the worst judicial system country in OECD ( Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ) in 2019.
 Korea Times, 7-2-2020 (www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/opinion/2020/07/162_292043.html): OECD surveyed 37 member countries by asking how many of every
 1,000 people trust their own court systems. The result shows Korea had the lowest numbers of all countries surveyed.

The Apple Daily,  Dec. 7, 2020, (https://tw.appledaily.com/forum/20201207/XDWVJS4BOBGYFHBWI23KR77OEI/ 林孟皇): Taiwan's judges and prosecutors' always "very low"  misdeeds in the past (素行不良的行徑) are hard to find similar case in advanced legal countries; furthermore, recently some famous attorneys also violated work ethics, the overall performance by law people certainly fails to win public trust.

The United Daily, Focus, 11-30-2019:  The prosecutors  and Taiwan's 'FBI' were questioned a lot for years for their political investigations and conducts ...in recent years, the judiciary giving services to DPP almost became a routine...

People's Daily, 10-15-2020, commentary: Taiwan strictly monitors its own people, which is called "Green Terror". http://js.people.com.cn/BIG5/n2/2020/1015/c359574-34350271.html


The United Daily, 10-31-2020, https://udn.com/news/story/7321/4977543 
      Taiwan's judiciary spends lots of money on advertising themselves, but, the truth us Taiwan's justice always made a detour whenever encountering the power and the rich people. (司法砸錢宣傳 遇權貴卻轉彎)   The Supreme Court (最高法院大法庭) has many cases to solve, but no one wants to touch sensitive issues.

●  The United Daily, 7-14-2020,  udn.com/news/story/7339/4699302
Taiwan's president has never talked about a
nti-corruption, in recent years, the prosecutors and investigation gov. have not solved any big corruption cases, unlike lots of crack-downs in old days, instead, they focus on New National Security cases.  No wonder Taiwan president insists abolishing Special Investigation Division (SPD) .

●  The Liberty Times,  7-1-2020  ( Avoid judicial monsters )  :  The main reason that the public do not trust the justice is lacking of external supervision (外部監督力量) and hence quite many controversial legal judgments were out therehttps://news.ltn.com.tw/news/society/paper/1383385

  The China Times, 5-27-2020 : The public trust on Taiwan's prosecutors was suffered severe injuries from the Minister's "guides" and "leads"  (部長下指導棋重傷檢察公信力)   

●  The United Daily, 5-16-2020, https://udn.com/news/story/121092/4567513   (從人權到新威權 變調的司法正義)
       The ruling party DPP has been more "authoritarian" than the way "authoritarian" government in old days was, no wonder the first thing the public have not satisfied with is the judicial reform.  Many question the judicial system was reduced to be the government's tool to strengthen monitoring the public, and many worries, their political opponents   (過去四年許多作為卻比過去威權更威權,立法、執法上不斷加強對人民的監控司法不斷被質疑淪為掌權者工具 司法改革卻是人民最不滿意的重中之重 )

●  The Liberty Times,  7-1-2020 劍青檢改:Taiwan's Control Yuan was reduced to political "hit-man".  https://news.ltn.com.tw/news/society/paper/1383386

●  The United Daily, 5-20-2019    How long can Taiwan judiciary stand being lynched and tortured ? ( 司法還能忍受多久的凌遲?)
       The Control Yuan (監察院) and the Prime Ministry (行政院) repeatedly have taken judiciary as sacrifice-offering  (司法當祭品)

The Liberty Times  (<自由時報>頭版) headlines、3-16-2019: Prime Minister is not satisfied with judicial reform 
ps: The out-of-date judges (and prosecutors) should be out, Gov. is too slow to have this done !










A large number of
officials in Taiwan

might get into an unknown risky situation, if not getting along

well with the prosecutors



The power of the prosecutors

comes from their rights

of criminal investigations




The China Times<中國時報> 、3-22-2019: Taiwanese prosecutors are obsessed with the power 檢察官對權力的迷戀 / 源流專欄




The United Daily,  2-26-2019:  National Chung Cheng university's survey shows that Judicial reform failed to satisfy more than 80% Taiwanese , the public trust on Taiwan judiciary is down to about 20%.    The Liberty Times, head-page, The China Times, head-page, 12-8-2018:  Taiwanese P.M. (賴清德):  Taiwan has not made significant progress on judicial reform, which is roiling with public discontent, that's one cause of ruling party's defeat in elections.    USA Country Reports on Human Rights practices,   4-20-2018:the justice ministry was insufficiently independent and conducted politically motivated investigations of politicians.   The United Daily,  10-31-2018 :  The Judicial Dept. (法務部) took the lead to violate the laws.   The United Daily,  10-23-2018:  The independence of prosecutors has still been questioned ...    UDN 2-13-2018: the progress report of judicial reform by Taiwan's Minister of Judiciary and secretary of Ministry of Justice  Public trust in judges is always low, the protection mechanism of lawsuit right is still not good enough.     The United Daily,  2-27-2018: Taipei mayor Ko said that Taiwan's jail and prison are good only for those have no connections at all.     Apple Daily, opinion, 3-14-2018 : Survey <2017台灣社會信任調查> shows that Taiwan judicial official's / law enforcement officer's public trust is the second last.    FTV, 7-26-2018: Public trust in judges is less than 16%.  

For a long time, judicial system (prosecutors, judges) was one of "corrupt"/"extremely corrupt" institutions in Taiwan ―― commentators questioned the impartiality (e.g., Non-external intervention of the judiciary, fair trials) of Taiwan's prosecutors and judges,  National Chung Cheng university's survey (head-page of the Liberty Times, 2-23-2016) found: nearly 80% Taiwanese people don't believe the impartiality of Taiwan's prosecutors, and public trust on Taiwan judiciary system keeps falling down in the past 8 years.  Besides, Taiwan already turned to a "privacy hell" because prosecutors (and police) ignore Taiwanese human rights and Taiwan Constitution to access Taiwanese people communication records......?! (see below)       Local media Apple Daily, Liberty Times etc (11-30-2016): Taiwan president Tsai Ing-wen pronounced a death penalty on Taiwan's Justice system, Tsai also criticized (5-20-2016) that Taiwanese people don't trust the justice.   The deputy dean of Law School, National Cheng-Chi University, comments 5-2015) that the standard of judgments on the same matters varies from person to person all the time is the reason why Taiwanese people do not trust Taiwan's judiciary.
