TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taipei City police have detained motivational teacher Wu
Tung-jung (吳東融) for allegedly sexually assaulting five female students who had enrolled in his spiritual motivation classes.
The 34-year-old man allegedly advertised on Facebook calling himself a “spiritual lecturer” and claimed to have attracted more than 300 students, according to an Apple Daily report. On his Facebook page, he claimed to be CEO of a design company, which does not have any online presence other than an address in Wanhua District, and GET成功易開罐, his motivational education company, to improve his credibility. With the help of friends and even some students, his online persona spread slowly.
His course claimed to build confidence and realize dreams and included lessons on “how to communicate freely” and “seven keys to achieving dreams.”
