Round up

Thomas recommends this article in comments, and it's totally worth reading.

Moving on, this from ICRT:

The Taipei District Court has detained a member of the presidential staff on suspicion of violating the National Security Act.

Wang Ren-bing was detained on suspicion of giving or selling documents [to China] concerning the handover of power from the former D-P-P Administration to that of President Ma Ying-jeou in May.

Wang had worked at Presidential Office from 2001- first in the office of former deputy secretary-general Chen Zhi-nan before being transferred to the Department of Special Affairs in April of last year.
Taipei Times:
The Control Yuan yesterday impeached former secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC) Chiou I-jen (邱義仁) and former foreign minister James Huang (黃志芳) over the Papua New Guinea diplomatic scandal, which saw the country defrauded of US$29.8 million by two brokers during an attempt to establish diplomatic ties with the Pacific island.
There's also A closer look at Hu’s ‘six proposals’ and bad news if you buy free range chickens at traditional markets (ICRT):
A survey of free-range chickens sold in traditional markets shows that a
staggering 91-per cent are unfit for human consumption.

According to the survey - which was carried out by the Environment and Animal
Society of Taiwan - a mere 9-per cent of the nation's free-range chickens are
safe to eat .... and that 91-per cent are illegally slaughtered.
