fairness during the Ma Administration has often been cited as an issue in the
fragility of Taiwan’s democracy. After 2008, many Democratic Progressive Party
officials have been targeted by the prosecutors’ office, under the Ministry of
Justice, seemingly based on political grounds. Even though most of the DPP
officials brought into legal system proved to be innocent at the end, the prolonged
processes have resulted in serious suffering of the individuals implicated.
This report, conducted by the Committee on Policy Research and Coordination of
the DPP, is a systematic effort in demonstrating the unfair and unjust nature
of the prosecution under the Ma Administration. For Taiwan democracy to be
refined or consolidated, the issue of judicial fairness must be addressed.
