A legal expert named Shao Tzuping is taking action against the National Immigration Agency for canceling his Taiwanese household registration. The NIA canceled his Taiwan registration last month, after Shao took up household registration in China’s Nanjing. Losing his Taiwanese registration means that Shao is no longer covered by national health insurance. He is also no longer entitled to his pension benefits. Shao says he plans to sue, and the NIA held a press conference today to respond to the threat.
Shao, a Taiwanese legal expert, chose to take up household registration in Nanjing this January. Taiwanese authorities say the move was in violation of laws governing cross-strait affairs. [FULL STORY]
