Taipei, April 29 (CNA) Taiwan's Army said Wednesday that it has suspended three military officers over their alleged roles in the death of a lieutenant, who committed suicide at a military camp in Taoyuan earlier this month.

The statement about the suspension of the three officers followed President Tsai Ing-wen's (蔡英文) comment on the matter earlier in the day, when she said she had read a letter written by the late lieutenant's mother and promised a thorough investigation into the case.

In the letter, the mother said she suspected that her son had been a victim of bullying, which had led to his suicide.

In its statement, the Army said it had suspended three officers, pending its investigation into their roles in the death of lieutenant Huang (黃), whose first name was not released.    [FULL  STORY]
