A Kaohsiung District Court prosecutor was detained and kept incommunicado on suspicion he forced a female witness involved in a case under his jurisdiction to have sex with him on two occasions, a judge said this week. The judge ruled that Prosecutor Wu Chieh-jen's (吳傑人) alleged behavior was punishable by a jail sentence in excess of five years. The prosecutor's office of the district court issued a public apology for a member whose behavior "has brought shame upon all prosecutors and tainted the image of judicial authorities." In Taipei, Minister of Justice Shih Mao-lin (施茂林) said he was appalled by Wu's alleged conduct, which he vowed to "severely punish."
