Chou yesterday said that her allegations were based on investigative facts, dismissing Wang’s legal threats as an attempt to shift the focus.

“I must emphasize that the Republic of China is a democratic country, where people can freely choose to support either unification or independence and see their freedom of expression protected,” Chou wrote.

Nevertheless, taking money from a hostile nation to engage in propaganda on its behalf, or activities that could jeopardize national security, are considered crimes, she added.
