2012 ELECTIONS: TSU says judiciary is ignoring ‘1992 consensus’ charges

By Rich Chang  /  Staff Reporter

The Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU) yesterday said judicial authorities were neglecting charges filed by the party accusing President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) of committing treason by creating the so-called “1992 consensus.”

The TSU filed the charges with the High Prosecutors’ Office on Oct. 27 last year, saying that Ma and former Mainland Affairs Council chairman Su Chi (蘇起) had committed treason and forgery by creating the so-called “1992 consensus.”

TSU Chairman Huang Kun-huei (黃昆輝) and other party members went to the prosecutors’ office to protest that neither Ma nor anyone related to the case had been questioned.

Huang asked prosecutors not to ignore the case.

“Prosecutors, wake up. Prosecutors, wake up and investigate the case,” the TSU members shouted outside the prosecutors’ office in Taipei.

Huang also delivered a witness list to the office, asking prosecutors to interview former president Lee Teng-hui (李登輝), former National Security Bureau director-general Shi Hwei-yow (許惠祐) and others, whom he said could prove that the “1992 consensus” never existed.

Huang said the “1992 consensus” never existed, but that Ma conspired with China to create the consensus, betraying Taiwanese and the Republic of China (ROC).

The so-called “1992 consensus,” a term that Su admitted to fabricating in 2000, refers to a supposedly tacit understanding between the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) and the Chinese Communist Party that both sides of the Taiwan Strait acknowledge there is “one China,” with each side having its own interpretation of what “China” means.

Huang described Ma’s creation of the consensus as “the biggest lie in the history of the ROC and the most serious act of high treason.”
