The government is to continue efforts to enact sweeping judicial reform, President
Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said yesterday, adding that she would personally oversee that the proposed changes are implemented by requesting the Judicial Yuan and the Executive Yuan to report on their progress every six months.
Tsai addressed members of the National Congress on Judicial Reform upon its conclusion, where she outlined five main tasks for her government to set up timetables and take charge of judicial reform.
“The key to judicial reform lies in follow-up actions. I will closely monitor the timetable for the required work and will demand government ministries accelerate the pace and enhance the scope of judicial reform. We shall change the justice system into one the people can rely upon,” she said. [FULL STORY]
