CROSS-STRAIT TALKS: MAC’s Lai meets with Chen Yunlin

By Mo Yan-chih  /  Staff Reporter

Chang Ming-yu (張銘祐), the director of the group, said the heavy police presence was intent on “harming the Taiwanese people while protecting the Chinese.”

Tight security measures, meanwhile, attracted complaints from several guests, who dined at the hotel restaurant at noon, but were asked to leave at about 3pm when the hotel cleared the space for the Lai-Chen meeting.

“The police are damaging our national dignity by protecting Chinese officials. We were having lunch in the hotel, and the police have no right to want us out of the hotel,” a middle-aged woman surnamed Huang (黃) said as she was asked to leave.

Huang, who declined to give her full name, said she had lunch at the hotel with four other friends. About a dozen of police later asked them to leave and escorted them out of the building.
