Ma to face corruption inquiry

The pro-Green Liberty Times is reporting that KMT Chairman and Taipei Mayor Ma Ying-jeou is going to face an inquiry into his use of the special funds.

高檢署查緝黑金行動中心偵辦台北市長馬英九使用特別費疑涉不法案,檢方發現,馬英九將每月特別費直接匯入私人戶頭,涉公私不分;另外,經查部份特別費使用狀況,有部分領據疑不全,承辦檢察官侯寬仁認為有疑點待釐清,決定在本週二以關係人身分傳訊馬英九說明。

In sum, it says that the Black Gold Center, a special prosecutorial office opened to probe corruption cases in Taiwan, is going to pursue one against Ma's use of the special funds, just as it currently is against President Chen. It was discovered that the monthly allotment has been moved into his private account, and public and private monies are not clearly separate. Let me emphasize that placing the money into one's private accounts and not giving receipts is perfectly legal for up to half the money. Ma is probably not in violation of the law (Ma is slick and innately weak; I'll be shocked if there is anything more than garden variety hanky-panky, such as the purchase of the puppy he has already revealed to the media, a story I see no reason not to believe.)
