TAIPEI, Taiwan — An Army general accused of being a Chinese spy has been removed from his post pending further investigation, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) has announced.

Maj. Gen. Hsieh Chia-kang (謝嘉康), former head of Taiwan’s Air Defense Missile Command, was arrested earlier this week on suspicion of breaching national security laws.

In a statement released late Wednesday, the Defense Ministry said Hsieh had been relieved of his duties as deputy commander of the Matsu Defense Command and had been demoted to an adviser at Air Force Command Headquarters.

Hsieh had served at the Air Defense Missile Command since graduating from R.O.C. Military Academy and is said to be familiar with the nation’s major missile systems and their deployment, including the indigenous Hsiung Feng III missiles and U.S.-supplied PAC-3 missiles.    [FULL  STORY]
