The Citizen Judges System formally goes into effect on January 1, 2023, putting citizen and professional judges on the same trial panels for the first time in the nation's history. The change carried deep historical significance. To commemorate this event, Chunghwa Post has specially released a souvenir sheet with one stamp of a face value of NT$28.
The stamp features a court with citizen judges, and the marginal inscription of the souvenir sheet features the Judicial Office Building in Taipei, which is a national heritage site. Under this new system, judicial panels responsible for reaching verdicts for major criminal cases will consist of six citizen judges and three professional judges. Citizens who are at least 23 years of age will be eligible to serve. Through their active participation and diverse perspectives, the citizens on these panels will bring the judiciary closer in line with popular thinking and raise transparency, increasing understanding of the judiciary and faith in its reliability.
