Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) yesterday accused the Democratic
Progressive Party (DPP) government of seeking to launch a politically motivated witch hunt under the banner of “transitional justice.”
Hung said only the KMT has managed to achieve actual transitional justice.
“The KMT has cultivated Taiwan for more than 60 years, making the nation one of the four Asian tiger economies and also, through former president Chiang Ching-kuo’s (蔣經國) lifting of bans on newspapers and political parties, transformed the Republic of China [ROC] from authoritarianism to democracy,” Hung said.
“This is what we call genuine transitional justice,” Hung said, adding that the DPP administration’s oft-trumpeted efforts to push for transitional justice are nothing but a sugarcoated political witch hunt.
Hung made the remarks on the sidelines of an event held by the party’s Chiayi County chapter yesterday morning to celebrate the 122th anniversary of the founding of the KMT’s predecessor the Revive China Society. [FULL STORY]
