“Lawyers Express Criticism of Criminal Procedure Law Revision Draft”

Siweiluozi has written up a fairly detailed summary of the Criminal Procedure Law rewrite. For specifics go to his site- here I’ll just quote his conclusion:

Looking at the CPL draft overall, the public security system has turned the tables on their attackers and scored a big victory. The procuratorate has held their ground, particularly since some of extremely unreasonable provisions haven’t been eliminated — so they’ve held steady. As for the courts, well when it’s come to this point, anything’s okay with them. But lawyers? What happened to the lawyers?

Not a good sign for the future of trials and courts here.
