正義有時會遲到,但還是會到。Justice will prevail, albeit a bit later sometimes.

今天是228紀念日,柯文哲的談話很感人。二二八的平反與立法,可說漫長而曲折:在戒嚴解除前夕,由陳永興、鄭南榕的街頭和平遊行揭開了轉型正義的序幕,經過六年左右,國民黨政府才提出「二二八事件處理條例」草案,但拒絕道歉或賠償,我在1993年領銜提出賠償條例草案,馬英九為當時法務部長,堅持「補償」為底線,不再讓步,但補償表示政府沒錯,例如徵收土地補償,「賠償」才是認錯,對被害者意義差很大,我拒理力爭無效,一直拖到2005年我當行政院長時,才改正為賠償。歷史事件的平反與追究,非常不容易,不過只要堅持,正義有時會遲到,但還是會到。

Today is the 228 memorial. Ko Wen-je’s speech was very moving.

Redressing [the consequences of] the 228 Incident and legislating [such effort] has been a protracted and complicated process. Right before the Martial Law was abolished, the peaceful street protest led by Chen Yun-hsin and Cheng Nan-jung started the call for transitional justice. Six years later, the KMT Government proposed the draft bill of the February 28 Incident Disposition Act but refused to apologise or compensate. In 1993, I led the draft bill for state compensation and admitting liability (賠償). Ma Ying-jeou was the Minister of Justice at the time and insisted on compensation without accepting responsibility (補償). My protest was unsuccessful. It was not until 2005 when I was Premier the amendment in relation to the attribution of responsibility was adopted.

Redress for and investigation into historical incidents are very difficult. However, if we persist, justice will prevail, albeit a bit later than expected in some cases.

‘Compensation for 228 Incident has not come easy. Only until 2005 was the legal liability confirmed. ‘
