Taiwan
A Taiwanese fishing boat has been detained in the Solomon Islands since April over accusations of illegal shark fin catching, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said on Tuesday.
 
Shares in Taiwan closed above the 8,500-point mark on Tuesday as the immediate shock of the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union and its impact on Asian markets appeared to be fading, dealers said.
 
British withdrawal from the European Union will likely have little direct impact on Taiwan's economy and the government is prepared to handle any potential effects, the Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC, 金管會) said on Tuesday.
 
The uptick of random killings in Taiwan, including several gruesome slayings of toddlers, have resulted in public outcry, not just for the crimes themselves, but the resulting judicial process following the apprehension of the criminals. This includes an oft-heard saying: "One won't be put to death in Taiwan for committing murder." Public discontent toward the judicial system grows ever-more fervent, leading in some cases to the removal of certain judges deemed unfit by their lack of professionalism.
 
Taxi protest
A fleet of more than 100 taxis parks outside the Legislative Yuan on Tuesday, June 28, protesting against what they claim is the government giving too much leeway to ride-hailing app service Uber. One of the demonstration coordinators said Uber had been operating in Taiwan for four years, but the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) had not taken any action. "The more fines (Uber) is slapped with, the larger it gets," said Shen Hsin-fa (沈新發) vice president of the taxi drivers' association. "It makes no sense."

The opposition Kuomintang's Central Evaluation and Discipline Committee decided Tuesday to expel former party spokesman Yang Wei-chung (楊偉中) from the party over recent outspoken criticisms, which the KMT said has undermined the party's reputation.
 
The Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC, 金管會) said Tuesday that it will push for the removal of a ban to allow Chinese retail investors to buy mutual funds in Taiwan soon.
