The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) yesterday submitted a petition to the Control Yuan
asking it to investigate the alleged bias of five Transitional Justice Commission staff embroiled in a scandal that on Tuesday resulted in the resignation of commission deputy chairman Chang Tien-chin (張天欽).
“After the news broke that Chang was attempting to target a certain individual, he was the only one forced to step down, while commission Secretary-General Hsu Chun-ju (許君如), two commission researchers and one associate researcher, who were also implicated, have been allowed to remain in their posts,” KMT Culture and Communications Committee deputy director-general Hung Meng-kai (洪孟楷) told a news conference outside the Control Yuan in Taipei.
The failure of those five people to adhere to the principle of administrative neutrality poses a dire threat to the properties of the nation’s civil associations, he said.
“That is why we call on Control Yuan members to launch an investigation and exercise their power of corrective measures to suspend those who have breached the principle of neutrality,” Hung said. [FULL STORY]
