Ill-gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee Chairman Lin Feng-cheng yesterday said
during his inauguration speech that his greatest hope for the committee is to “eliminate” it.
Lin was sworn in as head of the committee, filling the post left vacant by Wellington Koo (顧立雄), who has been tapped to run the Financial Supervisory Commission.
“My greatest hope is to eliminate the committee. I hope in the future there will no longer be an assets settlement committee,” Lin said.
Asked by the media for clarification, Lin said his reasoning was simple: He hopes the commission’s work of accounting for and dealing with all ill-gotten party assets will proceed smoothly and efficiently, “so there would be no need for the committee to exist.” [FULL STORY]
