Ma says that a total of fifty people were executed in three years he served as the Minister of Justice and that, "The death penalty won't be abolished, but will be implemented carefully."

A spokesperson of the president, Chen Yi-xin, says, "Denying Taiwanese sovereignty of the Diaoyu Islands is a humiliation to the country. The ROC government and her people cannot accept this."
