Taipei, March 5 (CNA) The commander at the Ching Chuan Kang (CCK) air base in


Taichung apologized Sunday for a scandal in which drugs were found on the base last month and some servicemen tested positive for drug use.

At a press conference on the air base, Major General Wang Te-yang (王德揚) said that as commanding officer he was taking full responsibility for the matter and had sent a letter of apology to the Air Force Command.

Wang said he also wished to apologize to the public for allowing drugs to tarnish the military’s code of honor.

The issue arose from the discovery of 53 small packets of drugs at different locations on the base on Feb. 27. In subsequent tests of the 2,303 servicemen on the base, eight people tested positive for drug use.    [FULL  STORY]
