Taipei, Feb. 23 (CNA) Interior Minister Chen Wei-zen (陳威仁) said Tuesday that it would be better to amend the outdated parts of a law governing the Red Cross Society than to scrap the law altogether.
Chen said there is historical significance in the existence of the Red Cross Society, noting that other countries also have special laws to govern it.
He said he is in favor of amending the outdated parts of the Red Cross Society Act of the Republic of China, but said the existence of the law is “necessary.”
“It would be better to amend the law than to scrap it,” he said. [FULL STORY]
