TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The National Women's League (NWL) will be asked to pay NT$1 million (US$36,000) per month for refusing to move out of its headquarters in Taipei, as eviction proceedings continue.
Founded in 1950 by the wife of former Taiwan leader Chiang Kai-
In April, the Ill-gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee (CIPAS) ordered the group to immediately transfer ownership of its headquarters on Linsen South Road, Taipei City, to the national treasury, after a number of prolonged and tumultuous legal fights since 2018. The order came after the Supreme Administrative Court's rejection of an appeal by NWL against the decision.
The committee said the market value of the building was around NT$680 million (US$24 million). Slow progress has been made since then and NWL has refused to move out of the building.
LTN reported on Thursday (Sept. 30) that the National Property Administration is planning to charge the group NT$1.05 million per month as compensation and as part of the country's transitional justice program.
