Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) yesterday
rebutted allegations that she leaked new KMT members’ personal information to former vice president Wu Den-yih’s (吳敦義) camp, adding that the party’s headquarters is investigating the case.
Hung made the remarks while visiting a group of military veterans going by the self-chosen name of “800 Heroes” that have been camping outside the legislature to protest the government’s pension reform plans since late February.
The original “800 Heroes” were a group of Chinese soldiers who defended a warehouse against Japanese troops during the 1937 Battle of Shanghai. [FULL STORY]
