TAIPEI, Taiwan — Prosecutors are looking into a woman’s claims that she was sexually assaulted by a Taoyuan trade union leader and others.

The woman, whose alias on Facebook is “Ms. Y,” has accused Yao Kuang-chu, secretary general of the Taoyuan Confederation of Trade Unions, of sexually harassing and assaulting her when she was employed by the organization.

Ms. Y claims Yao is not the only one in the confederation who sexually assaulted her. She claims that she worked for the confederation for a year, and that the alleged perpetrators had forced her to state that the sexual acts had been consensual.

The city police’s Children and Women Protection Division said Friday they had started a probe on behalf of the district prosecutors and that social workers had tried to contact Ms. Y Thursday night to arrange an interview.    [FULL  STORY]
