A group of 10 to 20 KMT lawmakers and some city councilors on Friday tried to enter the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building to demand that Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) offer an explanation for the suicide last year of Su Chii-cherng (蘇啟誠), the then-director-general of the Osaka branch of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Japan.

However, police at the main entrance blocked the KMT members and a scuffle ensued.

The footage, shared by DPP Legislator Wang Ting-yu (王定宇), appears to show KMT Legislator Arthur Chen (陳宜民) asking the policewoman what her unit is and knocking her cap off before pushing her.    [FULL  STORY]
