Paris, June 7 (CNA) A young Taiwanese traveler was held by French customs officials after he was unable to produce hotel reservations and did not behave well, Taiwan's envoy to France, Michel Lu was quoted as saying. Anonymous officials at Taiwan's representative office in Paris quoted Lu as noting that citizens should behave properly when abroad, as their actions reflect upon the nation. Lu made the statement on Thursday at a tea party with a dozen Taiwanese expatriates and students in Rouen, a northwestern French city with a population of some half million, according to the officials. Lu said the young Taiwanese traveler could not provide hotel reservation documents for French customs officers, as the reservation had been canceled before departure. The traveler was later released after Taiwan's representative office intervened, providing the necessary documents. (By Emmanuelle Tzeng and Kuo Chung-han)
