Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Joanna Lei (雷倩) visited the Taipei District Prosecutors' Office yesterday to push for criminal charges against independent Legislator Li Ao (李敖) for discharging a canister of teargas during a meeting of the legislature's Procedure Committee on Tuesday. Lei asked prosecutors to determine whether Li should be charged with obstructing public functions and/or interfering with rights of assembly. Li sprayed the teargas from the podium of a conference room where the committee members were discussing which bills should be put on the agenda for deliberation at a plenary session today. Lei also told reporters that she reserved the right to file a slander suit against the Li for calling her an "ugly woman" during a heated exchange on Tuesday at the legislature.
