Chiang Kai-shek, a former dictator of the Republic of China who ruled Taiwan from 1945~1975. He was the prime perpetrator who should be ultimately responsible for the February 28 massacre in which up to 28,000 Taiwanese were killed by Chiang’s KMT troops. He also should be accountable for the White Terror in which around 140,000 Taiwanese were persecuted, tortured and killed.
Thus, the authoritarian symbols of Chiang should be removed as soon as possible. However, transitional justice has more far-reaching goals than simply the removal of authoritarian symbols. Its fundamental aim is to build sustainable peace, prevent such human rights violations happening again and assist during democratization through social healing and reconciliation efforts.
