China doesn't do public executions. Quite the opposite, they do secret executions, which many think is worse. They did on the other hand have a crime TV program interviewing with those who were about to die. The outcry shut down that series though, years ago.

Last week Taiwan's culture ministry announced plans to repurpose the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, one of Taipei's top tourist attractions, in a project could entail the removal of a massive bronze statue of Chiang. And the hall, it said, will stop selling Chiang-themed merchandise.The memorial hall isn't alone. Chiang's presence is being steadily removed from public spaces across Taiwan, feeding into a larger public debate about Taiwan's identity and "Chinese-ness." Chiang used education and propaganda to create a Chinese identity here, while also trying to erase 50 years of Japanese colonial rule and tamp down the local indigenous culture. But that identity has steadily faded since the arrival of democracy in the 1990s, and a new identity unique to Taiwan has begun to emerge.
Why is Spain in the middle of a spat between China and Taiwan?Although most of the 269 suspects arrested were Taiwanese nationals, Beijing asked for the entire group to be sent to China.

Spain, like most countries, doesn't formally recognise Taiwan as a state.
