TAIPEI, Taiwan — The conveners of a national conference on judicial reform said Monday that the pardoning of ex-President Chen Shui-bian and the abolition of the death penalty would not be up for discussion.
The conference’s deputy convener, Chiu Hei-yuan (瞿海源), said the first conference would largely focus on aggregating issues from private organizations and society.
Chiu made the announcement at a press conference with fellow deputy convener, judicial Yuan President Hsu Zhong-li (許宗力).
The conference is being set up by the Presidential Office and comes after a campaign pledge by President Tsai Ing-wen to reform a judicial system that has long been perceived as unfair to ordinary people and partial to the rich. [FULL STORY]
