Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) vice presidential candidate Jennifer Wang (王如玄)
yesterday filed a slander lawsuit against Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Tuan Yi-kang (段宜康) over allegations of illegal speculative sales of military housing units.
“Before I assumed public office [as minister of the Council of Labor Affairs in 2008,] I did make investments in real estate. However, all of my property transactions were reported in accordance with the law,” Wang said after filing the charges at the Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office yesterday afternoon. “I might not be a perfect person, but I am without doubt a law-abiding citizen.”
Wang said she decided to resort to the law to defend her innocence after being subjected to various mudslinging attacks, apologizing to the public for stirring up so much social tumult recently. [FULL STORY]
