The Kuomintang (KMT) yesterday blasted the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) for insinuating that it instructed the Special Investigation Division (SID) to summon DPP Secretary-General Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) for questioning as part of a so-called “conspiracy to destroy (DPP Chairwoman) Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文).”
KMT spokesman Charles Chen (陳以信) said that the DPP held a press conference in order to insinuate that the questioning of Wu was “politically motivated” and possibly part of a “conspiracy to destroy Tsai.”
Chen blasted the DPP over the remarks and said that the opposition's actions were the worst example of political maneuvering.
This incident shows that the DPP will go to any length to smear the KMT, Chen said.
Wu's questioning had nothing to do with the KMT, Chen said, adding that he does not know why the DPP secretary-general was called in for questioning.
The Kuomintang does not own the judiciary, Chen said, asking that the DPP show respect to the nation's judicial system and not smear the judiciary's name in its attempt to regain power.
