Man Suspected of Abusing Legislator Arrested 林姓男友涉施暴高嘉瑜 檢警搜索拘提

Legislator Kao Chia-yu's boyfriend surnamed Lin was arrested on Dec. 1, and prosecutors confiscated objects including his phone and flash drives.


Suspect Surnamed Lin: “(Why did you use violence against the legislator? Would you like to explain?) No, no. (Are there intimate videos?)”

The man denies committing any crimes when faced with questions from reporters. He is the boyfriend surnamed Lin of Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Kao Chia-yu, who has been accused of physically assaulting her and restricting her movements. He was arrested by the police on Dec. 1 at a hotel in New Taipei City's Banqiao District.

Nieh Chung, Dep. Chief Prosecutor, New Taipei District Prosecutors Office: “The main reason why an emergency search warrant was issued and the defendant was detained is due to the urgent nature of this case. We wanted to prevent him from destroying evidence and fleeing due to the widespread media coverage of this case.”

On Nov. 30, Kao, accompanied by her lawyer, filed a report at a local police station. Prosecutors then launched an investigation. They determined Lin was suspected of crimes such as forcible detention and coercion, and there was sufficient evidence. They asked the court to issue a search warrant and arrest warrant on the night of Nov. 30. Prosecutors say the arrest went smoothly and took less than half an hour. The suspect's phone and flash drives were seized.

Nieh Chung, Dep. Chief Prosecutor, New Taipei District Prosecutors Office: “According to the statement of the person who filed the complaint, who is the victim, these flash drives and phone may contain some intimate videos or images. That's why we seized them.”

Lin's phone and other possessions are thought to contain intimate images of Kao and other women, so prosecutors targeted them for confiscation. They will be handled confidentially and will not be leaked to anyone. Prosecutors are still trying to determine if there are other victims. The case is being investigated for the crimes of injury, forcible detention, coercion, and offenses against privacy.

 

 

記者 vs. 林姓嫌犯:「(為什麼要對議員動粗?要不要解釋一下?) 沒有。沒有。(是不是有拍不雅影片?)」

記者問林姓嫌犯為什麼要對議員動粗,林嫌回應「沒有、沒有」,記者再問還有拍不雅影片,無論媒體怎麼問,這名男子雙手合十,堅決否認犯行,他就是涉嫌對民進黨立委高嘉瑜動粗,還爆出限制人身自由的林姓男友,1日被警方上銬,從板橋的飯店拘提到案。

新北地檢署襄閱主任檢察官聶仲表示:「最主要會採取比較緊急的狀況,緊急的搜索,以及這個拘提的動作,最主要就是避免因為媒體的大幅的報導,導致證據的湮滅,還有被告逃亡。」

11月30日,高嘉瑜在律師陪同下,前往派出所報案,檢方也主動分案偵辦,認定林姓男子還涉嫌私行拘禁、強制等罪,犯罪嫌疑重大,因此,在當天晚上,向法院聲請搜索票和拘票,檢方表示,拘提過程平和,半小時內,就將嫌犯拘提到案,並查扣手機、隨身碟等物品。

聶仲指出:「是依照這個告訴人,也就是這個被害人的指述,認為這些這個隨身碟或手機裡面,可能會有一些私密的影像或照片,這個部分我們暫時先予以扣押。」

由於林姓嫌犯手機等物品,疑似有高嘉瑜和其他女性的私密影像,檢方強調,針對扣案物,會以密件方式彌封處理,並不得向任何人洩漏,還有再勘驗,是否有其他人受害。'全案將朝傷害、私行拘禁、強制、妨害秘密等罪嫌偵辦。
