The Ministry of Economic Affairs said it is to hand over seven local solar product makers for investigation by prosecutors, after the manufacturers allegedly threatened ministry officials when it was discovered they were mislabeling their products.
It is alleged that the solar makers had labeled goods manufactured in China as Taiwan-made prior to selling them on the European market.
“The seven manufacturers have violated the law,” Bureau of Foreign Trade Deputy Director-General David Hsu (徐大衛) told reporters during a telephone interview on Thursday night. [FULL STORY]
