Yesterday’s APPLE DAILY, (link? www.appledaily.com.tw) showed photos of a doctor allegedly raping his female patient on the examination table, four photos, graphic (NOT FOR WORK VIEWING). Front page. Apparently, these shots came the woman’s secret video of the act.
Today, the Taipei Times dishes more: “Prosecutors defend themselves over alleged rapist’s bail”, noting that "The Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office yesterday responded to criticism that it was too lax in detaining dangerous criminals, thereby risking them escaping justice, saying that they had to act according to the law.
“We can not detain a person just because we believe that he is dangerous,” said Lin Bang-liang spokesman for the Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office.
The office came under fire after a local Chinese-language newspaper report on the basil releases of Dr. Hsu Kuo-bang (許國邦). Hsu is a well-known gynecologist who is suspected of raping at least four women during medical examinations.
Hsu has been a wanted fugitive from January until Tuesday when he was arrested after being pulled over in a police roadside car check.
He was later transferred to the Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office…but after interrogation was released on Wednesday on bail of NT$150,000.
NOTE: The good doctor will probably now flee the country, end up practicing in L.A., and never see justice here in Taiwan.
What are the odds?
