In recent years, with the heated discussions over cases such as Ziyao Wang and Koukou Zhang, the relationship between judicial decisions and public opinion has become a focus of academic attention. Public opinion and judicial decisions should be mutually independent, but the intervention of public opinion does not necessarily affect judicial independence. Instead, public opinion plays a role in supervising the fairness of judicial decisions. Coordinating the relationship between public opinion and judicial decisions is a long-term task that needs to be continuously improved in the process of promoting the comprehensive rule of law.
