TAIPEI, Taiwan — Former President Ma Ying-jeou and three others masterminded the
2007 shooting attack on the office of a Kuomintang lawmaker, according to a man who has already served a prison sentence over the crime.
Weng Bing-yao (翁炳堯), who was convicted of abetting the gunman, made the stunning claim to prosecutors on Thursday as part of ongoing investigations into the attack on the office of then-Legislator Alex Tsai, a member of Ma’s KMT.
Along with Ma, Weng said, the shootup was also planned by Central Pictures Corp. (CPC) Chairman Gou Tai-chiang (郭台強) and his wife Lo Yu-chen (羅玉珍) as well as CPC Vice Chairwoman Chuang Wan-jun (莊婉均).
Weng said he had turned himself in for perjury, claiming he had lied a decade earlier when he told prosecutors that Gou had not directed the attack on Tsai — something he now says is true. [FULL STORY]
