People First Party presidential candidate James Soong’s (宋楚瑜) advocacy of transitional justice is “shameless,” veteran activist and independent presidential candidate Shih Ming-te (施明德) said yesterday, adding that Soong was a former “hired thug” of authoritarian regimes.

“Where in the world does a perpetrator say that he would effect transitional justice and reconciliation,” Shih said, adding that Soong had invited “muckraking” with his promise to establish a presidential office for “transitional justice” if elected, which would investigate unresolved cases from the Martial Law era.
