Taipei, Oct. 2 (CNA) Three Army officers will be suspended from their duties for their involvement in a scandal earlier this year in which civilians were brought onto a military base for an unauthorized tour of Taiwan’s most advanced attack helicopters, according to a decision by the judiciary on Friday.
The decision was made by the Judicial Yuan’s Public Functionary Disciplinary Sanction Commission, which is in charge of handling cases of misconduct by civil servants.
Those suspended were: Lt. Col. Lao Nai-cheng (勞乃成), a former deputy battalion commander of the 601st Aviation Brigade at the Army Aviation Special Force Command; Maj. Gen. Chien Tsung-yuan (簡聰淵), head of the 601st Aviation Brigade; and Tao Kuo-chen (陶國禎), head of the brigade’s personnel affairs division. [FULL STORY]
