Taipei, July 25 (CNA) Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Fan Yun (范雲) on Saturday disclosed that she had recently found out she had been a target of the Kuomintang (KMT) government in the early 90s, just a few years after martial law ended in Taiwan.

In a Facebook post, Fan said she learned about it when the Transitional Justice Commission invited her to view an archive of more than 1,000 of secret surveillance files against her.

Fan was one of the leaders of the pro-democracy Wild Lily student movement in 1990. Initiated by university students, the Wild Lily protests called for direct presidential elections and the establishment of a new National Assembly, among other democratic reforms.
