Around 300 public prosecutors from all over China gathered in Jishou – Hunan province – at the end of August to attend a week-long training course. The Sino-German Legal Cooperation Programme organized part of this course in cooperation with the Theory Research Institute of the Supreme People’s Procuratorate (RISPP). On the 21th and 22nd of August 2018, the Chinese public prosecutors listened to speeches of three German legal experts on different aspects of German criminal (procedural) law. Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Schünemann, of the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, spoke about the constituent elements of criminal offences and the principle of unlawfulness and guilt in German criminal law. Senior Public Prosecutor Dr. Böhmer, from the Public Prosecution Service in Nurnberg, informed her Chinese colleagues about different aspects of the German Public Prosecution Service. Educational requirements, the laws concerning dismissal and relocation and the limitations to the right to give instructions were presented and discussed. Dr. Schlichte, Director of the Sino-German Legal Cooperation Programme and Judge at the Local Court of Hamburg, spoke about legal provisions and guidelines governing sentencing. A fictional case served as a starting point for a discussion.
