The Ill-gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee might recognize the National
Women’s League as affiliated with the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) before any further hearing, meaning the discussion of the disposal of the league’s assets could begin with such recognition.
League representatives attended a meeting held by the committee on April 27 to determine if the league had been controlled by the KMT, and if it had collected illicit gains through its connection with the party.
The committee has been verifying data and statements presented at the hearing, and discussions have been held over whether there is enough evidence to assume the alleged affiliation between the league and the KMT to be true before a planned further hearing, committee spokeswoman Shih Chin-fang (施錦芳) said yesterday.
Asked if such a formal recognition being made before a second hearing would be premature and against procedure, Shih said the committee has met its obligation in carrying out its investigation. [FULL STORY]
