Abstract

Both the operations of Chinese criminal proceedings and the making of judicial decisions are based on various types of evidence and written materials found in their primary vehicle -- the dossier. The unique characteristics of the Chinese criminal dossier system can be explained through its judicial power structure type, judicial purpose, and procedural structure. With the development of these structurally-related factors, most of the characteristics of the Chinese criminal dossier system will remain intact for quite some time. However, changes will occur in its form and use.

Keywords: criminal dossier, empirical study, unique characteristics
