“We suspect the Ministry of Culture of hiding information. We will not rule out also suing Minister of Culture Lung Ying-Tai (龍應台),” Tsai said.
Actress Tian Lu-lu (田路路) was among those called to testify.
“The evidence is clear, the courts can decide. If Pai wants to sue us, she can do so,” Tian said.
Singer Liu Yen-yen (劉燕燕) said: “When we went on the variety show, we were paid NT$10,000 each time, but had NT$1,000 deducted for taxes.”
“Each show had at most four or five veteran entertainers, for a total of at most NT$80,000. Pai submitted costs of NT$280,000 for subsidies. We do not see how Pai could have come up with that amount,” Liu said.
