order public hearings to investigate whether the China Youth Corps (CYC) is an affiliate organization under the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) de facto control.

The public hearings are to determine whether the KMT continues to exercise de facto and direct control over the corps’ personal management and financial operations, a determination that could lead to the confiscation of any or all of the organization’s illegally-obtained assets, committee members said.

The corps’ legal status has changed three times since its founding on Oct. 31, 1952, the committee said.    [FULL  STORY]
