Roh Moo Hyun Case
It was a sad day for the South Korean people when former President Roh Moo Hyun committed suicide on 23 May 2009. One of many reasons for Roh’s suicide was that he felt strong responsibility towards the Korean citizens as prosecutors began to make the bribery case. Well, it is time for the Chinese to learn responsibility too. In case of Taiwan, former President Chen Shui-bian is currently facing a bribery case and is in prison where he writes his books. Chen has constantly claimed his innocent even though his son admitted his guilt of money laundering. In the case of mainland China, no top leaders has been prosecuted for bribery case; however, a few people globally believe that the leaders in Beijing are so clean because there is no an independent judiciary system under the Chinese communist party dictatorship. As a result, no top Chinese leaders are getting in trouble like Roh Monn Hyun in South Korea or Chen Shui-bian in Taiwan.
