TSU accuses officials of forging ‘1992 consensus’

By Rich Chang  /  Staff reporter

Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU) Chairman Huang Kun-huei (黃昆輝) yesterday filed a lawsuit for the second time against three government officials in charge of cross-strait affairs, accusing them of forging official documents pertaining to the so-called “1992 consensus.”

Huang filed the first lawsuit with the Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office against Straits Exchange Foundation Chairman Chiang Pin-kung (江丙坤), Straits Exchange Foundation Vice Chairman Kao Koong-lian (高孔廉) and Mainland Affairs Council Chairperson Lai Shin-yuan (賴幸媛) in November last year, but the district prosecutors’ office in May decided to close the case without indicting any officials or taking further action.

Huang yesterday led TSU members to file the same suit for a second time at the district prosecutors’ office.

The TSU chairman added prosecutors did not investigate the case carefully, and their investigation might be influenced by politics, so he filed the lawsuit again.

“Prosecutors cannot not cover up those officials’ actions and Taiwanese cannot tolerate the forged 1992 consensus,” Huang said.

Huang, who alleged that the consensus never existed, accused the three officials of sending a “forged” letter on May 26, 2008, to China’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits to express Taiwan’s wish to “resume cross-strait negotiations on the basis of the 1992 consensus” despite knowing that the consensus had never been reached.

The district prosecutors’ office said it has received the case and is to launch an investigation into the matter soon.
