As lawmakers are taking actions to abolish a law which governs the operations of the Taiwan 6756940Red Cross, Cabinet spokesperson Tung Chen-yuan said Tuesday that the actions do not aim to do away with the country’s Red Cross.

The consensus to abolish the Red Cross Society Act was reached on Monday in a meeting between the new government’s executive and legislative bodies.

The meeting participants agreed that while it is necessary to keep the Taiwan Red Cross, the special law governing the operations of the organization should be abolished in the future so that it can become a civil organization and be regulated under the Civil Organizations Act just like other civil organizations in the country.

Tung said the Taiwan society has many suspicions regarding operations of the Taiwan Red Cross, including utilization of donations and the unlimited terms of the organization’s president.     [FULL  STORY]
