National Taiwan University (NTU) president Kuan Chun-ming (管中閔) received about
NT$16 million (US$518,925) for illegally working part-time while serving as an Academia Sinica research fellow, NTU professor and minister without portfolio between 2002 and 2015, the Control Yuan said yesterday.
According to NTU regulations, teachers who accept outside jobs without the school’s approval could be fired, suspended, denied a contract renewal or deprived of certain benefits as a punishment, Control Yuan member Wang Yu-ling (王幼玲) told a news conference in Taipei.
The Control Yuan on Jan. 15 voted seven to four to impeach Kuan after an investigation found that he had received NT$50,000 per month for seven years for writing for a column in the Chinese-
language Next Magazine while serving as a minister. [FULL STORY]
