Implementation of Respecting and Safeguarding Human Rights Provisions at the Criminal Justice

Jing WANG, Weiliang YAO


The amended “Code of Criminal Procedure” in 2012 has written “respecting and safeguarding human rights” into the Article 2 of this provision. This is a tremendous progress in our criminal justice. Essentially, the fundamental purpose of criminal justice system is to safeguard citizens, especially the human rights of criminal suspects and criminal defendants. Currently, although the criminal justice system in China has made significantly progress in the protection of human rights in recent years, there are still many problems. By the occasion of the amendment to the “Code of Criminal Procedure”, it should further improve human rights protection mechanisms of criminal justice in China and raise the legalization level of criminal justice in China.
