TAIPEI, Taiwan — The National Women’s League (NWL) has agreed to donate over 80
percent of its assets to the government for charity use as well as accept public oversight of its operations, the Ministry of the Interior announced Monday.
The announcement, made by Interior Minister Yeh Jiunn-rong (葉俊榮), marked a significant step forward in the government’s handling of the league.
The Tsai Ing-wen administration, as part of its transitional justice policy, has been looking into the NWL’s funds, a major source of which was the “surcharge for the military” — a form of tax levied on export goods.
The MOI has been requesting that the group explain in detail its handling of funds received from the surcharge, which was intended to get funds for the military.
