A request to investigate alleged violations by President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英
九) during his time as Taipei mayor in the Taipei Dome case was made in accordance with legal procedures, Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said yesterday, adding that the Presidential Office’s allegation that the move was politically motivated was false.
The Taipei Clean Government Committee on Monday said it would forward the case to the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) and request it to investigate Ma’s and former Taipei Department of Finance commissioner Lee Such-der’s (李述德) alleged corruption and the illegal gains made by Taipei Dome contractor Farglory Group.
“Let us see if you dare protect [Ma] after the elections. This is a test for the ministry,” committee member Cheng Wen-long (鄭文龍) said. [FULL STORY]
