Too-Chen allegations: Prosecutor-General resigns

Taiwan’s Prosecutor-General Chen Tsung-ming (陳聰明) has resigned after the Control Yuan (監院) approved a motion to impeach him for dereliction of duty. At a news conference on Tuesday, he said he resigned because he had no way of providing a good working environment to his investigators into the cases surrounding jailed ex-President Chen Shui-bian (陈水扁). KMT legislators had accused him of being biased in favor of the former president.

Chen Tsung-ming had been nominated by then president Chen Shui-bian in 2007, while the KMT opposed the nomination.
