Taiwan safe for tourists: S Korean representative

Taipei Times

South Korea’s representative to Taiwan lauded tourism in the nation and said that it is a safe place to visit, downplaying concerns that a case in which a South Korean tourist was allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted by a Taiwanese taxi driver could harm the tourism industry.

In an interview with the Central News Agency, Korean Mission in Taipei Representative Yang Chang-soo said through an interpreter that although the case might hurt the image of Taiwan, it could also be turned into an opportunity if authorities demonstrate their resoluteness in dealing with such problems.

This was an isolated incident and similar things could happen in almost any nation, said Yang, who took up his post late last year.

On Jan. 15, a Taiwanese taxi driver, surnamed Chan (詹), was detained for allegedly molesting one of three South Korean women who hired him to drive them around northern Taiwan on Jan. 12.    [FULL  STORY]
