A Study of Interaction Between Network Opinion and Judicial Progress: Perspective From Judgments of Several Criminal Cases

Zhengquan LIU


Nowadays the network opinion, to some extent, represents appeals of the public to the pursuit of social justice, playing an utmost impact on judicial trials. Whereas network is sentimental and also with the features of virtuality and undiscipline and lack of rigorous procedures and the like, which can not intervene or even replace the normal functional progress of the judiciary trial which is very separate from other social activities. Network opinion plays an important role in promoting the realization of social justice, and also an imperative role in the supervision of judicial trials. The independence of judicial trials should not be surrendered due to the impact of network opinion. And the judicial trial should be open to cater to the need of the public, subject to the voice of the public on procedural fairness and disclosure by facing the network opinion in a correct way and accepting its supervision, to make each of the judged cases fair and square as time goes on. A combination of lawful effect and social effect will also be achieved as a whole with the guidance of judicial justice as the unique dominating value.
