New Power Party (NPP) Legislator Hsu Yung-ming (徐永明) yesterday said the Ministry of Justice had neglected its duty after 20 Taiwanese detained by the Malaysian government sent to Taiwan on Friday night were released on arrival.
Hsu accused the ministry of “deliberately taking zero action to collect evidence and misleading the public” into believing that fraud suspects — as Beijing had claimed — are not duly punished in Taiwan.
“Why is it that the ministry did not proactively collect evidence from Malaysian authorities from the beginning? This is not the first time that we have had this kind of case. Is ‘letting the suspects get away easily’ a reputation actually created by the ministry’s repeated passive reactions?” Hsu asked.
Malaysian authorities gave the evidence to Chinese authorities, Hsu said. [FULL STORY]
