Taipei High Administrative Court on Monday reiterated that all legal proceedings are to be halted until the Council of Grand Justices announces its interpretation of the Act Governing the Settlement of Ill-gotten Properties by Political Parties and Their Affiliate Organizations (政黨及其附隨組織不當取得財產處理條例), the Ill-gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee said yesterday.

Committee spokeswoman Shih Chin-fang (施錦芳) said that the ruling has no effect on administrative penalties already issued by the committee.

The league’s assets are still frozen, and the league still needs the committee’s permission to use its assets, she said.

The court did not give specific reasons for its ruling and stopped hearing the case involving the league simply because other judges have already applied for a constitutional interpretation for a separate case involving the act and because the court’s economic and judicial resources are shared, Shih said.    [FULL  STORY]
