Once notorious criminal to supervise police department in Taoyuan City
By: Chris Chang, Taiwan News, Staff Writer
Since his inauguration on June 24, the independent Taoyuan City Councilor Duan Shu-wen (段樹文) has headed a committee related to policing and health. Once wanted by the police, he is now reviewing their funding and interrogating officers.
In June, Duan replaced Liu Mao-chun (劉茂群) of the Kuomingtang (KMT) after Lui was disqualified for bribery. Duan has since taken over Lui’s committee assignments, despite his hesitancy to assume the police oversight post.
He was told to follow the council's regulations and wait for the yearly rotations, according to UDN. [FULL STORY]
