Police to question 41 more over Cabinet HQ storming

TAIPEI -- Police will summon 41 more people for questioning Monday over the March 23 storming and occupation of the Executive Yuan complex that riot police managed to disperse within hours.

Police said 97 people are suspected of damaging public property after protesters jumped the barbed-wire barricades of the Cabinet headquarters. So far, 56 people have been questioned in connection with the illegal activities.

The removal of the protesters in the early hours of March 24 left 174 people injured, according to official figures, of which 119 were police officers.

Police said one officer has been accused of excessive violence when removing protesters and they will look into the matter.

Let us hope that justice would not be hijacked and held hostage like the legislative yuan. Being labeled as a "student" does not mean one has immunity to do illegal acts. Justice should be meted out fairly and equally, rich or poor, the powerful or helpless, students or professionals, politicians and authorities. No one should be above or below the law. Forced entry (like the incident in Kaohsiung of the politician chiu yi) vandalism, destruction of property, theft, causing injuries to persons in authority are all prosecutable criminal acts. Leniency leads to more chaos and violence and more crimes. let us wait and see if real justice still exists in Taiwan.
