Jul 30, 2018 General Comments Off on Two Taiwanese indicted for violating national security laws (update)
Taipei, Two Taiwanese members of a Chinese university alumni association were indicted by prosecutors Monday on charges of violating national security laws, according to the Taipei District Prosecutors Office.
The two suspects, identified only by their family names of Fu (?) and Li (?), are members of the Jinan University (JNU) Taiwan Alumni Association, where Fu currently holds the position of secretary-general while Li is the executive officer, prosecutors said.
Between 2009 and 2012, Fu and Li set up over a dozen rendezvous in a third country between Taiwanese people and Chinese officials, in an attempt to develop an organization serving the Chinese Communist regime.
The National Security Act prohibits the collection, consignation or delivery of confidential documents, pictures, information or articles, or the development of an organization for official use of a foreign country or China.
From 2012 to 2016, the two men enrolled 17 people, including legislative assistants and local officials, on behalf of the JNU to study at the Chinese school. During this period, Fu and Li received nearly NT$3 million from JNU for introducing them to the school.
According to the prosecutors office, Chinese schools are prohibited from setting up enrollment programs in Taiwan to attract local students without proper authorization from the Ministry of Education (MOE).
As such, Fu and Li were also indicted for violating the Act Governing Relations between the People of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area.
Jinan University, founded in 1906, is based in Guangzhou, in China's Guangdong Province.
