Officers of the law, breaking the law, because the “pay-off” is too hard, to, resist! Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
Twenty two police officers in Hsinbei City, Taoyuan, Hsinchu, were suspected of working with fifteen car sales representative, to find holes in the justice systems, in three years’ time, the officers had made the illegal profits of more than $47 million N.T.s total; the Hsinbei District Attorney’s Office charged all twenty-two police officers on encroachment, and one of the charged was a director of a local substation.
Based off of the traffic laws, if there are the speeding or other dangerous driving behaviors, the licenses are suspended for six months, but the rule also had, if the owner of the car didn’t have the plates on the cars, using other license plates, or still drove the cars while the license plates had been suspended, the police can find them, and retract the license plates.
The employees found the loopholes, that the owners of the vehicle can get the license plates again by reapplying, and get back on the roads again. Since 2018, a total of twenty-two officers didn’t impound the vehicles as they were supposed to, from taking the bribes, allowing the owners of the vehicles to get their cars from the pound, and get a brand new license plate without questions.
The investigation found, that the officers, Liao, and Chou took the bribes of $15,000N.T. and $2,000N.T., the rest of the twenty-two who were suspected didn’t have any valid evidence of bribe found, but, based off of the rental rates of the iRent, and other rents of average of $290N.T. an hour, they’d estimated that the officers had received the total of illegal bribes in the total of over $47 million N.T.s; of them, the officer, Rong from Sanchong Substation’s back up squad received the most in over $50 million N.T.s.
The D.A.’s office indicted the twenty-two officers on encroachment charges, the fifteen agents, as well as a mechanic, Jeng. In the investigations, there were twelve patrol officers who’d admitted to it, and the D.A. believed that they admitted to the crimes, and asked the courts to give them a fitting sentence.
After this, the Hsinbei Police Department immediately gave the matter to the city’s traffic accident unit to decide what was to be done, the transportation department’s highway unit amended the fines regulations last year, to prevent this matter already.
And so, this is still driven by money, with the cops, taking the bribes from the rental car agencies, because they don’t want to be fined, for not updating the license plates, or for not having the cars tuned up to the standards, so, they paid the police off, and, the police actually took the bribes too, because, money still speaks the loudest!
This is bad, if you can buy out the police, what else, can’t you do???
