Abstract

From the criminalization of terrorist organizations in China’s criminal law in 1997 to Amendment III of the Criminal Law enacted after the September 11th event in the US, then to the Decision on Strengthening the Related Working Issues of Anti-terrorism, China’s anti-terrorism criminal laws show the following characteristics: they are in accordance with the domestic anti-terrorist situation, consistent with the anti-terrorist strategy of the United Nations, have the distinguishing feature of emergency reaction and the tendency to take strict and stern measures, while exhibiting fragmentation and imperfection. China’s anti-terrorism criminal legislation in the future should move toward a unified law, paying more attention to the guarantee of human rights, implementing the criminal policy of combining leniency with severity and promoting interaction between criminal law and other laws.
