Lien shooting questions remain

The Sean Lien shooting incident which occurred about three weeks ago has been highly scrutinized by pro-independence groups. A press conference held today by the Taiwan Society said that key evidence in case hasn't been publicly released yet.

Taiwan Society Secretary General Luo Chih-cheng (羅致政) said "there are four major issues that haven't been made public.

"First, making the video tape of the campaign rally for that evening and other related evidence public. Second, making the X-ray photos and other related medical records public. Third, having a government official step down and take responsibility for the shooting incident. Fourth, to follow the same example as the infamous '319 incident' and assemble an investigation team for the shooting incident."

The Banciao prosecutor's office to date has only submitted one report regarding the case emphasizing that it was not staged and there was only one gun, one bullet, one dead, and one injured.

"The shooting incident lacks information for the public and the public is still in murky waters regarding the incident," said Taiwan Society President Wu Hsu-ming.

According to Eastern Taiwan Society President Hsu Wen-yi, the German made semi-automatic handgun used by the suspect in the shooting couldn't have been the same model handgun used to shoot Lien. The model depicted would have created greater damage to the facial tissue and skull. Hsu made a requisition for the whereabouts of the bullet which had passed through Sean Lien's temple, and Hsu had even brought a skull to demonstrate how the bullet would have punctured Lien's skull, showing a visual example of what would have happened if the bullet of the pistol had passed through.
