A former chief of the Taipei City Government’s Finance Department yesterday fired back at allegations that the administration of then-Mayor Ma Ying-jeou benefited Farglory Construction Co. in the bidding process for the Taipei Dome.

Lee Sush-der (李述德), currently chairman of the Taiwan Stock Exchange, said in a statement that he and the city government had conducted themselves in accordance to regulations in the handling of Taipei Dome talks during the tenure of former Mayor Ma, now R.O.C. president.

He also said he will offer his full cooperation in case of any investigation.     [FULL  STORY]
