台灣:法院決定重審死囚鄭性澤案
 
在獄中渡過5231日的死囚鄭勝澤,獲台中高等法院判處停止執行刑罰,以就案件進行重審。他於5月3日下午獲准離開被囚禁14年的台中看守所,並與家人團聚。
 
鄭性澤被指於2002年涉及槍殺一名警員,並在2006年5月被判死刑。然而,涉案的4支手槍並沒有任何指紋,而警方在調查時並未保持案發現場維持原狀。加上在法院未有進行彈道分析或者法醫分析下,令整件案件成疑。

鄭性澤曾提出判處死刑的非常上訴,但於2012年12月11日被駁回。本會的死刑關注組及緊急行動網絡隨即聲援鄭性澤,以免他被執行死刑。今年3月,台中檢察官認為鄭性澤案件的證據存在疑點,故向法院提出再審;直到5月3日,法院批准重審鄭性澤案。
  

我們感謝各位的行動,讓鄭性澤避免成為死刑的受害者,並重獲接受公平審訊的機會,再次與年事已高的媽媽共渡母親節。

觀看紀錄片:我無罪,我是鄭性澤!
 
Taiwan: The court granted Cheng Hsin-tze a retrial
 
After spending 5231 days in the prison, Taiwanese death row inmate Cheng Hsin-tze was released from Taichung Detention Centre on 3 May afternoon. He reunited with his family after 14 years of imprisonment. 
 
Cheng was accused of killing a police officer and was sentenced to death in May 2006. Nevertheless, it was a case of doubt as Cheng’s fingerprints were not found on any of the guns obtained from the crime scene. The police also failed to keep the crime scene intact and the court had never sought for a ballistic or forensic analysis.

Cheng asked for an extraordinary appeal but was rejected on 11 December 2012. Our Death Penalty Concern Group and Urgent Network have then campaigned for Cheng from being executed. In March, prosecutors found doubts in Cheng’s case based on the evidence provided and requested for a retrial. On 3 May, the court has approved such request.
 
We thank everyone who has contributed to Cheng’s retrial opportunity and saved Cheng from being another victim of death penalty. He could finally celebrate Mother's Day with his mother after all these 14 years!
