Tainan solidarity
Tainan City Mayor William Lai's post on his Facebook page expresses solidarity for the late writer, Lin Yi-han, a Tainan-born citizen haunted by an alleged rape by her cram school tutor on Thursday, May 5. Lai named the city government's efforts in the aftermath of her suicide, such as imposing stringent regulations on cram school tutors' names and installing a system that would prevent future cases from occurring. Lai's post attracted criticism for making such a late statement -- a week after the news of Lin's suicide broke.
