Former National Security Council (NSC) secretary-general Jason Yuan (袁健生) and Minister of Justice Luo Ying-shay (羅瑩雪) both reported having assets worth more than NT$100 million (US$3.3 million), according to the latest anticorruption report released by the Control Yuan yesterday.

Luo has NT$66 million in savings, NT$13 million in stocks and funds, and NT$24 million in stocks held in trust, as well as NT$27 million in jewelry, antiques and other valuables, the report said.

Luo also had one property in China’s Shenzhen City, four houses in New Taipei City’s Shulin District (樹林) and one in Taipei’s Songshan District (松山), the report said.

Yuan reported he has NT$40 million in savings, NT$40.5 million in stocks and two houses in the US worth about NT$36 million. The report totals his assets at about NT$100 million.

Minister of Finance Chang Sheng-ford (張盛和) owns property in Taipei’s Shihlin District (士林), Hsinchu County’s Beipu Township (北埔), and also houses in Shihlin District and Greater Kaohsiung’s Meinong District (美濃), the report added.

Chang also has NT$22 million in savings held in New Taiwan dollars, US dollars, Australian dollars and British pounds, as well as NT$30,000 in stocks, the report said.

Executive Yuan Deputy Secretary-General Hsiao Chia-chi (蕭家淇) owns houses in Greater Taichung and Nantou Couty, has NT$4 million in stocks and photos and CDs autographed by more than 20 athletes and celebrities, including Taiwanese-American NBA star Jeremy Lin (林書豪), former Yankees pitcher Wang Chien-ming (王建民), actor Andy Lau (劉德華), singer Jay Chou (周杰倫) and actress Lin Chih-ling (林志玲).

In response to media queries, Luo yesterday said she owned property in China’s Shenzhen because her husband worked at Foxconn for many years, adding that it was not a secret.

She said her husband does not own a business and instead works for others, such as technology giant IBM Corp and Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, adding that most of his savings come from his salary and stocks.
