Taipei, May 5 (CNA) A National Taiwan University (NTU) student arrested for his alleged involvement in a demonstration outside a Taipei police precinct in April was released after being questioned Monday. Hung Chung-yen, a philosophy student, was arrested earlier in the day after he twice failed to answer summons for questioning on his involvement in a protest that laid siege to the Zhongzheng First Precinct building on April 11. After being interrogated by police, he was sent to the Taipei District Prosecutors Office Monday evening for further questioning that lasted for nearly two hours. Hung made no comment to reporters waiting for him outside the prosecutors office when he arrived. The Taipei City Police Department, meanwhile, released two videos shot when the arrest was made to rebut an Internet user's claim that no arrest warrant was presented when police took Hung in. The April 11 demonstration was held after the precinct chief allegedly went back on promises not to disperse protesters who remained outside the Legislative Yuan following a 24-day student-led occupation of the legislative body.
