The Taipei District Court on Friday found activist Hung Chung-yen (洪崇晏) and three others guilty of insulting a public official or office during a protest in 2014 that led to scuffles with law enforcement officers.

The protest came on the heels of the Sunflower movement after Hung and other campaigners circulated messages on social media calling for people to “walk by” the Taipei Chungcheng District First Police Precinct, one block from the Legislative Yuan Building, on April 11, 2014.

Hung was sentenced to 55 days in prison.

The court found him not guilty of violating provisions of the Assembly and Parade Act (集會遊行法).

Hsiao Nien-cheng (蕭年呈) was found guilty on two counts of offenses of obstructing an officer in discharge of duties and given a 80-day prison term.    [FULL  STORY]
