The Ministry of Education (MOE) denied allegations that it has changed the decision to drop charges it made against student protesters, members of the public and journalists for breaking into the ministry’s compound in July, reports said Thursday.
The ministry’s comments came after Chen Bo-yu, a student at the National Commercial Vocational Senior High School in Ilan, received a subpoena earlier this week by the Taipei District Prosecutors Office regarding his participation in illegal student activities, including the destruction of government property on July 23.
Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Chen Ting-fei condemned the education ministry for making false pretenses, urging its officials to explain publicly the procedures as to when and how the charges were dropped last month. [FULL STORY]
