Taipei, Dec. 7 (CNA) Taiwanese film director Doze Niu (鈕承澤) was questioned at a police station in Taipei on Friday morning after he was accused of sexually assaulting a female worker on the set of a new film he is shooting.
Surrounded by reporters after giving his side of the story to police officers at Da’an Precinct, Niu said he would cooperate with the investigation by police and prosecutors and hoped that he would be judged fairly.
The director complained, however, that he has already been tried in the court of public opinion outside the judicial system.
“I’ve been sentenced to the death penalty. Doze Niu is already dead,” he said of how the public has perceived the case. [FULL STORY]
