Taipei, Nov. 12 (CNA) The Retired Police Officers Association launched a protest Tuesday over a court ruling that requires the state to pay compensation to 10 people who were injured during the 2014 Sunflower Movement protests.
The Taipei District Court ruled in October that the city's Police Department must pay NT$1.11 million (US$36,174) in total damages to 10 protesters, who suffered serious injuries when police forcibly removed them from the Executive Yuan complex during the 2014 demonstrations.
In a statement released Monday, the association said the ruling was politically motivated and unacceptable.
Those who broke the law have been raised above those authorized to enforce it, the association said. [FULL STORY]
