SERVICE MANUAL OF TAIWAN TAINAN DISTRICT COURT
Address: No. 308, Sec. 3, Chien Kang Road, Anping District, Tainan City, Taiwan
The Tainan District Court was established in October 1895 during the Japanese occupation period. A court in Tainan was designated under the
Governor's Office Court Organization in Taiwan. The court's governing area
once covered from Chiayi and Yunlin in the north to Fengshan and Penghu in
the south. The court's title was changed to Taiwan Tainan District Court after
Taiwan's Restoration in 1945. The organization was also changed based on
The Court Organization Act and The Rules Governing the Functions and
Assignments of District Court, and its administrative supervision is directly
under Taiwan High Court. Later, Kaohsiung, Chiayi, and Yunlin set up their
own courts in 1945, 1947, and 1964 respectively. Thus the governing area of this
court was reduced to Tainan County and Tainan City only. There are six areas
in Tainan City. (i.e. East, Central-West, South, North, Anping and Annan)
There are two special municipalities, seven towns, twenty-two townships, and
the governing area totals 2176 square kilometers with a population of about one
million and seven hundred and ten thousand (1,710,000).
The old office of the court at Fu Chien Road was built in 1912 and was
planned for demolition and rebuilding because it was old and small. However,
it was rated a Class Two Monument by the Ministry of Interior and thus cannot
be demolished according to the law. Thus a new site was found on Chien
Kang Road. The building project began in 1995 and increased over the years.
In order to use resources most efficiently, the Summary Court and General
Court of Tainan are also located in the same building. The new building of
this courtcovers an area of 39,060m2 (11,816 pings) and the floor area is
59,652.83m2 (18,045 pings). It is a new type steel structure office building with
two basement levels and eleven floors above ground. The new building is
magnificent and stately and it has become a premier and representative court
building here in Taiwan. In order to make both facilities complement each
other, the detailed planning is focused on construction of a modern court
building, while the concept is based on "humanity, information, art and
service" for a brand new court image. It is hoped to realize a new image of a
court using a broadened vision so as to achieve the goal of service to local
citizens. Implementing the idea of "convenience, courtesy, and consideration
for the people" allows the court service quality to be upgraded and strives for
the goal of "justice for the people."
This court insists on the idea of service for the people to offer faster and
higher quality service to citizens and other court service users. Also, in order to
implement the concept of "convenience, courtesy, and consideration for the
people", we propose the following policy as the framework and direction of our
service for the people:
- A Court focused on Humanity
We insist on human dignity from original rights in the Constitution and we
start from the viewpoint of the people to offer a comfortable surrounding
during the business hours or court sessions. We seek to assure high quality
service and let people feel their dignity has been fully respected. This in
turn builds up the public's confidence in the court system.
- A Court that provides Information
The 21st century is the century of the internet. Through the connection of
the internet it is possible to make resources public, shared, and convenient.
People can get all kinds of information on the court and then get to know
the court better. Additionally, we have a goal of automation of operations
and we work to create a paperless office in order to reduce the manpower
demand and upgrade the administrative efficiency.
- A Court of Art
Court is a sacred temple to seek justice and a place to solve the disputes and
conflicts of different parties. The public area planning of the court's
internal building is an art exhibition space for people who come to our court
during business hours or court session to appreciate art. Furthermore, art
exerts a favorable influence both physically and mentally. Using art as a
metaphor for turn hostility into harmony, the court hopes to mediate
disputes so as to achieve the goal of no criminal sentences.
- A Service-Oriented Court
With the idea that the court is made for the people, we respect everyone
who comes to the court. We offer people convenience and courtesy.
When helping people, we try our best to complete each service well, and
hope all citizens recognize and feel positive about our determination to
upgrade our service quality and efforts.
