Hundreds of people yesterday gathered in front of the Hualien County Government’s
auditorium to protest the Executive Yuan’s decision on Wednesday to dismiss Fu Kun-chi as county commissioner.
Addressing the protest, Fu said that the ruling was “unjust and illegal,” and called on his supporters and county residents to band together and help elect Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) commissioner candidate Hsu Chen-wei (徐榛蔚), who is his wife, in November.
Fu accused the judge and clerk at the Taiwan High Court’s Taichung branch of altering his affidavit and failing to observe proper court procedure by neglecting to state the basis on which the court found him guilty during his oral argument.
The Control Yuan last month censured the court after if found that there was a discrepancy between the court transcript and the court recording, Fu said.
