Two Taiwanese indicted for violating national security laws

Taipei, Two Taiwanese members of a Chinese university alumni association were indicted by prosecutors Monday on charges of violating national security laws, according to the Taipei District Prosecutors Office.

The two suspects, identified only by their family names of Fu (?) and Li (?), are members of the Jinan University (JNU) Taiwan Alumni Association, where Fu currently holds the position of secretary-general while Li is the executive officer, prosecutors said.

Between 2009 and 2012, Fu and Li set up over a dozen rendezvous in a third country between people from Taiwan and Chinese officials, in an attempt to develop an organization serving the Chinese Communist regime.

The National Security Act prohibits the collection, consignation or delivery of confidential documents, pictures, information or articles, or the development of an organization for official use of a foreign country or China.

Jinan University, founded in 1906, is based in Guangzhou, in China's Guangdong Province.
