A Study on the Witness-Protection System in the Process of Investigating Crimes: In a Perspective of the Legalized Witness-Protection System in Taiwan

Wenlong GONG


At present, the establishment of the witness-protection system in the process of  investigating crimes is still in its infant step in China. The relevant laws and regulations are specifically found in the “Code of Criminal Procedure” and some other judicial interpretations. To build up this system judicially, the human rights must be put into priority. Based on the revised version of the “Code of Criminal Procedure” in 2013, this paper describes the deficiency of this law document, intβgrating the enlightening Taiwan examples into the discussion of those in China to explore the development of the witness-protection system.
