An ironic group to fight the CCP

E-mail Print PDF

The idea was proposed by Professor Lee Hsiao-feng last year before Chinese envoy Chen Yunlin visited Taiwan. We have called it the Taiwan Youth Anti-Communist Corps. Aside from being ironic, the name captures our goal of focusing on Taiwanese youth.

The name is similar to the China Youth Anti-Communist National Salvation Corps (“China Youth Corps” for short).

Former president Chen Shui-bian’s application for a passport was “old news” and Taiwan’s judicial system would be proven unjust if it abused its power and extended his detention by raking up old news as new evidence, Chen’s office said yesterday.

On Wednesday, former Presidential Office secretary Chen Hsin-yi testified in court that Chen Shui-bian had told her to file an application for a passport for him “most urgently” soon after he stepped down last July. Chen Hsin-yi added that then-first lady Wu Shu-jen told her to pay for the application fees for passports for the then-first family using the “state affairs fund.”
