Severe punishment against street crowd violence
The Legislative Yuan passed an amendment bill to the Criminal Code which provides law enforcement agencies with additional sanctioning powers to crack down on street crowd violence and to uphold safety in society.
Legislature has been clear that the article 149 and article 150 of Criminal Code manifest the definition of street crowd and stipulate that those masterminds, those who carry weapons ,and those who realize the infringement would be sentenced to 7 and a half years in prison. In the future, the police is going to enforce the law with rigor to prevent the recurring street violence.
Thanks to the support of the Executive Yuan and the Legislative Yuan, the amendment bill will constantly contribute to the suppression of the street crowd violence and to the protection of the safety in society.
