The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislative caucus yesterday said there is still the
question of “political and moral flaws” in the case involving Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Chairperson Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) investment in a biotechnology company, “despite the absence of a judicial ruling.”
The Taipei District Court on Tuesday ruled former Council for Economic Planning and Development Minister Christina Liu (劉憶如) to pay Tsai NT$2 million (US$61,189) for defamation over her accusation that Tsai violated revolving-door laws by investing in biotechnology company TaiMed Biologics Inc (中裕新藥).
The case against Tsai was closed in August 2012 after no irregularities were found.
KMT Legislator Wu Yu-sheng (吳育昇) dismissed the DPP’s demand that the KMT apologize for its accusations about Tsai. [FULL STORY]
