At a press conference yesterday morning, Tseng denied meeting Lee on Nov. 20.

“I made a speech at a Taiwan Province Government meeting in Nantou County on Nov. 20, which had been arranged in September, and I met Pai at the location by accident, but I did not meet Lee that day,” Tseng said.

“I ask the magazine to correct the report in its next edition or I will sue the magazine and Lin,” he said.

Meanwhile, Huang said in a statement that as prosecutor-general, he went to the Nantou District Prosecutors’ Office to oversee the Lee case and that his involvement in the matter was in accordance with the law.
