The previous office

The predecessor organization of this office (during Taiwan's colonization by the Japanese empire) was the Chiayi Prosecutors Branch of Tainan District Court after a reorganization following Taiwan's recovery in 1945. The first prosecutor Liu Jheng-Dao stood in as proxy for the chief prosecutor and was in charge of administrative businesses. It was not until June 1st 1947, Chiayi District Prosecutors Office was formally founded. Then, the Premier served as Chief Prosecutor managing comprehensive affairs. There were appointed prosecutors organizing criminal investigation, execution and examination businesses. Personnel duties were a part-time job of the Chief Clerk, a position that undertook recording, exercising, documentation and general affairs. Bailiffs guarded criminals and adjunct accounting officers and statisticians of the court took care of accounting and statistic functions.
A clearer distinction between judicial and prosecutorial functions was promulgated on July 1,1970, thereby hierarchic courts were subordinated to the Judicial Yuan and the prosecutorial system was placed under the jurisdiction of Ministry of Justice. We were reorganized as the Prosecutors Office of Chaiyi District Court by amended and enforced organizational law of court on December 24, 1989. The Premier Prosecutor was renamed as Chief Prosecutor, the Clerk Room as Clerk Division, while section chiefs of recording, exercising, documentation, examination and general affairs were appointed adjunct clerks of the Ministry of Justice. Executive Yuan authorized the category of this office as second category of District Prosecutors Office at March 15, 1991 and original personnel office (2) was authorized to be reformed as the civil service ethics office in September 16, 1992 and took over partial tasks of the personnel office and a new level of civil service ethics responsibilities.
