Ma Ying-jeou(馬英九)on charges of leaking confidential information regarding the arrangements for his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jingping (習近平) in Singapore late last year.

Huang said that during a talk to Soochow University students Sept. 27, Ma disclosed some details regarding his Nov. 7, 2015 meeting with Xi — information that is still listed as classified.

Ma bragged about how Taiwan and China agreed to inform the United States on Nov. 2 of the impending meeting of the two leaders, “taking the U.S. by surprise,” according to Huang.

Disclosing such classified information has damaged the mutual trust between Taiwan and the U.S., and violates the Criminal Code provisions on leaking state secrets, said Huang, a former spokesman for the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).    [FULL  STORY]
