Fact-finding, as the foundation of a judicial decision, has been an important consideration in China's judicial reform. This study introduces the theory of evidence-based information and falsification methods in the fact-finding procedure of criminal investigations and proposes a paradigm for fact-finding using combined pairs of approaches: individual evidence examination and global analysis, the objective basis and subjective perception of fact-finders, and methods of verification and falsification. The working procedure of the paradigm is illustrated with the objective of making a contribution to the improvement of the existing model of fact-finding in the criminal justice process.
