When Ma was the Justice Minister he was the one that refused to sign the death warrant for the Hsihchih 4. That was a very troubling case with no clear cut evidence. Those 4 have again been sentenced to death I believe, but they are not dead yet.

Ma is against capital punishment. They will likely stay in jail a very long time the ones currently on death row. Much like it is in the USA. A lot of the deathrowers die in prison before they are executed.

The philippina apparently did a preplanned murder in a very cold calculated way and lets not forget the victim (the one that was murdered) here. If she did that, she deserved the death penalty. But , she will probably spend 2 decades in jail and then be released on humanitarian grounds and sent back to the philippines. And probably banned from Taiwan for life. Im sure she will be in no hurry to return .

somethings fishy about this story, I think either she had help or its a man who did it.
13 centimeters deep, and multiple stab wounds suggests its personal.
Money may have been a bonus, but the motive was not about monetary gain.
but then again we'd have to see the autopsy report

Stumbled upon this thread and had no recollection or wasn't viewing the site around that time.

Anyway, here is an update from 3 years ago.

High Court overturns death penalty for Filipino woman Armia Menecia Panaglima

Taiwan High Court overturns death penalty for Filipino woman

By DPA - May 4, 2009

Taipei - The Taiwan High Court on Monday overturned a district court's death penalty for a Filipino woman, giving her a life sentence for killing a Taiwanese woman.

'We changed the death sentence to a life term for Armia Menecia Panaglima because the killing was an accident, and was not premediated,' High Court spokesman Wong Ching-chen told reporters.

Armia, 40, was silent during the court hearing. After she was told by an interpreter that her death sentence had been changed to life sentence, she said 'thank you' to the judge, according to TV reports.

Relatives of the victim, Chiu Mei-yun, 48, were angry about the high court's ruling and vowed to appeal.

'They think there are diplomatic factors in the change of the ruling because the Philippines has abolished the death penalty, so Manila put pressure on Taiwan to give Armia a lighter sentence,' Kaohsiung City Councillor Chen Mei-chuan told reporters.

'They told me they will appeal the ruling,' she added.

Last week, Armia's family members held a news conference in Manila, urging President Gloria Arroyo to apeal to Taiwan to spare Armia the death penalty, because the Philippines has abolished the death penalty.

'But Chiu's family members claim that Armia committed the crime in Taiwan, so she should be tried under Taiwan's law,' Chen said.

Armia killed Chiu, a job broker for foreign teachers in Kaohsiung, southern Taiwan, during a fight on September 12, 2007.

Link doesn't seem to go to the article, or I'd leave a few comments myself. :D

For some reason... I just spent an hour reading all of this, up until page 16 or so, until I realised it was from years ago. :wall:

What did I say? She will get to serve near twenty years in taiwan and then deported and banned for life.

Taiwan is moving away from executions. It wants to better its international image.

Must be getting more difficult to find someone to put a woman down on the ground and shoot her in the back of her head, thank God.

Executions are carried out by handgun shooting aimed at the heart from the back, or aimed at the brain stem under the ear if the prisoner consents to organ donation. The execution time used to be 5AM, but was changed to 9PM in 1995 to reduce officials' workload. It was changed again to 7.30PM in 2010.[14] Executions are performed in secret: nobody is informed beforehand, including the condemned. The execution chamber is located in the prison complex. The condemned is brought to the chamber by car, and would pay respects to the statue of Ksitigarbha located outside the chamber before entering. Before the execution, the prisoner is brought to a special court next to the execution chamber to have their identities confirmed and any last words recorded. They are then brought to the execution chamber and served their last meal (which includes a bottle of kaoliang).[14] The condemned is then injected with strong anaesthetic to leave him or her completely senseless. They are then placed flat on the ground face down and shot. The executioners would then burn hell bank notes for the deceased before carrying away the corpse.[14] It is customary for the condemned to place a NT$500 or 1000 banknote in their leg irons as a tip for the executioners.[14]

Not to mention the tragedy of being offered that awful pigswill Kaoliang as their last drink.

Yes. This is why we have a rule against gravedigging.
