Facebook questioning the authenticity of President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) academic credentials on Tuesday (June 11).

Peng said he agreed with commentator Cao Chang-qing (曹長青), who said in a Facebook post on Monday that it is questionable whether the president’s doctoral dissertation exists.

These claims were made despite strong evidence to the contrary from Tsai’s alma mater and the British Library.

Cao said that according to the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS) website, where all theses published in the U.K. are collected, Tsai’s doctoral dissertation for her PhD degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), University of London, has been listed as “missing.”
