Abstract

The Judicial Reform Committee [JRC] was organized under the Supreme Court on October 28, 2003, which submitted final recommendations for the revision of the Criminal Procedure Code [CPC] on the last day of 2004. On December 15, 2004, the Presidential Committee on Judicial Reform was established to implement the 2004 recommendations of the JRC, and submitted a bill for the revision of the CPC after a period of heated discussions and debates. On December 21, 2007, the bill passed in the National Assembly. The 2007 revision of the CPC was made as a comprehensive solution for the task. The introduction of the jury trial by the 2007 Act for Civil Participation in Criminal Trials in 2007 was also a drastic change to the Korean criminal justice. It was a result of both the rapid growth of political democracy and the distrust of judicial integrity. (The rest omitted)
