Former Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislator Chiu Yi (邱毅)
yesterday filed a lawsuit against eight people, accusing them of illegally accessing court records and defaming him by publicizing a 2012 audio recording in which he apologized to Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) for falsely accusing her of masterminding a shooting in 2010.
At a news conference on Wednesday, Chiu denied that he had ever apologized in court to Tsai, who had sued him for claiming on a political talk show that she was behind the shooting of KMT Central Standing Committee member Sean Lien (連勝文) during an election campaign event in 2010.
His denial prompted the DPP to make public a copy of the court transcript as well as a voice recording, confirming that he had indeed made an apology. [FULL STORY]
