Women are once again, mistreated, LIKE WHORES in the armed services here, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
The former major general commander, Wen-Cheng Yang was accused of molesting a young female officer four times, the army courts, as well as the Highest Courts of Taiwan all believed, that Yang had done wrong by the rules of the army, used his status of power, to sexually molest his subordinate, found him guilty, and sentenced him to one year, two months, but he can pay a fine, without serving any real jail time. The case can still be appealed.
Wen-Cheng Yang entered into the armed services eight years ago, he graduated from the military school in 1980, is also the younger brother of the legislator of the KMT, Li-Huan Yang; after the incident, he received one major reprimand, and was transferred to an executive position, as a board member of the army, and was alleviated of duty early.
The victim, back in August of 2012, because she was there, to do the reports of her area of work, Yang caressed her left breast; and, not long thereafter, Yang bear-hugged her, and kissed her on the lips, stuck his hand into her panties, said, “I want to see if you have any pubic hairs, if you’re clean shaven, it would be great.” On the evening of October 16th, Yang used the same measures, and sexually molested the woman again, he’d committed the crimes of sexual molestations a total of four times.
The victim was only twenty-one years old, at first, she’d complied with him, without wanting to, feared, that if she’d come out to the open, nobody would believe her, that she might be reprimanded, for not following the orders of her superior, and had only complained of the events to her close friends, and she’d had a melt down outside her sleeping quarters, “I can’t take it anymore!”, the victim felt that she didn’t do right by her boyfriend, and asked for a break up, and her boyfriend held her tightly, and they cried together.
Later on, the victim had finally had it, told the protections unit in the army about it, and, the court martial case was started, and Yang was prosecuted.
Yang denied the allegations, claimed that he did touch the female subordinate’s forehead with his lips, his cheeks, but he couldn’t recall each and every time clearly; and that back then, his intentions were to encourage her, to console the victim, and he’d used socially acceptable manners to touch the woman. Yang claimed to have been set up by the female subordinate.
The military courts believed, that Yang is ranked higher, and didn’t uphold a higher standard of behaviors, had multiple times sexually molested his female subordinate, and after he was taken in, had tried to avoid the responsibilities of his own behaviors, and had not settled with the victim, but the military courts took into considerations, that the woman was willing to forgive him, Yang was sentenced to one year two months in prison, which he could pay a fine, and not serve the time. Yang went for an appeal, and because the court martial cases were ruled as regular criminal acts, the High Courts in Taiwan, after reviewing over the case, agreed with the rulings of the military courts, threw back Yang’s appeal.
And so, here, you STILL have a man, in a status of power, forcing himself onto his female subordinate, and this, is power rape, and because the victim in these cases usually are too scared to speak up and out, that, is why they keep on being victimized over, over, AND over again, and, the reprimand or punishment this army officer received, was still TOO light if you ask me!
