not received any audio evidence from a woman who accused Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) of accepting a large political donation from a wanted fugitive.

Lin Hsiu-chuan (林秀娟), who made the allegation, said she had given an audio disc to the Special Investigation Division (SID) of the Supreme Prosecutors Office during an investigation in November.

The disc provided evidence that Tsai had accepted a donation of NT$450 million (US$13.39 million) from Huang Fang-yen (黃芳彥), former deputy superintendent of Shin Kong Memorial Wu Ho-Su Hospital, Lin said.

In response, Lin said Wednesday that the SID’s comment was regrettable and that she had been “set up” by the SID.     [FULL  STORY]
