Communist or TIer? Not illegal!

The Constitutional Court declared unconstitutional article two of the Civil Associations Act (人民團體法) , which had prohibited any civic organization from supporting Communism or the splitting of the national territory (aka, Taiwanese Independence).

The court was asked to rule in a case
that started in 1998 where Taipei City had used this article to reject an application to establish the "Taipei City Waishengren Taiwanese Independence Promotion Organization" (台北市『外省人』台灣獨立促進會).
