Legislator Chiu Yi has hair-raising experience

By Shih Hsiu-chuan  /  STAFF REPORTER

A supporter of former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) yesterday pulled off KMT Legislator Chiu Yi’s (邱毅) hairpiece at the Control Yuan as the lawmaker was initiating impeachment proceedings against Judge Chou Chan-chun (周占春) for his decision to release Chen following his indictment on Friday.

Huang Yung-tien (黃永田) was then taken by police to Zhongzheng First Police District for questioning and was sent by police to the Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office for further questioning three hours later.

“It was like my clothes and pants had been stripped off in the street,” Chiu said.

Tsai Chin-lung (蔡金龍), a police officer, was quoted by the Central News Agency as saying that Huang denied he intended to pull Chiu’s hairpiece off and said it fell off because of the jostling of the crowd.

Chiu has filed a lawsuit against Huang, CNA reported.
