The Prosecutors' Reform Association is a non-political group, a group of state prosecutors working to reform the Taiwanese judicial system. The association was established to empower prosecutors and give them more room to strive for independence In May 1998, a group of prosecutors nationwide announced the establishment of the Prosecutors' Reform Association, and the main figure of the association is Eric Chen, who was then Shihlin District prosecutor at that time. The association was founded at a time when the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) government was widely believed to be manipulating prosecutors to keep them from indicting of investigating government officials.
The spokesman of this Association right now is Mr.Chen Chih-ming (陳鋕銘). One of the founders of Prosecutors' Reform Association,Prosecutor Eric Chen (陳瑞仁), made his mark on history when he announced on Friday the indictment of first lady Wu Shu-jen (吳淑珍) on corruption charges -- the first time ever in Taiwan's history that an immediate member of the first family has ever been charged.
