TAIPEI — Wang Ju-hsuan (王如玄), the vice presidential candidate of the ruling Kuomintang’s (KMT) ticket, continued yesterday to face fire over allegations of real estate speculation during her term as labor minister 2008-2012, as two members of the main opposition party filed a lawsuit against her for alleged forgery and fraud.

The two Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) members, one of them a legislative candidate, said in the lawsuit that Wang and her husband, Huang Tung-hsun (黃東焄), head of the Judicial Yuan’s Department of Government Ethics, had concealed their purchase of military housing units in the 2008-2012 period and had failed to declare the properties.

The suit filed by Hsu Chia-ching (徐佳青) and DPP legislative candidate Akira Chen (陳文彬) was based on an allegation on Nov. 19 by DPP Legislator Tuan Yi-kang (段宜康) that Wang had used her position as labor minister during the four year period to buy and sell restricted military housing units for profit.

Wang, who is the running on the KMT presidential ticket alongside the party’s chairman Eric Chu (朱立倫), filed a lawsuit against Tuan on Wednesday for alleged slander.     [FULL  STORY]
