KMT legislator Alex Tsai continued his verbal onslaught against Minister of Transportation and Communications Yeh Kuang-shih Thursday, saying the birthday party Yeh attended January 5 on Yangmingshan was not held at a tourist farm owned by Senao International Chairman Paul Lin as Yeh claimed a few days ago, but rather at the “Little Forbidden City" restaurant. Yeh has said that he was walking with friends on the mountain when they came upon the site, an incident which he termed unplanned and coincidental.

Tsai claimed that Chunghwa Post Chairman Weng Wen-chi, CAL Chairman Sun Hung-hsiang. General Manager of Taoyuan International Airport David Fei , China Airlines General Manager Lin Peng-liang and GTSM Chairman Wu Shou-shan were also at the ‘birthday bash’ for Yeh.

Over the past few days Tsai has alleged in Facebook postings and in public that Yeh was ‘getting too close’ to business relations between Chunghwa Telecommunications and Senao International and had even asked the chairman of Chunghwa, Lee Yen-sung, to retire after Lee failed to follow up on a suggestion to buy shares of Senao stock.

Unlike most telecomm operators in Taiwan, Chunghwa Telecommunications handles sales of mobile phones through Senao, an arrangement which reportedly limits the amount of profits it can make on the handsets.

Yeh has denied making any untoward suggestions to either of the two parties, saying that he talked with executives of both Chunghwa and Senao and offered possible solutions in order to iron out differences between the two firms.
