(KMT) assets would fulfill the long-standing wishes of 228 Incident victims, representatives of victims’ families said yesterday.

Speaking at a news conference, the representatives also expressed their support for the government’s efforts toward transitional justice.

“We have been compensated, but the entire nation had to pay for it, not the perpetrators,” Taiwan 228 Incident Care Association director-general Pan Hsin-hsing (潘信行) said, adding that seizure of KMT assets by the committee would cover the costs of compensation.
