China: Draft Criminal Procedure Law amendments would mean further deprivation of right to fair trial before court
Proposed amendments to China’s Criminal Procedure Law (CPL), if adopted in their current form, would violate the right to a fair trial by depriving defendants of minimum guarantees, including to be tried in their presence and in public hearings, and by infringing upon the independence and impartiality of courts. As the public consultation period on these amendments comes to a close, Amnesty International calls upon the Chinese government to ensure that they are brought into conformity with its obligations under international human rights law and standards.
