Central Motion Picture Corp (CMPC, 中影) chairman Gou Tai-chiang (郭台強)
yesterday denied involvement in an alleged plot a decade ago to kill former Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislator Alex Tsai (蔡正元) and said he would sue his accusers, as well as Sanlih Entertainment Television (SET-TV, 三立電視).
Gou, who is also chairman of Cheng Uei Precision Industry Co (正崴), was on Thursday accused by former businessman Weng Ping-yao (翁炳堯) and attorney Chou Wu-jung (周武榮) of colluding with former president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) in 2007 to hire Weng to kill Tsai amid a power struggle over KMT assets.
Weng and Chou repeated the accusations on a SET-TV political talk show,
naming Gou’s wife, Lor Yu-chen (羅玉珍), former CMPC vice president Chuang Wan-chun (莊婉均) and former Tainan County Council speaker Lee Chuan-chiao (李全教) of the KMT as accomplices. [FULL STORY]
