Taichung District prosecutors indicted DPP secretary-general Wu Nai-jen and former DPP legislator Hong Chi-chang on charges of perfidy as prosecutors concluded that Wu, while chairman of Taiwan Sugar Corporation (TSC), had authorized TSC to sell land it owned under market value to a company that had close connections with Hong Chi-chang. The land deal, according to the prosecutors, caused TSC NT$ 400 million in losses.Two more DPP politicians victims of a witch hunt?
Regarding the reports that CLD had served as Hong Chi-chang’s long-term bankrollers, Wu explained that CLD had made political contributions to both the Blue and Green camps, and not just to Hong Chi-chang. Wu said, “Since the prosecutors have already investigated CLD’s operations, they must have seized CLD’s accounting books.” Wu stressed that it would take a stretch of the imagination to characterize CLD as bankrollers of the Green camp.
