Back from the Dead

University of Hawai'i Press

In the third case of “back from the dead,” Zhao Zuohai was arrested for murdering a villager in1998 and convicted in 2002. In 2010, after the “victim” came back alive to the village, a retrial commission organized by the High Court overruled the conviction against Zuohai and released him. Influenced by this wrongful conviction, the “Two Provisions on Criminal Evidence” were issued in June 2010. Against the background of this story, and drawing on the results of a survey of judges, the author discusses issues relating to illegally obtained evidence and calls for a higher standard for evidence collection, examination, and evaluation.

Keywords:   exclusionary rule, Criminal Procedure Law, right to silence, Zhao Zuohai
