Practice Relating to Rule 123. Recording and Notification of Personal Details of Persons Deprived of Their Liberty
China’s Martial Law (1996) states:
The martial-law-enforcing officers shall have the persons, whom they have detained in accordance with the provisions of this Law, immediately registered and interrogated and shall release the ones as soon as they find that there is no need to detain them any longer.
During the period of martial law, the procedures and time limit for detention and arrest may be free from the restrictions of the relevant provisions of the Criminal Procedure Law of the People’s Republic of China, except that an arrest shall be subject to approval or decision of a People’s Procuratorate.
