Truth and Procedural Fairness in Chinese Criminal Procedure Law
30 เม.ย. 2562
The aim of this research is to examine the way how the search for truth is attempted to be reconciled with the idea of a fair trial or procedural fairness in Chinese criminal law. The conflict between the search for truth on the one hand and guaranteeing procedural rights of the accused is particularly problematic in the Chinese context. China presents an immense diversity of ethnic groups, cultures, and practices. Therefore, this research will not attempt to describe the actual situation in a particular part of China. Rather, it concentrates on the analysis of the legislative materials to see the channels of the resolution of this conflict. The results of this research will be utilized in teaching to enable Thai students to understand better the fundamental principles and ideas of criminal procedural law.
