Administrative Trap Investigation

Jiangli ZHANG


Faced with some offenses which are hidden quite secretly and organized with high degree, administrative enforcement agencies are often unable to obtain evidence or seize offenders through conventional methods of investigation. In that case, public interest and legitimate rights of offenders should be weighed and balanced, and administrative enforcement agencies should be allowed to adopt unconventional means of investigation under certain circumstances. Administrative trap investigation is an unconventional way of investigation. The paper will discuss its meaning and nature, skepticism, realistic rationality, legal regulation and other aspects.
