In the prosecution & investigation gov., promotion by political loyalty (政治掛帥的封官圖) has already badly damaged our national civil service system (文官體制)

  FTV news (民視 ftvnews.com.tw/video/detail/EZGVKONcl4I  ), 2022-12-17: Taipei city mayor Ko: I still hope that the judiciary is the last line of defense of the country, so far it has not met this standard (希望司法是國家最後一道防線,到目前為止還沒有達到這個標準).  Expert:   Justice is not the last line of defense for social justice.  The judiciary has no way to convince Taiwanese people. All signs of judicial reform are gone. Prosecutors might be self-restricting (自我限縮) themselves depending who the suspect is (Varies from person to person).  The variables are too big for us to believe.  Many judges and prosecutors transfer their job to be a lawyer, rising the question that - is judging or investigation working well ? The current judges and prosecutors are their juniors, the field of judiciary still "respect" the ethics.  In today's Taiwan, the clients usually do not ask which lawyer is more capable or more experienced, but ask whether or not the lawyer is familiar with judges and prosecutors. They are all talking about relationships and connections! Taiwan's judicial reform will never work !   資深媒體人吳國棟
