China Times, editorial, 2022-3-24:
Law Firm (taking the case about President Tsai I. W.'s doctoral dissertation) was being searched by the prosecutor ! The rights of lawyers have been violated!  A press conference urges Taiwan's prosecutors not to cross the red line, not to infringe upon the democracy, human rights, and rule of law.  Judicial reform is one of the loudest slogans since President Tsai I. W. took office 6 years ago.  The biggest change so far of the judicial reform is that political correctness becomes the most important thing in handling legal cases.  The "corruption & smuggling cigarettes" case (chinatimes.com/newspapers/20210612000418-260106?chdtv) by Taiwan Presidential Office's national safety guard turning into a "overbought" case is an example.   (chinatimes.com/opinion/20220323004844-262101?chdtv)

The Apple Daily,  Dec. 7, 2020, (https://tw.appledaily.com/forum/20201207/XDWVJS4BOBGYFHBWI23KR77OEI/ 林孟皇): Taiwan's judges and prosecutors' always "very low"  misdeeds in the past (素行不良的行徑) are hard to find similar case in advanced legal countries; furthermore, recently some famous attorneys also violated work ethics, the overall performance by law people certainly fails to win public trust.

      Taiwan's judiciary spends lots of money on advertising themselves, but, the truth us Taiwan's justice always made a detour whenever encountering the power and the rich people. (司法砸錢宣傳 遇權貴卻轉彎)   The Supreme Court (最高法院大法庭) has many cases to solve, but no one wants to touch sensitive issues.

●  The United Daily, 7-14-2020,  udn.com/news/story/7339/4699302
Taiwan's president has never talked about a
nti-corruption, in recent years, the prosecutors and investigation gov. have not solved any big corruption cases, unlike lots of crack-downs in old days, instead, they focus on New National Security cases.  No wonder Taiwan president insists abolishing Special Investigation Division (SPD) .

●  The Liberty Times,  7-1-2020  ( Avoid judicial monsters )  :  The main reason that the public do not trust the justice is lacking of external supervision (外部監督力量) and hence quite many controversial legal judgments were out therehttps://news.ltn.com.tw/news/society/paper/1383385

  The China Times, 5-27-2020 : The public trust on Taiwan's prosecutors was suffered severe injuries from the Minister's "guides" and "leads"  (部長下指導棋重傷檢察公信力)

       The ruling party DPP has been more "authoritarian" than the way "authoritarian" government in old days was, no wonder the first thing the public have not satisfied with is the judicial reform.  Many question the judicial system was reduced to be the government's tool to strengthen monitoring the public, and many worries, their political opponents   (過去四年許多作為卻比過去威權更威權,立法、執法上不斷加強對人民的監控司法不斷被質疑淪為掌權者工具 司法改革卻是人民最不滿意的重中之重 )
