    ★Words from Prosecutor General★Be capable of maintaining public power, and reinforcing the function of prosecution and a stable social order, so that a just and uncorrupted image of the prosecutor authority may be built up. Based on this idea, the Office presents this “Public Service White Papers,” expecting to upgrade our service quality, and fulfill our responsibility of protecting citizens’ rights. ★Our Major Tasks at the Moment★1. Effectively and thoroughly execute the “Action Plan for Crackdown on Black Money”:The Office has established the “Tainan Task Force, Black Money Investigation Center” on July 7, 2000, consisting of excellent prosecutors from the court of first and second instances, the Police and investigation authorities within its jurisdiction. The team is responsible for combating black money, eradicating corruption and investigating bribery at election. Team members are going all out to investigate cases legally and stringently. The team has been performing well, nd has won the trust and praise of the public. 2. Enhance case processing efficiency:All cases, no matter investigation, appeals, reconsideration, pleadings, applications for ruling of sentence, change of jurisdiction, military investigation, supplementary reconsideration, people’s complaints, exemption from compulsory labor and execution of sentence, are dealt with promptly without delay. 3. Stick to public prosecution practice:When prosecutors of the Office appear at the court, they are to make effective indictment. Before the court session, details of the case are read thoroughly, and the prosecutor of the court of first instance is contacted.

Strict enforcement of self-initiated impeachment:Eradicating the evil, uncovering hidden bad and preventing crimes are the responsibilities of prosecutors. Therefore, whenever parties related to a crime, people not involved in a crime, witnesses are found to be suspicious of committing crime, or when newspaper and magazine advertisements are found to be involved in a crime, name and address of the persons involved should be investigated immediately, and the cases should be referred to local district prosecutors’ office for further investigation and legal action. 6.
