Lawmakers serving on the Legislative Yuan’s Transportation Committee yesterday froze
50 percent of the budget allocated for Taoyuan International Airport Co (TIAC), citing the company’s broken promise to not pay the head of the TPE Aviation Security Co (桃園機場保全股份有限公司).
The aviation security firm is a TIAC reinvestment and was created to handle the specific security requirements of an international airport.
When proposing its own aviation security firm, TIAC said that the firm’s president and chairman would not receive compensation. However, lawmakers found that this was not the case.
The aviation security firm is managed by Hu Ching-fu (胡景富), a former chief secretary of the National Immigration Agency who is the company’s president and acting chairman. [FULL STORY]
