Taipei posts photos of litterers on Web
Taiwan News - Sept. 3, 2004
Taipei has a new most-wanted list, but those being hunted aren’t murderers, rapists or thieves. They’re litterbugs.
Their mug shots are posted on the Taipei government’s Web site, along with an appeal to the public for help in identifying the messy offenders.
So far, four people are in the gallery of shame, guilty of flicking their cigarette butts on the ground, the city says.
Police snapped their photos because they refused to provide ID so that tickets could be issued, according to the Department of Environmental Protection’s Web site.
But some think the city’s policy, which began in May, is heavy handed.
"It’s an obvious invasion of human rights," activist Wu Hau-jen told the Apple Daily newspaper. "I wonder which idiot came up with the idea."
