Taiwan's Son-in-Law

Taiwan's President's son-in-law, Chao Chien-ming, has been convicted of insider trading in connection with Taiwan Development Corp's scandal. Not only him alone, even his father was convicted.

The Taipei District Court increased the Chao senior and junior's jail sentences in this appeal case. The first verdict was given in December 2006 and an appeal was filed. Looks like a case of beyond reasonable doubt was proven.

This is what I called "Just do your job without fear even though it involves the head of state's family/relatives". I can also say that the Taipei court system was free from any government intervention / pressure. Or maybe their prosecution team was diligent in their case.
Can I say of the same for the Malaysian court system and prosecutors from the Malaysia's Attorney General's office?
