Taipei, Nov. 25 (CNA) Taiwan’s opposition party Kuomintang (KMT) on Friday criticized as unconstitutional and unlawful a decision by an ad hoc committee under Taiwan’s Cabinet that “all shares of the Central Investment Corp. (中投) and Hsinyutai Co. (欣裕台) were improperly obtained ” by the KMT and should “be transferred to the state.”
Hu Wen-chi (胡文琦), KMT spokesman and deputy director of its Culture and Communications Committee, said the Ill-Gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee hastily made the decision before it confirmed the minutes of its hearing on Oct. 7 and before the assets declarations of the two companies had been finished.
“What the committee did was totally ignoring the law and obviously unconstitutional and unlawful,” said Hu.
The KMT will use all possible judicial means to appeal the decision and has not ruled out the possibility of protesting on the street, said Hu. [FULL STORY]
