General removed as Dongyin commander for alleged sexual harrassment

Taipei, April 2 (CNA) An Army major-general was removed from his post as the chief of the Dongyin Area Command over alleged sexual harassment. Maj. Gen. Yang Chia-chih (???) is accused of sexually harassing female Army officers in their quarters, after a night out drinking off-base. A complaint was filed against Yang for inappropriately touching female officers.
