Taipei, Sept. 4 (CNA) Dozens of Vietnamese migrant workers and labor rights activists protested in front of the National Police Agency (NPA) in Taipei on Monday over the shooting death of a Vietnamese worker on Aug. 31, demanding a thorough investigation of the case to determine if excessive police force was used.
The protesters shouted slogans and held placards that read “police violence” and “investigate excessive use of force,” and called for surveillance footages or other images of the shooting, if any, to be released.
The deceased Vietnamese worker, Nguyen Quoc Phi, was shot dead by a police officer in Hsinchu County, northern Taiwan on Aug. 31 after Nguyen allegedly attacked the authorities who tried to stop him from vandalizing and stealing from a car, according to the statement released by the NPA on Monday.
