★  US  state government - 2019 Trafficking in persons report, Jun. 2019  www.state.gov/reports/2019-trafficking-in-persons-report-2/taiwan/

As reported in the last five years, human traffickers subject foreign men and women to forced labor and sex trafficking in Taiwan, and traffickers subject local men and women to forced labor and local women and children to sex trafficking. Taiwan women and children are subjected to domestic sex trafficking, including as part of an increasing trend in which traffickers induce and take advantage of Taiwan and foreign women’s and children’s drug addictions to subject them to sex trafficking. Taiwan traffickers increasingly use the internet, smartphone apps, livestreaming, and other such online technologies to conduct recruitment activities, often targeting child victims, and to mask their identities from law enforcement.

Traffickers lure women from China and Southeast Asian countries to Taiwan through fraudulent marriages and deceptive employment offers for purposes of sex trafficking. Many trafficking victims are migrant workers from Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and to a lesser extent, individuals from China, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka.

According to activists for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights, violence against LGBT persons with HIV/AIDS was a problem, but instances of police pressure on LGBT-friendly bars and bookstores continued to decrease during the year. The police response to violence against LGBT persons with HIV/AIDS was adequate.
The National Police Administration (NPA) of the Ministry of Interior has administrative jurisdiction over all police units, although city mayors and county magistrates appoint city and county police commissioners. Civilian authorities maintained effective control over the NPA, and the authorities have effective mechanisms to investigate and punish abuse and corruption. There were no reports of impunity involving security forces during the year.

Police in Taiwan fired high-pressure water cannons on hundreds of demonstrators ( mostly were university students) who broke into the country's Cabinet,  
At least 174 people, including 119 police officers, were wounded as the police wielded wooden clubs and later used water trucks.  Demonstrators were injured and bloodied, some got concussions and bone fractures,  the protesters strongly condemn the violence against the unarmed, weaponless students.

Why this event happened:The nature of this matter is that all levels of society have different views as to the signing of the service trade agreement,  The China trade bill, which would allow cross-strait investment on dozens of service trades ranging from banking to funeral parlors, has touched deep roots of concern, including Taiwan’s own history of authoritarian rule and its uneasy relationship with China, an emerging giant that considers the island part of its own territory that must eventually be reunited. Some Taiwanese believe parts of the agreement are beneficial to Taiwan's future, but many are incensed by what they believe were procedural errors in passing the pact.    Opponents of the deal say it could harm Taiwan's economy, democratic system and national security.he content of the agreement was developed in 'black box' negotiations. The agreement was passed without proper procedure.

Taiwanese people won't know being listened until they were prosecuted, as for those people not being indicted, they will never know about this ....  Taiwanese people can not do anything about this nation's most serious - mandatory punishment, no one can help them, they are rejected by Taiwan's judiciary systems...

 <Apple Daily News> 1.15.2014

Taiwan's Legislature passed wiretap restrictions yesterday, but vice secretary general of the Judicial Reform Foundation expressed that this amendment works nothing for Taiwanese privacy protection in advance and remedy afterwards (該修正案對人民隱私權的事先保障與事後救濟都是空的), Taiwan should learn "four-eyes-principle" (sync. wiretapping by prosecutors and police with judge's approval together with telephone-service staff inside the machinery/equipment room, Chinese namely "同步監聽") of USA or Japan, Taiwan's current way to do it seriously harms Taiwanese privacy.

 <Apple Daily News> 1.16.2014 editorial
The legislature yesterday approved revisions to the Communication Security and Surveillance Act (通訊保障及監察法) to toughen the rules governing the use of wiretaps... previously, the prosecutors may keep listening someone even the legal case had already been closed, or the prosecutors may wiretap on a specific person and by the way listen other people in the same case... all these show their (prosecutors, police, investigation units) attitude of abusing power & playing the law.  This amendments immediately led to a rebound (opposition) by Taiwan's prosecutors, police, and investigation units...The Judicial Reform Foundation expressed : Taiwan's judiciary has not made any progress at all unless they avoid wiretapping mistakes by abolishing the watching center or attaching it to or under certain authority remaining neutral, and not allow accessing communication records unless they got the judges' approval...

latest news:   Taiwan police's prefect or ... problem  

  (1) Exclusive !!  police made a phony defendant's transcript document
 Songshan Precinet (松山分), Taipei City Police Department,
        detective Chen You-ren (
陳宥任) modified the defendant's report, by the detective's imagination, during initial questioning.



Criminal case doc. by Songshan police dept. to Taipei court, prosecutors office(2013.10.25)

Defendant's transcript report(2013.10.19)

Police's report changed suspect's (ps:defendant) words to be:

...(defendant) stated: ... I push her down by a chair... (故以椅子推倒被害人XXX)


Q (police asks): Have you ever held a chair against her chest and attacked her by your fist (椅子頂被害人胸口並以拳頭攻擊...)

A (defendant's answer-statement): ...I pull her by my hand... ( 我有用手拉她手臂請她離去...)


The police department changed both the detective's expression and the defendant's transcript report created a phony story.



  (2) Conceal transcript report (隱匿筆錄) !   detective Chen You-ren (陳宥任) again, and again ?!


Liberty Times,  Nov. 8, '12, ETtoday    http://www.libertytimes.com.tw/2012/new/nov/8/today-so5.htm

Detective Chen suspiciously concealed 2 models' transcript (daze rape by "wolf" Lee 李宗瑞) and even asked them to ignore prosecutor's subpoenas by phrases "it's hard for you to prove it's a sexual assaulting case, it's useless to attend prosecutors office, you don't need to be there !" , that leads to police investigation trouble, and more sexual assaults on innocent girls by that "wolf" Lee...... detective Chen explained he did not do this by intention, it's his faineancy and neglect of the duty.......     

(Chinese version: ...據週刊報導,警方最初追查李宗瑞被控迷姦小模姊妹花時,解姓目擊證人指證,曾見李把小模姊姊抬上計程車,他為此還和李打架;但北市刑大承辦偵查佐陳宥任製作筆錄後,卻未將筆錄移送檢方,法官因而無法收押李宗瑞。更扯的是,提告的小模姊妹花事後居然都不願出庭,檢方拘提兩女,妹妹還埋怨,當初不到庭,是因陳宥任說「妳這很難證明是性侵啦,去了也沒有(用),不用去啦!」檢方將徹查陳宥任員。


China Times 中國時報     Lee's embarrassing/compromising/erotic photo external-lost case

detective Chen you-ren and other 5 policemen attended on the court of Taipei prosecutors office and denied that they have something to do with  Lee's dirty photo external-lost case (media doubt those photo came from Taipei Criminal Investigation Division of Taipei City Police Dept. because photo background looks like its place...... )
Chinese version:
去年爆發富少李宗瑞涉嫌迷姦、偷拍淫照案後,網路一度流傳從電腦螢幕翻拍李宗瑞性愛淫照,由於拍攝地點疑為公部門辦公室,外界懷疑是承辦的台北市刑大流出,北檢主動分案偵辦。......   台北地檢署偵辦...以證人身分傳喚前台北市刑大偵五隊副隊長林宏銘、承辦警員陳宥任等5名警員到案,據了解,5人均...否認淫照外流與警方有關,檢方訊後請回。

   (3) Police leave some cases behind (吃案) !

  The China Times 中時電子報】  華夏經緯網  03/27/2007

All tricky ways Taiwan police leave cases behind (台灣警察吃案手法 大公開)

Former Taiwan vice Prime Minister (行政院副院長葉菊蘭)'s girl-cousin was abused/tortured several days by Taiwan's Mafia/Gang/Mob, this victim twice came to police dept. for help, but receive rejection for reason "personal debt problem"... Taiwan police attitude leads to bad guys' act in foolhardy manner '    


Police golden rule for survival is "foolish police don't ignore cases ", because performance evaluation will kill those "foolish" police, inspite of that heads of police reiterated they are strongly against this ...


There're too many tricky ways for police leaving cases behind ... e.g., police may accepts cases like robbery by motorbike, but they won't really access the case, or some police may try all means to persuade victims to ignore their cases, or even give some money by themselves to victims as compensation...

Some police may persuade victims to just put some case on record first, and promise do investigation soon, hence this case will not be in statistics report at that day, hence higher ranking officials won't give pressure to the police to investigate the case ...(事後再補辦正式報案手續後,被害人也取得報案三聯單)

 As for some cases like Traffic accidents Causing Bodily Harm, police may nicely persuade victims to reach an amicable settlement, or to back home first for a second thought ―  if they really want a suit-case in court? ... so that this case may not be in statistics within 3-5 months... 


 If victims of relatives-missing fail to bring direct evidence of being killed or kidnapped to police, they usually treat this kind of case as people missing, this way caused a female teacher's death by killing.   


Most police report cases of stolen motorbike as "license plate missing", if Taiwanese people encounter stealing cases or young kids hand in their cell-phones for bad-guys' threaten behavior, police usually will persuade victims "are you sure it's stolen? or you lost it by yourself?", "you may be accused by serious crime namely "Malicious Accusation"... so these cases won't be listed in police statistics.  


Many companies received bad-guy's threaten-letters a lot, most police will promise they will give warnings to bad guys, they definitely don't dare to touch you .... 

The Liberty Times   Oct. 3,   Police dept. ignore police's death case  

DPP legislator (吳宜臻) hold a press conference to accuse police officials don't want to access pension matter for his detective police who  "sudden died from overwork" (work 15 hour per day, 100 hours overtime one month before his sudden death), just because this matter may affect official's (樹林分局長官) promotion ...

 CTS (華視TV news)     

Police ignoring a case caused a 17 yrs old girl being killed 

A victim's father in Tainan accused police dept. ignored his report (his age 17 daughter experienced "abduct to kidnap" & being sexual assaulted 7 years ago), lead to his daughter's death by killing and sexual assaults, if police accessed his report at once, his daughter may have chance to be alive ....

  "Abuse the right of monitoring, what's the difference between Taiwan and "Police State" ! (濫權監聽 台灣與警察國家何異 )

   It's a major scandal in Taiwan's democracy history that the Special Prosecutors Unit listens Taiwan's parliament ....(特偵組監聽國會,成為台灣民主史上的重大醜聞)

   "The Problem of Policing Taiwan - Police Story"


... Till now many Taiwanese people still think Taiwan's police have prefect problem, corruption problem, "ignore cases (吃案)" problem, "colluding with Mafia/Gang interest groups" problem ...

    Last June a "police image" survey conducted by women foundation (<現代婦女基金會>), less than 10% people think Taiwan's police did a good job on "cracking criminal cases", "Eradicating vice", "defend crime in advance", 20% people totally dissatisfy Taiwan's police performance.

    The image of Taiwan's police:  38% - police prefect,  12% - cracking criminal cases , 25% - defend crimes in advance, 20% - attitude, obviously, police corruption, police shielding illegal cases, this kind of matters are Taiwanese people's first concern. 

   Besides, Taiwanese people don't accept police act against the law, there should be a clear line between police and bad guys.
