TAIPEI (TVBS News) — The Ministry of National Defense (MND) in Taiwan announced plans to increase their efforts in counter-intelligence on Wednesday (Aug. 2). This decision came in response to an ongoing investigation involving six naval and air force officers currently serving and a retired air force officer with the surname Liu. 

These individuals are suspected of leaking confidential information to China. Among the accused are officers responsible for the capital's defenses at the Army Aviation and Special Forces Command. Regarding the potential information leaks, the deputy secretary-general of the Presidential Office, Alex Huang, called the alleged act "disgraceful," remarking that those found guilty should face the harshest legal sanctions.

 

Following recent revelations, Huang also called for a significantly more robust public service system, stressing the need to enhance protections and security measures around sensitive information and national defense protocols.

The deputy secretary-general expressed his stern determination to avoid any similar incidents in the future. As investigations are underway, it's clear the fallout from the scandal will cause a rigorous reevaluation of security measures in Taiwan's military and government offices.

MND spokesperson Sun Li-fang also said: "In the face of the Chinese Communist Party's infiltration and absorption of our intelligence, our military has consistently strengthened counter-intelligence education in recent years to raise security awareness among officers and soldiers."
 

"Simultaneously, we have tightened the confidentiality of all operations, adopting proper damage control measures and linking up with the National Security Bureau to take joint defense measures, ensuring overall security and personnel righteousness," Sun added.
