A Discussion on the Issue of Amount Accumulation of Two Theft

Chuan HAO, Yuanling MA


The 2013 Supreme People’s Court and Supreme People’s Procuratorate’s Interpretations on Several Issues of Applicable Laws of Handling Theft Criminal Cases has made corresponding provisions on crime of theft and “repeated theft”, but has not mentioned whether two offences of theft amounting to a large stolen amount is to be convicted as a crime or not. Two offences are obviously more serious than one offence, which is however not recognized as a crime. In judicial practices such cases can be found everywhere. Whether this is to condone crime or to prevent crime, public opinions are divergent.
