The Control Yuan impeached the president of National Taiwan University (NTU), Kuan Chung-ming, who violated the law by taking a side job – writing media editorials. Today at 3 p.m., Kuan was charged and reprimanded by the Public Functionary Disciplinary Sanction Commission.
The Control Yuan said Kuan had broken the Civil Servant Work Act by regularly writing anonymous editorials on media when he was holding a position in the government, adding that he received around NT$650 thousand, annually.
However, Kuan denied the accusation, saying that he was not hired by the media outlet, and didn’t take any position. He stated that he had been invited to write material, and denied the accusation of being anonymous.
