Kaohsiung official, police in alleged cover-up probe


By Jason Pan / Staff reporterKaohsiung prosecutors yesterday summoned a city councilor, four police officers and nine other people for questioning as part of an investigation into alleged collusion and a cover-up of a drunk driving incident last year. Kaohsiung City Councilor Chou Chung-chan of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) allegedly pressured the police to cover up the incident, the Ciaotou District (橋頭) Prosecutors’ Office said. The cover-up reportedly involved high-ranking police officers, with a Nanzih District (楠梓) precinct chief surnamed Chen (陳) and three members of the precinct’s traffic division summoned for questioning over the case. Police arrived at the scene and administered a Breathalyzer test, which was reportedly passed by the purported driver, a woman. Prosecutors reportedly uncovered evidence pointing to Chou using his position to pressure Chen, who then allegedly instructed traffic division officers to go along with the cover-up of the incident.
