Re: filming suspects in police stations
I’m interested in this question for academic reasons. Perhaps someone has some specific info.
Very commonly, suspects are filmed squirming under motorcycle helmets at the police stations, something that looks like “guilty until proven innocent” to many observers. A Taipei city council member told me that this is illegal, but that it is accepted and tolerated as a way for the police to project an image of strong law enforcement. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to ask details. There are many unethical practicese on Taiwan TV news, but I’m wondering if this one is or isn’t illegal. Or, perhaps the law the councillor was referring to was one open to interpretation.
