For a long time, judicial system (prosecutors, judges) is 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 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.

        Taiwan's legislator politician (陳明文) involving a serious corruption case can predict the court judgment - "no guilty", which is serious injustice, and perhaps politics controlling judicial systems (政治染指司法之黑幕).  

  USA Country Reports on Human Rights practices, April  13, 2016

Taiwan's judicial system suffered from some corruption.  Although authorities made efforts to eliminate corruption and diminish political influence in the judiciary, some residual problems remained.  Some political commentators and academics also publicly questioned the impartiality of judges and prosecutors involved in high-profile and politically sensitive cases...Women’s groups reported that judicial authorities were sometimes dismissive of sexual harassment complaints.

         Taiwan's political culture is always good at challenging and overtaking judicial system, in this sort of political ecological environment, Taiwan certainly fail to have citizens knowing and obeying the laws.

            ● Taiwan is notorious on its scammers and fraud-groups all over the world, but Taiwan's Judiciary and Legislative institutions never have a sense of shame on this, and never have intention to stop this criminal actions by punishments, in contrary, Taiwan's judiciary kept catching and releasing those scammers again and again, moreover, Taiwan used this as an excuse to dispute and meddle with China, therefore, how can Taiwanese people believe Taiwanese government taking judiciary reform serious ??
            ps: BBC, 4-22-2016,
A recent diplomatic row between Taiwan and China has cast light on a massive international telecoms fraud problem.  It is said to involve thousands of scammers, some of them pretending to be government officials to extract money from victims.
