Kao Hopes Judge Can Impose Heaviest Sentence on Lin 遭施暴首出庭對質 高嘉瑜:盼法官判最重刑

Legislator Kao Chia-yu appeared in court for the first time for the abuse case. She met with her ex-boyfriend Lin Ping-shu face to face during a cross-examination.


Lin Ping-shu, who is currently being prosecuted for allegedly physically abusing Legislator Kao Chia-yu, was escorted by the police from his custody detention to his court hearing. This is the first time that the New Taipei District Court summoned Kao to testify in court.

Kao Chia-yu, Legislator (DPP): “It's very torturous for me to think about it or face it again. It's very painful, but I have to be brave to face it. Because I think that the gods gave me this mission to deal with such a bad person. I don't want him to get away with it.”

She admitted that this feels like being injured again, but Kao emphasized that she still had to stand up bravely and not conduct isolated interrogation. She wanted a face-to-face cross-examination with Lin and hopes the judge will punish him severely and impose the heaviest sentence. Lin has been charged with eight counts of crime, but did not plead guilty to all of them. The cross-examination will clarify whether he committed physical injury, detained Kao against her will, secretly photographing her naked, or even intimidating her with such private photos.

Chen Ting-hsin, Lin's Lawyer: “The prosecutor subpoenaed Legislator Kao to testify. Legally, she's a hostile witness to us. But I think today we will of course question her on the stand, which will also help to clarify the real situation of the case.”

Not only did Kao testify in court, but two of Lin's assistants were also summoned to appear. Lin's lawyer responds that all three were subpoenaed by the prosecution, but he will also interrogate Kao on the stand to clarify the facts and context of events. 

 

 

 

因為涉嫌對立委高嘉瑜動粗,林秉樞被檢方起訴後,在押中的他,1日坐上警備車,再次被借提到法院開庭。不過,這回新北地院更首次傳喚高嘉瑜,到庭作證說明。

民進黨立委高嘉瑜表示:「如果要再去回想,或是要再去面對,對於我來講都是非常地折磨、非常地痛苦,但是就是勇敢面對,因為我覺得就是,老天爺就是給我這個使命,要好好地去面對這樣子的人,這樣子一個惡劣的人,我覺得不能再讓他逍遙法外。」

坦言會是二度傷害,但高嘉瑜強調,還是要勇敢站出來,不採取隔離訊問,要和林秉樞面對面交互詰問,更希望法官重懲,判處最重刑度。不過,林秉樞被依傷害等8項罪名起訴,他並未全部認罪,是否有動手傷害、私刑拘禁、偷拍身體隱私,甚至持私密影像恐嚇等,透過雙方當面詰問,合議庭都將一一釐清。

林秉樞委任律師陳頂新說明:「高嘉瑜立委主要是檢察官這邊申請傳喚,因為其實就法律上來說。她對我們來講算敵性證人,不過我想我們今天,當然也會詰問高嘉瑜立委,也有助於釐清整個案件發生的真實狀況。」

不只高嘉瑜出庭作證,林秉樞的兩名助理也被傳喚到庭。林秉樞委任律師回應,3人主要都是檢方申請,不過也將在法庭上,詰問高嘉瑜,以釐清事實真相和事件脈絡。
