Pan Blue Officials are not the President. Being the corrupt Li Zhang of Alley 344 in Sanchong is not the same as being the corrupt President of the ROC.
The point about this share fraud is exactly that CSB is suspected of being involved. Do you really think this guy who is a mere dumbwit doctor in a country full of dumbwit doctors got involved in this without telling anyone, including his wife? Do you really think the reason Chao is involved has to do with something other than his father-in-law being the president? Do you think the brains behind this just drew names out of a hat? There is justifiable suspicion that CSB’s wife was involved in this, using Chao and his family (etc) as names. Where on earth did he get access to all that money, and how on earth did he think he was going to get away with it? The questions the prosecutor needs to ask are:
“Beforehand, did CSB give Chao any assurances of assistance if he were caught? Was there any understanding reached that the husband of the president’s daughter could never be allowed to go to jail? How could such huge amounts of money change hands without alerting Chao’s wife? Why, if alerted, did Chao’s wife not tell her father about what her husband was up to? If she did, did CSB attempt to get Chao out of trouble? How did Chao get involved with the bankers? Was Chao nominated by CSB’s wife, or did he dream this thing up on his own? Does Chao have any history of securities fraud or other major crime, theft, deception? Why now? How did the bankers know that when they approached Chao (if that’s what happened) that he would not immediately report them to the police? Or the president? Who assured them Chao would be compliant or willing, even?”
These questions will never be asked. Chao will get a fine. If I had dunnit, I would be going to jail for around 10 years. One law for the poor, many laws for the rich. Obviously some unimportant clerk will get a huge sentence - this is the sort of justice system we have in Taiwan. And it’s fine by me. I know that because I am poor, not to be doing shit like this. Fat doctor boy thought he was untouchable, and maybe he is, we’ll see, but he will more or less get away with it. He knows he’s not going to jail.
No amount of spin of trivialisation can deflect the serious nature of these accusations. It really is supremely irrelevant to say “Oh the other guys do it too”. We’re not five-years old. This is not the school playground. CSB is supposed to be the president of a country, not the milk monitor. No, numbskull, your millionnaire wife cannot use SOGO vouchers; no, your wife cannot give her portfolio of stocks over to a green friend of yours to invest in the green companies of other green friends of yours because, thicko, that smacks of insider dealing. No, you son-in-law can’t trade stocks without asking the presidential office first because of the danger of accusations of insider dealing. No, your wife cannot organise the purchase of worthless shares knowing that there is a government bail-out that will more than quadruple their value. No, not even if she uses other people’s names. No. Because you are the president. Being the president means more than standing up on a podium in a bad suit and talking childish gibberish in a Lee Deng Hui accent. It means leading the country, providing vision, taking big decisions. And your most important decision so far? To do less. When faced with a crisis I curl up in a little ball and cry for my mommy.
How easy must it be to get a law degree at Tai Da, eh? You see all these tossers walking about full of themselves because they went to Tai Da? Can’t wait until I meet another Tai Dai lawyer. On this evidence Tai Da is crap. How on earth did a retard like CSB end up with a law degree? I mean he can hardly manage a sentence. The George Bush of Asia.
