Premier Su Tseng-chang says Taiwan has mechanisms to support Hong Kongers in Taiwan

Taiwan’s government has not responded directly to allegations that it’s been holding five refugees from Hong Kong for the past two months.

Taiwanese journalist Edd Jhong on Saturday posted details on Facebook about the five people in custody. The detainees are thought to be protestors who participated in a movement opposing a proposed extradition bill. 

According to the Taiwan-based China Times newspaper, the five individuals were rescued by local authorities near a group of Taiwanese-controlled islands in the South China Sea.
