New Exchange of Allegations in Wang Liqiang Case|澳媒指王立強遭利誘 蔡正元反咬綠營收買


New information has emerged in the case of self-professed Chinese intelligence operative Wang Liqiang. Australian newspaper The Age alleged that Kuomintang Deputy Secretary-General Alex Tsai and Chinese businessperson Sun Tianqun coordinated at the end of 2019 to have Wang record a video message where he would recant his earlier statements. In response, Tsai released an audio file of Sun speaking with a reporter from the newspaper where Sun said Wang told him he was paid by former DPP Secretary-General Chiou I-jen to accuse Chinese businessperson Xiang Xin.


Were you entrusted by the Kuomintang? No. He can return safely. The Democratic Progressive Party promised to pay him a sum of money. Was it Chiou I-jen? He said it was a DPP secretary-general named Chiou. I asked him for the full name, and he told me it was Chiou I-jen.

New information has emerged in the case of self-professed Chinese intelligence operative Wang Liqiang. Kuomintang Deputy Secretary-General Alex Tsai has released an audio recording between Sun Tianqun, a friend of China Innovation Investment Chairperson Xiang Xin, and a reporter from Australia's The Age newspaper. Wang previously claimed Xiang employed him as a Chinese intelligence operative, and Sun requested that Wang clarify the facts. Sun also said that Wang told him former Democratic Progressive Party Secretary-General Chiou I-jen sent an envoy to bribe him, resulting in the accusations against Xiang.

I hadn't heard these statements from Wang Liqiang, but I did ask the Investigation Bureau and the National Security Bureau and it seems like no one knew about this. I was asked by others to help Xiang Xin resolve his exit ban issues to allow him to return to Hong Kong so that his company can operate normally.

Tsai said he released this recording at a sensitive time, just several days before the 2020 elections, because he wanted to respond to The Age's allegations that he and Sun tried to get Wang to film a video recanting his earlier statements at the end of 2019. Tsai also released a video with Wang, although the dialogue did not refer to receiving money from the DPP, and Tsai said he never heard Wang mention this and it was Sun who claimed this. He added that Wang's statements cannot be trusted.

Meanwhile, Kuomintang vice presidential candidate Simon Chang traveled to Chiayi City to campaign for the KMT's legislative candidates. He described President Tsai Ing-wen's "Great South, Great Development" policy as a campaign tactic and an effort to buy votes.

President Tsai Ing-wen only came up with the "Great South, Great Development" plan after three years in office, and coincidentally right before the election. It is a plan to buy votes.

Chang said KMT's "six-pack" policy offers complete measures for the growth of the agriculture, tourism, and other industries in Yunlin, Chiayi, and Nantou. He added KMT presidential candidate Han Kuo-yu values sports, and will upgrade the Sports Administration to a ministry, add to sports-related budgets, and build sports centers if elected.



向心友人孫天群 vs. 世紀報記者(蔡正元提供錄音檔):「(受到過國民黨的委託嗎?) 沒有。他能夠安全回來,民進黨答應他給他一筆錢。(邱義仁呢?) 他說是民進黨邱秘書長,那時候我問他,他是跟我說叫邱義仁。」

選戰逼近、王立強共諜案再掀風波,國民黨副秘書長蔡正元公布向心朋友孫天群與澳洲媒體世紀報記者的對話錄音檔,指王立強誣陷香港中國創新投資公司主席向心是間諜,孫天群要王立強出面澄清,在對話中孫天群還指王立強稱是民進黨的邱義仁派人收買、才誣陷向心。

國民黨副秘書長 蔡正元表示:「我沒有聽過王立強這樣講,可是我問過調查局、國安局,好像也沒有人知道這個事,人家拜託我只是要幫向心,解除他限制出境,讓他回香港,公司能正常營運。」

蔡正元說會在選前敏感時刻公布錄音檔,主要是要回應世紀報報導稱王立強在2019年底,被蔡正元聯合中國商人孫天群利誘、拍影片改口。蔡正元也公布跟王立強的視訊影片,但對話中沒有提到有收民進黨的錢,蔡正元也說自己沒有從王立強口中聽到這個說法,是孫天群堅稱,蔡正元更直說王立強說的不一定可靠。
