The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) caucus is seeking to make a draft act on transitional justice into law this legislative session, despite objections from the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) and the People First Party (PFP).
The DPP caucus’ draft legislation for promoting transitional justice passed the legislature’s Judiciary and Organic Laws and Statutes Committee in June last year, and the caucus will schedule a further review of the draft act in a plenary session on Friday, DPP caucus whip Ker Chien-ming (柯建銘) said yesterday.
The DPP is to make the scheduling tomorrow during a cross-caucus negotiation called by Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全).
The New Power Party (NPP) has proposed to rename the draft legislation as “the act on implementing transitional justice,” NPP caucus whip Hsu Yung-ming (徐永明) said.
