Taipei City Councilor Lai Su-ju (賴素如) of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT), a former aide to President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), has also been indicted over her alleged involvement in the corruption allegations.

Taipei City councilors across party lines yesterday urged the city government to nullify the project, with Democratic Progressive Party Taipei City Councilor Chiang Chi-ming (江志銘) saying that Chiu’s indictment proved the bidding process was illegal and that it should be nullified.
