Chinese Unity Promotion Party (CUPP) founder Chang An-le (張安樂) and his son,
Chang Wei (張瑋), were yesterday released without bail after being summoned for questioning earlier in the day about funding sources for the party.
The CUPP has allegedly received money over the years from China to organize pro-China rallies in Taiwan and engage in violent activities against students and pro-Taiwan independence groups.
Leaving the Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office after questioning last night, Chang Wei said that although prosecutors have the right to investigate, “they are using the judicial process to torment us. It does not leave a good impression for society.”
Prosecutors on Wednesday had also summoned other CUPP executives — including Hu Ta-kang (胡大綱) and Wen Chih-cheng (溫吉成) — for questioning, after raiding the party’s head office in Taipei, Chang An-le’s residence in New Taipei City and other locations the day before. [FULL STORY]
