- Relatives exemption from privilege; Privilege exemption; Status quo
- The exemption of relatives' privileges is an important right stipulated in China's Criminal Procedure Law and an important system for maintaining family ethics. However, the privilege of exemption from the relatives of our country has problems such as unclear rights subject, unspecified content, contradiction between the privilege and the accused's cross-examination right, and narrow scope of application. From the perspective of comparative law, this paper draws on the relevant provisions on relative immunity abroad, and combines the status quo of relative immunity of our country to further explore its existing problems and propose some suggestions for improvement.
