Compensation awarded in Taiwan draftee's death

Taipei Times reports:
The Taiwan High Court yesterday upheld an earlier ruling that army personnel were responsible for the death of Hung Wen-pu (洪文璞), a conscript who committed suicide after being bullied, and said that Hung’s parents should receive NT$2.86 million (US$94,483) in compensation from Army Command Headquarters. 
The compensation was increased from the NT$1.97 million ordered in the first ruling at the district court. 
However, yesterday’s ruling can be appealed.
