-by-article annotations, and English-Chinese and Chinese-English glossaries for Chinese criminal procedure law.

Notes

  • Author's preface, page vii: "This book is the second edition [of my book published in 2000]. I re-checked my translation of the 1996 Amended Criminal Procedure Law and translated the amended articles and new articles in the 2012 Amendment. I also translated...the Interpretations issued by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of the PRC in 2014... Although various versions of the English translation of the Chinese Criminal Procedure Law have been available in print or on the Internet, none of these English translations are annotated with the official interpretations. Therefore, I tried to use the above translated rules and judicial interpretations and other related laws and rules to annotate the 2012 Amended Criminal Procedure Law article by article..."
