Taiwan spies

Yesterday, we reported about how Taiwan’s health ministry is looking to change the health insurance system of the country. This comes after a scam was unearthed in the country where Taipei hospital was showing lower patients than what it was actually admitting to meet the requirements to get government’s subsidies. Now, we can inform you that a new National Intelligence Work Act has been passed this week by the Legislative Yuan. This act once turned into law after necessary approvals will mean that the punishment terms for spies of the country will be changed.

It is a known fact that the relations between China and Taiwan are not the best at this point. So it means that there is a possibility of spies being found in the country who are from other countries. Now, we are not saying that all spies in the country are from China but they can be from any country. Talking about spies, there was a provision earlier to give minimum punishment to spies for 7 years. With the new act being passed, it will mean that the minimum punishment will be 10 years from now on.

It was revealed earlier that there was a scheme “wherein nominal foundations and travel agencies were helping provide potential Chinese visitors with fake letters of invitation”. Apart from the minimum imprisonment terms being changed, we can also reveal that the maximum imprisonment terms have also been changed. Now, a spy caught in Taiwan can get a maximum of life in prison. Apart from that, Taiwanese intelligence agents “found guilty of abusing their position could now face fines of up to NT$10 million”. Legislators said that the passing of this act means that the world can know that Taiwan is serious about defence of its democratic values.
