The Investigation Bureau came under attack on Thursday after Cabinet officials said the bureau’s anti-spy bill authorized it with unconditional surveillance and interrogation powers.
Vice Premier Lin Hsi-yao (林錫耀) said Thursday that an anti-spy bill proposed by the Ministry of Justice’s Investigative Bureau earlier January was currently under Cabinet review.
The bill is being reviewed along with an amendment to the Act Governing Relations between the People of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area, Lin said at a meeting of the Democratic Progressive Party’s Central Standing Committee.
Both bills purport to address concerns that Chinese authorities have been penetrated Taiwan’s political and intelligence community. [FULL STORY]
