   USA Country Reports on Human Rights practices,  2021-3-30: the authorities generally respected judicial independence and impartiality. Some political commentators and academics, however, publicly questioned the impartiality of judges and prosecutors involved in high profile, politically sensitive cases.

   USA Country Reports on Human Rights practices at 3-11-2020: Some political commentators and academics,  publicly questioned the impartiality of judges and prosecutors involved in high profile, politically sensitive cases.  Judicial reform advocates pressed for greater public accountability, reforms of the personnel system, and other procedural improvements.
USA Country Reports on Human Rights practices at 3-13-2019 and 4-20-2018 both pointed out that Taiwan's justice ministry was insufficiently independent and conducted politically motivated investigations of politicians. 

 Taiwanese prosecutor said a dizzy, sleepy, disabled elderly lady (my mom aged about 90, having hospital's medicines which may cause dizzy) can stand independently during sleeping time in the very late evening , and the care-giver getting her up unstable and immediately running away which resulted in the elder's falling down is not against the laws.

 In the US, the house-owner victim has full right to gun shoot an unwanted intruder (force permissible to home-invaders) , but in Taiwan, you will be charged by criminal laws if pushing the intruder out  by naked hands. ... see

  The chef kept sniffing at me, a foreigner proved this. In Oscar film "Parasite", sniffing is very offensive and can trigger a killing.

A chef shouted "the exit is out there ! the toilet is out there !!" to me (didn't ask him) in the presence of large number of customers in a 5 star hotel restaurant, but the prosecutor said it's not an offense (crime of public insult, defamation, which is similar to American Laws around libel & slander)    case in English,   in Chinese




  The accused, a server of Taiwan's 5 star hotel restaurant, repeatedly sniffed loudly at two customers (my families) in public.
ictionary of Oxford, Cambridge,  Collins: "sniff at " expresses contempt; and a world famous American brand 5 star hotel should well train its servers not to do this.  Therefore, it should be an intentional offense  (crime of defamation or public insult, deliberate humiliation).    Furthermore,  this case, most likely, is part of an accomplice structure, or systematic crimes, political oppressions upon me because it has happened a lot of places else.  Ignoring witness testament (testify the crime) and other evidences, not summoning the defendant to the court, the chief prosecutor and two prosecutors concluded the criminal case "not to be  prosecuted" merely by looking at the defendant's one second "smile" on the DVD.

  public insult in Taiwan vs. public insult in Hong Kong : The suspects kept splashing lots of dirt at front of my home, and the janitor "suspected to be accomplice" having the duty to clean it but ignored cleaning it for nearly one year.  Taiwan prosecutor jumps to close the case (簽結) without entering investigation process.

  The accused wants to borrow money from me, in the "IOU" she wrote " brought $2000 for my boss"  instead of "borrow $2000 from my boss" by not-clear-enough handwriting, therefore I was fooled in the first place . 

the accused's mother language is English, and graduated from senior high school, she suppose not make this error, and it should be a  clever trick planned in advance to make creditor to be debtor.

The suspect attempted to commit fraud, but Taiwan prosecutor said it is not a <attempted fraud>, nor a fraud.

  The Taiwan state machine was accused as "political persecution" by me with proofs (American friend says Taiwan FBI is investigating me, my "political persecution in Taiwan " has been ranked top on all world best search engines for years, but the government fails to respond that, etc ).
  Taiwan prosecutor jumped to an end "nothing to do with crime" without conducting any investigations.  The history might tell Taiwan is a big liar.




 Ignoring warnings, the unwanted intruder repeated trespassing into living place in sleeping time.  But the chief prosecutor concluded it not a crime of home invasion (criminal trespassing) and burglary.   A simple case takes nearly 2 years to make conclusion !


The foreign laborer stuffed lots of fish-bones and skins etc down into pipe line in the sink, then the air condition was not working.  The the chief prosecutor says it is not illegal !   in English




Horrible legal systems in Taiwan
