Eighteen indicted in conscript’s death

BLAME:Hung Chung-chiu’s family said they do not blame the non-commissioned officers so much as the military officials who should bear the major responsibility

Lu, a conscript discharged on July 6 — the same day Hung was supposed to have been discharged — was the medical officer who treated Hung when he collapsed from heatstroke while in the brig. If any medical negligence is found, Lu will be prosecuted, Shih added.

The Taiwan Medical Association said it would provide every necessary assistance to Lu during the evaluation and praised the former medical officer for his professional judgment and his handling of Hung’s case despite a lack of data on the patient and insufficient medical equipment.
