On July 27, Taipei City published its investigative report on the Good Liver Clinic vaccine scandal. The report detailed how Democratic Progressive Party lawmaker Kao Chia-yu demanded vaccines for the clinic on eight occasions over the course of 11 days at the end of May. Kao says the report is proof she didn't peddle influence and was only passing along a message from someone else. She then blasted the Taipei City Government for not clearly explaining its vaccine distribution principles and standards.
Taipei's Good Liver Clinic and Dianthus Clinic were caught illegally administering vaccines to people who are not from eligible groups a few months ago. On July 27, the Taipei City Clean Government Committee published its investigative report in full. The report detailed how Democratic Progressive Party lawmaker Kao Chia-yu demanded vaccines for the clinic on eight occasions between May 30 and June 9. Kao says the report proves her innocence.
Kao Chia-yu, Legislator (DPP)："We never put pressure on anyone or used our position to influence anyone, ever. So, I think the Taipei City Government is the one that needs to do some explaining."
Voice of Lin Si-hung, COO, Dianthus Clinic："This (report) lacks credibility."
Kao also fired back at the Taipei City Government, asking how Good Liver Clinic was able to acquire 1,000-plus vaccines for 100-plus people. She also asked who Taipei City Deputy Mayor Huang Shan-shan's friend "Ben" was. The Taipei City Department of Government Ethics says "Ben" was not a key figure nor the focal point of the investigation so his identity will not be disclosed.
Huang Ching-ying, Taipei City Deputy Spokesperson："The Taipei City Clean Government Committee has already published its investigative report online for everyone. Further details will be shared at a press conference this afternoon."
On July 22, an irate Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je told the Clean Government Committee that he'd had enough and told everyone to resign and go home because no one was doing their job. He also said everything would be disclosed online for everyone to see.
