An Analysis of the Trial Mechanisms of Overlapping Maritime and Criminal Cases
【中文摘要】刑事附带民事诉讼制度与海事案件专属管辖制度的并存，造成了 我国司法审判实务中审理海事与刑事交叉案件的混乱。从海事案件的高度专业性 和技术性出发，海事与刑事交叉案件的审理不应拘泥于现行立法关于刑事附带民 事诉讼的规定，而应当由海事法院与地方法院对海事海商部分和刑事部分分别审 理，在刑事案件尚未审结前，海事法院对法律事实基本清楚的民事案件应当及时 作出裁判。 【Abstract】The co-existence of mechanisms of incidental civil action and the exclusive jurisdiction of maritime cases has caused disorder and confusion in the trial of overlapping maritime and criminal cases in judicial practice in China. Due to the highly specialized and technical character of maritime cases, the entertainment of overlapping maritime and criminal cases should not be confined by current legislation regarding incidental civil action. Rather, these two parts shall be adjudicated separately with maritime aspects of cases adjudicated by maritime courts and criminal aspects of cases adjudicated by local courts. Prior to the conclusion of the criminal aspects, maritime courts should promptly issue their judgment or ruling on civil aspects whose legal facts are basically clear.
