Political violence divides nation

By Paul Lin 林保華

If Taiwanese politics are to develop normally, the pan-blue and pan-green camps must stop their fighting and temporarily put aside arguments over unification with China versus independence. They should investigate these serious incidents of political violence. Why was DPP caucus whip Ker Chien-ming’s (柯建銘) telephone wiretapped for two years over a case involving NT$200,000, but assassination attempts and shootings are left unresolved?

Paul Lin is a political commentator.
