Horrible Judicial system in Taiwan !

For a long run, Taiwan's judiciary was one of "corrupt"/"extremely corrupt" institutions in Taiwan ――  Major media Apple Daily, The Liberty Times etc,11-30-2016, United Daily 2-27-2018: 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.   Academics and commentators had publicly questioned the impartiality (e.g., Non-external intervention of the judiciary, fair trials) of Taiwan's  judges and prosecutors, National Chung Cheng university's survey (head-page of the Liberty Times, 2-23-2016) found: more than 84% Taiwanese people don't believe judges, 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.    There're 2 widely known sayings : (1)Taiwan's judiciary, takes different standards, just like the moon's shape, changing all the time... ref to <The China Times>, Opinion, 4-15-2017(2) "Taiwan's court system is a "business" run or owned by KMT - <Nationalist Political Party>" (法院國民黨開的。」), this saying has been regarding as "very close to the fact" (ref. to wikipedia).    The deputy dean of Law School, National Cheng-Chi University, comments 5-2015) that the standard of Taiwanese judges 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 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.
