Selective Prosecution. The Taipei Times article “Ma found not guilty in corruption trial” tells of how the KMT government in Taiwan prosecuted opposition party leader Ma for keeping for personal use much of a “special allowance” as mayor of Taipei. It seems that it has been customary for years for officials to treat the allowance as income, and Ma made no secret of doing so, in which case this seems a good example of selective prosecution for political purposes.
