TAIPEI, Taiwan — Former Foreign Affairs Minister Francisco Lung-lien Ou (歐鴻鍊) has slammed Taiwan’s incumbent representative to Germany, Jhy-wey Hsieh (謝志偉), as being extremely unfit for the post, accusing him of politicizing the recent controversy over students dressing as Nazis for a mock rally.
A a press conference hosted by the National Policy Foundation, Ou said that Hsieh is a representative of the Republic of China in Taiwan — not the ruling Democrat Progressive Party (DPP).
“He failed to recognize his own capacity and lacked professional diplomatic knowledge and training, and made undesirable and ridiculous remarks about the incident, seriously abusing his post as a diplomat,” Ou said.
Ou was referring to remarks Hsieh made on Facebook saying that a key reason the student Nazi incident at a Hsinchu City high school occurred was that “the spirits of Nazism still exist in Taiwan.” [FULL STORY]
