About This Title

On March 14, 2012, the National People’s Congress of the People’s Republic of China 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 of 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, article-by-article annotations, and English-Chinese and Chinese-English glossaries for Chinese criminal procedure law.
