Vice Chairman of Chinatrust Financial Holding Co Jeffrey Koo Jr (辜仲諒) yesterday issued a statement, saying that he did not give any exclusive interview to the press while in the US nor had he made any comment that he was "disappointed with Taiwan" and was considering "leaving the country forever." Koo is currently on a two-month Eisenhower Fellowship program in the US and is not scheduled to return until Nov. 18. Prosecutors are currently probing Chinatrust Financial's controversial investment in Mega Financial Holding Co. The Taipei District Court ordered the detention of three top Chinatrust officials early this month. Koo is the only key figure in the case who has not yet been subpoenaed by prosecutors. Koo denied telling a friend that Chinatrust's investment in Mega Financial was a "political affair," as the Chinese language Business Weekly magazine reported.
