Chia-jen (劉嘉仁), who has been accused of sexually harassing Taipei City Government deputy spokeswoman Huang Ching-ying, has resigned from his post.

A local Chinese-language newspaper on Thursday reported that Taipei Research, Development and Evaluation Commission chairman Yu Chia-che (余家哲) told Ko in a meeting that Liu allegedly sexually harassed Huang.

The newspaper reported that Liu allegedly asked Huang to go to his office to discuss work-related issues. The meeting was held behind closed doors, causing Huang to feel insecure.

Liu also allegedly sent Huang several text messages using the Line messaging app.
