Taipei, May 13 (CNA) A total of 39 former freeway toll collectors were arrested Wednesday after they broke into a government office and carried out acts of vandalism in protest over what they described as unfair treatment they have received.
About 40 out of the 70 protesters, who were laid off following the implementation of an electronic toll system in 2014, forced their way into the Directorate-General of Personnel Administration under the Executive Yuan.
They managed to lock the office from the inside and sprayed the walls and signs of the administration with graffiti until the police finally gained entry and arrested 30 women and nine men. [FULL STORY]
