The Changhua District Prosecutors Office said it will appeal over the Ting Hsin case after
which it was found not guilty by the Changhua District Court last weekend, reports said Monday.
Ministry of Justice (MOJ) Deputy Director Lin Hui-huang said during a question-and-answer session at the legislature in the morning that the ministry backs the Changhua prosecutors for an appeal, saying the verdict passed down by the district court has turned out far from expected.
On Friday, former Ting Hsin International chairman Wei Ying-chung and six other defendants were found not guilty by the court for their alleged role in the food safety scandals.
The prosecutors had been unable to prove that raw materials for oil imported from Vietnam were not suitable for human consumption, the court ruled. [FULL STORY]
