Precautions for Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform

In response to the expectations of the public regarding the protection of victim litigation information by judicial authorities, the Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform has been established. This platform enables victims to have a clear understanding of the progress, outcomes, and information related to their rights in criminal proceedings. By providing victims with access to case information, it helps alleviate their uncertainties and ensures their personal safety, thereby providing comprehensive protection. To provide specific guidelines for the operation of the Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform by the prosecution authorities, the "Precautions for Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform" (hereinafter referred to as "these precautions") have been formulated. The key points are as follows:

Point 1
These precautions are established to provide specific guidelines for the prosecution authorities in handling the Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform during the investigation.

Point 2
The Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform applies to cases involving murder, serious injury, robbery, kidnapping for ransom, sexual offenses, or other crimes that significantly affect the rights of victims and are deemed necessary by the prosecutor. However, it does not include juvenile criminal cases.

Point 3
Victims of crimes may apply to the prosecution authorities to access case information through the Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform, as stated in Point 9. However, if the victim lacks legal capacity or has limited legal capacity or is deceased, the application may be made by their spouse, direct blood relatives, relatives within three degrees of collateral consanguinity, relatives within two degrees of affinity, or their parents or family members.

Point 4
The applicant should fill out an application form and submit it to the prosecuting authority currently handling the case to request access to the Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform. If the applicant is not a victim of the crime, relevant identification documents should be provided. If the applicant mistakenly submits the application to a prosecuting authority other than the appropriate one, the receiving prosecuting authority should transfer the application to the appropriate authority and notify the applicant.

Point 5
Upon receiving the applicant's application, the prosecuting authority should promptly assign the case and seal the application form separately.

Point 6
After accepting the application, the prosecuting authority should establish the victim's information and notify the applicant of the approval or rejection. If the application is approved, the Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform will send an account notification message to the applicant. After the applicant changes the password, the platform will send case information notification messages.

Point 7
The prosecuting authority will only provide case information that occurs or continues after the approval of the application.

Point 8
When the applicant fills out an application form to request the cessation of receiving case information, the notification will be terminated.

Point 9
During the investigation, the applicant can access information through the Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform to learn about the prosecutor's decisions on mandatory measures against the defendant, investigation results, and information regarding the arrest of the defendant. However, if the prosecutor deems that the notification will obstruct the progress of the investigation, it may be withheld. Once the obstruction ceases to exist, the prosecutor should resume the notification.

Point 10
If the defendant in the ongoing investigation is informed by the prosecutor about mandatory measures, the prosecuting authority will provide the case information to the applicant. If the defendant applies for detention to the court and the court issues a decision on mandatory measures, the court will provide the case information to the applicant.

Point 11
The Victim Criminal Litigation Information Access Platform will notify the applicant of case information through email. Depending on the specific circumstances of individual cases, the prosecutor may also use other methods to notify the applicant of case information.
