The Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office yesterday announced the indictment of
five anti-curriculum changes activists — Chen Po-yu (陳柏瑜), Yen Hsiao-ho (閻孝和), Peng Cheng (彭宬), Yin Juo-yu (尹若宇) and Tsai Ming-ying (蔡明穎) — on charges of obstruction of justice and coercion.
The office said that it has referred two adolescents, surnamed Chang (張) and Lin (林), to a juvenile court, and that it would not file charges against 22 remaining activists being investigated for breaking into and occupying the Ministry of Education compound, due to the ministry’s withdrawal of charges, insufficient evidence and the death of one defendant.
