Abstract:

The intimidation of defense attorneys poses a major challenge to China's criminal justice system and the Chinese leadership's stated goals of building the rule of law and protecting the rights of PRC citizens. In recent years, China's leaders have taken some positive steps toward these goals by amending the PRC Criminal Procedure Law to enhance the rights of criminal defendants and making public commitments to restrain law enforcement abuses. However, these steps forward are being undermined by the intimidation of China's defense attorneys. Such harassment, which has been highlighted by the recent prosecution of Zhang Jianzhong, one of China's most prominent defense lawyers, has contributed to low morale in the Chinese defense bar and a lack of aggressiveness in criminal defense. It has also contributed to a steady decline in the percentage of Chinese criminal defendants represented by legal counsel, despite a continuing increase in the number of lawyers in China. These trends have sparked a vibrant debate in China on appropriate protections for criminal defense lawyers. Chinese authorities can take several steps to address these problems by: (1) recognizing the important implications of the Zhang Jianzhong case for rule of law in China and demonstrating that Zhang has been treated fairly under the law; (2) repealing Article 306 of the PRC Criminal Law, an unnecessary provision on evidence fabrication that is often used to harass defense attorneys; (3) raising evidentiary requirements in evidence fabrication cases and clarifying related statutory language; and (4) giving an All China Lawyers Association disciplinary committee primary responsibility for adjudicating cases of evidence fabrication and similar misconduct involving defense attorneys.--Executive summary.
