TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – An Internet user who posted online threats of violence against President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) possibly lives in China, the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) said Thursday.

On Lunar New Year’s Day, February 5, a person calling himself “Chaoyang Shao” left a message on the president’s Facebook page in Chinese, writing “Hope for the New Year: beheading Tsai Ing-wen, unification of China,” the Central News Agency reported.
