Even the Lamas are fake

Yes, the sad news is true. There's nothing sacred anymore.....

The number of fake Tibetan lamas from China applying to enter Taiwan using forged documents is on the rise, prompting the attention of Taiwan's law enforcement and national security authorities.

Police and security authorities suspect that a number of unlawful organizations in Taiwan have been providing assistance to fake Tibetan lamas in entering Taiwan, taking advantage of a loophole in Taiwan's law enforcement.

Although a majority of Tibetan monks in Taiwan are sincerely devoted to preaching and behaving well, many have been arrested on charges of illegal activities related to fraud, human or drug trafficking and sex offenses, government officials said.

Some lamas conceal their true identity as Chinese agents and engage in subversion here by luring influential figures from the political and business sectors, posing a threat to national security, a national security official pointed out.

Maybe this is what KMT has in mind when it talks about agreements with China... you harbor our criminals and we'll harbor yours.
