Fallout of Taiwanese military justice reform

Cdr. (ret) Chang Chi-hsin
As previously reported here, Taiwan did away with military trials last year following the exhaustion death of a soldier in disciplinary custody. As fallout of the change, a retired naval officer who was sentenced by a court-martial to life in prison for attempting to become a spy has been resentenced by a civilian court. His new sentence is confinement for six years. Commander Chang Chih-hsin had been director of the Political Warfare Office at the Naval Meteorological and Oceanographic Office.
