Hung case indictments fail to fit the crimes

By Wu Ching-chin 吳景欽

The military prosecutors’ investigation into Hung’s death was concluded quickly. Perhaps this was done to demonstrate the efficiency of the prosecutors and ease public criticism. However, if prosecutors cannot determine the structural nature of the offense and only indict on minor charges, they will only invite further criticism.

Wu Ching-chin is an associate professor of law at Aletheia University.
