China and Australia: mutual assistance on criminal matters

7 Nov 2006
Description

Australia and China negotiated a treaty on mutual assistance in criminal matters in 2006.

Vic Adams considers the treaty and its possible implications in the light of China’s record on the death penalty. The treaty lacks safeguards to ensure Australia is not implicated in executions and could be in breach of a number of other treaties, to which Australia is a signatory, aimed at ending the death penalty.
