Taipei, March 8 (CNA) Lee Yuan-tsu (李元簇), who served as vice president under Lee Teng-hui (李登輝, no relation), died at the age of 93 at his home in Miaoli County on Wednesday following a long battle with kidney disease.

Lee had not eaten for more than 10 days prior to his death, surviving only on nutrient supplements, Chen Chin-ting (陳進丁), a close family friend and former house steward, told CNA that day.

Lee passed away peacefully at 4:15 a.m., with his family by his side, said Chen, leader of the Coast Guard Administration’s Taoyuan Reconnaissance Brigade.
