TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taipei City Government consultant Liu Chia-jen (劉嘉仁) has deniedsexually harassing Taipei City Government Vice-Spokesperson Huang Jing-ying (黃瀞瑩), during an interpellation at Taipei City Council on Thursday (Oct. 31).
CNA reported that Liu allegedly harassed Huang by calling her into his office to discuss work-related matters and closing the door. He also, reportedly, constantly sent her messages, which made her uncomfortable.
In response, Liu said the term “sexual harassment” was exaggerated. Instead, he characterized his messages as “a little bit annoying” and claimed his reminders were intended to ensure her performance met expectations, CNA wrote.
Huang made no comment. Chairperson of the Research, Development and Evaluation Commission, Yu Chia-che (余家哲), reportedly informed Taipei City Major Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) of the situation.
