Fu Jen Catholic University gave College of Social Sciences dean Hsia Lin-ching (夏林
清) a lenient punishment by suspending her for one year for her malfeasance in handling an alleged sexual assault on campus, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Rosalia Wu (吳思瑤) said at the legislature in Taipei yesterday.
The university handed down the punishment late last month.
Hsia allegedly tried to cover up an alleged rape by blaming the victim, a psychology major surnamed Wu (巫), before putting the coed on a “show trial” during a discussion attended by department of psychology faculty and students.
Hsia openly accused the victim and her boyfriend, surnamed Chu (朱), of “defaming” the department of psychology by posting on Facebook about the college’s handling of the incident, saying that the sexual assault was a result of “lust” shared by Wu and the alleged rapist, a student surnamed Wang (王).
