Taipei, Aug. 26 (CNA) The Cabinet-level Department of Consumer Protection on Wednesday sent personnel to “The Face of Leonardo, Images of a Genius” exhibition in Taipei to check the venue and advertisements, amid a series of controversies surrounding the exhibition.
The department said it needed to carry out some checks before it could determine whether the organizers of the exhibition had violated the law on false advertising.
Wu Cheng-hsueh (吳政學), deputy head of the department, said the organizers may be in violation of Article 22 of the Consumer Protection Act, if it is found that they are making false claims about the authenticity of the items on display. [FULL STORY]
