TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The Taipei District Prosecutors Office questioned two members of
staff at National Taiwan University as witnesses in the case of the special account set up by Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je, reports said Tuesday.
During last year’s mayoral election campaign, the Kuomintang accused the independent candidate of having set up a so-called “MG149” account which could be used for money laundering and other dubious financial practices. Ko, who worked as a surgeon at the NTU’s prestigious hospital, said the account was legal and helped young physicians and students fund their research.
On Tuesday afternoon, the prosecutors summoned two women employed at the hospital’s research and development department for questioning about the case, reports in the media said, naming the two as Lee and Yeh. [FULL STORY]
