TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – National Taiwan University law professor Chen Chih-lung has
unveiled an alliance to “refuse eating excrement produced by Ting Hsin International,” reports said Saturday.
The move was the latest indignant reaction to the November 27 not-guilty verdict at the Changhua District Court for former Ting Hsin Chairman Wei Ying-chung, the businessman at the core of an adulterated cooking oil scandal uncovered last year.
The judges had seen “black” but said it was “white,” Chen said about the court ruling, adding it had moved him to stand up and speak out, because otherwise, people studying and practicing law would no longer be able to discern right from wrong.
The legal expert rejected the theory that the Changhua District Prosecutors Office had not worked hard enough on its charges, for which it had requested the court to sentence Wei to 30 years in prison. After the verdict, the prosecutors said they would file an appeal with the Taiwan High Court. [FULL STORY]
