I am almost finished with my research into the melamine news and health issue (which I will publish some time in the near future), but there is some worrysome degree of deterioration of human rights back home as I have just noticed on reading some of my favorite Taiwan blogs (such as http://michaelturton.blogspot.com/2008/11/fapa-statement-on-recent-arrests.html). So, I went into Taiwan's newspapers and discovered this article http://www.libertytimes.com.tw/2008/new/nov/2/today-o3.htm,
So the "trumpet" changed this author's previous thoughts that the former president Chen's case is coming to a conclusion, i.e. all necessary proofs of crime are complete by the prosecutors.
The "喇叭" (trumpet) I suppose is "Taiwan's media" because "trumpet" is like a "擴聲器", and I wonder why in Taiwan some prosecutors (in order to seek promotion?) must co-op with the media to investigate? Or should I say some prosecutors in Taiwan are led by the media's speculation to direct their investigations!
Mr. Chiou I-Jen may give people an impression that he looks mysterious and dressed strangely (out of tune with modern politician’s style), but his human rights like the rest of us should be respected. 邱義仁雖留給人的印象是神秘稀稀、穿著奇怪，但像我們每一個人的人權一樣， 都必須被尊重。
For any information, any news, any topic, I read from as many sources as possible and from as many languages as I can handle, and compare their accuracy, then I draw my own conclusion.
I tell my kids that they must develop a good study method by using all the textbooks and references (course aids in books or electronic devices) available, and this will help them in their life-long learning.
I guess these prosecutors in Taiwan had not learned their research techniques from young, or the system of recruitment for government employees in the justice department failed to pick-up the brightest graduates.
And some reporters in Taiwan lack professional ethics, resulting in either the media leads the investigation, or one is pronounced guilty before a court hearing 未審先判.
About the media ethics, I came across another article today, http://www.libertytimes.com.tw/2008/new/nov/2/today-o2.htm
I wish Taiwan's media and justice system will improve on their output quality so as to cathch up with Taiwan's proud and globally recognized good standard set by its IT products.
