Taiwan: Chairperson of Council of Indigenous Peoples interrogated in parliament

Members of Taiwan's parliament were highly suspicious about the proposed hundred million new Taiwanese dollars (approximately 26.4 thousand euros) observatory trip to Tibet in the 2013 annual budget report, presented by the Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) at the end of September 2012.

The Chairperson of CIP stated that the idea of the trip is to understand more deeply the issues about self-determination in Tibet. By doing so, he hoped drafting self-determination legislation for Taiwanese indigenous peoples would proceed more smoothly.
