“What Want Want China Times has been doing proves how important it is to resist this media monster, which has no ethics in news reporting,” the statement said.

He also called on the media group to leave his family alone, as reporters from the group have not only been following him around for days, but have also stationed themselves around his house.

Huang said he would be leaving for the US for 10 months on a pre-scheduled research project next week, but added that the project was scheduled last year, and asked the media group to refrain from fabricating so-called news out of it.

He was referring to a report by CtiTV that Huang’s decision to leave Taiwan for so long right after the alleged scandal broke was “suspicious.”
