Protesters yesterday rallied outside the Taipei Military Police Station over the
military police’s controversial seizure of White Terror-era documents from the residence of a civilian surnamed Wei (魏), an action leaders said represented a “return to White Terror era authoritarianism.”
About 30 Free Taiwan Party supporters gathered outside the station to denounce the military police and the Ministry of National Defense (MND) for seizing the declassified documents during a search conducted without a warrant.
They held up banners which said: “Deplorable actions by military police,” “refuse Waffen-SS troops” and “Give us transitional justice,” then set fire to a military police uniform and ghost money at the entrance to the station.
The protesters issued a statement demanding Minister of National Defense Kao Kuang-chi’s (高廣圻) resignation and called for a thorough judicial investigation into which officials were responsible.
They also demanded a law be implemented to oversee the public disclosure of all White Terror era documents. [FULL STORY]
