Chinese Taipei Skating Union (CTSU) to be removed from his position to punish the group for giving up the right to host a figure skating event later this year in Taipei.

The order came after a Ministry of Education (MOE) task force completed an investigation into the controversy over the right to host the 2019 Asian Open Figure Skating Classic and found that Eddy Wu (吳奕德) had not followed proper procedures in handling the case.

The CTSU was originally set to host the event at Taipei Arena from Oct. 30 to Nov. 3, but its hosting rights were eventually switched to Hong Kong, with the competition now scheduled for Dongguan in China's Guangdong province.

According to Sports Administration deputy head Lin Che-hung (林哲宏), the investigation task force found that the ISU asked the CTSU in June for its agreement that Hong Kong could host the event.
