The entry into force of the "Two Evidence Provisions" and the newly amended Criminal Procedure Law has led to the establishment of the rule of excluding illegal evidence in China, which is of great significance to the protection of human rights in the entire criminal field. It is necessary to interpret the application of the doctrine of the fruit of the poisonous tree in China's criminal proceedings, to clarify the necessity of its application and the criteria for its application, so as to enhance the effectiveness of the application of the rule on the exclusion of illegal evidence.
