TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Prosecutors were interrogating a major general who played
a senior role in Taiwan’s missile command on suspicion of spying for China, reports said Tuesday.
Major General Hsieh Chia-kang (謝嘉康) currently serves as the deputy chief of the Army’s command for the defense of Matsu (馬祖), a small island just off the coast of China’s Fujian Province.
Media were speculating that due to his history, the major general might have revealed important secrets about Taiwan’s missile deployment plans to China, which has over a thousand missiles of its own targeting the island.
Hsieh is believed to know just about everything there is to know about Taiwan’s locally made missiles and about the imported Patriot PAC-3 batteries, as well as about newly developed projectiles which could hit Shanghai. [FULL STORY]
