Taiwan Investigates The Dalai Lama Visit

Last month the Dalai Lama came to visit and comfort the victims of the last typhoon, being invited by local officials in the south of Taiwan.

It was a pure religious and humanitarian visit, full of compassion.

No words about politics were pronounced by him or his entourage.

His visit and meetings were even downsized.

But still, China was very upset, as the KMT, the ruling party in Taiwan.

I thought that story was done.

But no.

Today, we could read in the Taipei Times, that the government made an investigation to see if any government money was spent by the local administration which invited the Dalai Lama.

According the above article, expenses were covered by the Tibet Religious Foundation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the de facto representative office of the Tibetan government in exile in Taiwan.

Beside, the Dalai Lama made contributions too.

Why the government need to make such an investigation?

When other people are invited, did it do it?

Do all officials here are using public funds for public reasons only?

The government denied that this investigation was politically motivated.

I don’t know about you, but it seems hard to believe…

Or maybe I am thinking too much?

Yeah, maybe…

  1. The cynic in me says this is just another stunt by the government to divert from its other pressing problems. As usual.

  2. WassamattaU, KMT. Can’t stand the heat and coverage on your incompetency surrounding the Neihu MRT, Maokong Gondola, the Dunhua bicycle lane disaster and your abysmal, deadly bungling of the Morakot rescue and relief efforts? So, the unaccountable response is to conduct a witch hunt into the visit of the Dalai Lama. At least the DL cares, which is more than I can say for your fearless leader and his henchmen.

    Maybe we should conduct a witch hunt into why the KMT turned down Japanese and American offers of heavy rescue equipment and heavy-lift helicopters. Maybe if you had accepted, hundreds who died would still be alive today. And maybe there would have been a lot less suffering. Hmmmm.

    I might also suggest a witch hunt into Ma’s morbid, inappropriate humor. And his callous indifference.
