Whatever happened to STRICTER background checks? Oh yeah, it’s, nonexistent here, apparently! And watch out, sexual predator on the prowl, in the, government office here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The Taiwanese Youth Rights & Welfare League Received a Call, Yi Hadn’t Responded, but Quit His Post on the Day of the Report, Got His Work Status Stripped, and, the DDP Halted His Party Membership Temporarily
Yesterday, the disclosures of the Taiwanese Youth Rights & Welfare League stated, that the former assistance spokesperson of the Tainan City government, Yi used his status as a lecturer, was suspected of sexually molesting, sexually harassing underage minors, that he was suspected of “power rape”. The Taiwanese Youth Rights & Welfare League stated, that as they’d been called, and after a month’s worth of closely investigating the matter, that it may not have been just that isolated incident, that in seven years, there may be as many as seven cases, with a total of, eight victims, even to the day before the press conference, the victims were still, coming out to the press about it, they’re not ruling out that there may be, more victims who hadn’t, come out yet.
Yi didn’t respond to the accusations yesterday, nor answered the calls from the press, and, on the day that the Taiwanese Youth Welfare League had formally filed in the report on the 31st, he’d not gone into Tainan City Government to work, and sent in his resignation already. The Green Party told, that Yi isn’t affiliated with any political party currently, that before everything gets cleared up, they’d, “halted” his status as a member of the party.
Yi worked with the youth development agency of the Department of Education from before, was also a lecturer for the children’s rights, worked long-term as an activist of rights, is quite active in the youth communities.
The C.E.O. of the Youths Welfare League, Lin told, that at the bottom of April the league received a grievance from a youth in Pingdong, that one of the classmates had been verbally harassed by Yi, asking his friend, “Do you want to take a bath with me together?”, the Child Welfare League originally thought that this was an isolated incident, but as they’d gotten into contact with multiple youth and children, they’d found, that it wasn’t, as simple as they’d imagined.
The press conference yesterday, played the three victims’ footages that they’d taped down, one of the victim described, that a few years back, because he was confused as to which major he should sign up for for his university years, he’d asked Yi, whom he’d met just once at a seminar, but he was taken to the hotel where Yi was staying, and asked about his sexual orientation, his dating history, to the point of being inquired if he’d ever, masturbated, and how frequently, etc., etc., etc., it’d made him feel shocked and thrilled at the moment.
The victim also told, that later, he’d learned among his own circle of friends, that there were, more than six members of his cohort who’d been, harassed by Yi, from the simple verbal harassments, to invitations to have sex, to “do you want to fellate me”, to the point of touching, opportune molestation, getting their genitals grabbed by him, that was when he was shocked to realize, that a lot of his friends had been molested, sexually harassed by Yi when they were still, minors, but, because Yi was the lecturer of the camp, someone whom the government invited, that’s why they’d, put up with hit.
Another victim also stated, that he was only a sixteen-year-old high school student in October of 2016, when he went to the education seminar hosted by the city of Taichung, that during the spare time of the lectures, the activities got assigned to become interactive with the lecturer, he’d asked Yi if he wanted to play the games with the members of the audience, Yi responded, “I’m much rather play with you instead”.
The youth division of the Department of Education stated, that they’d, pulled the suspect from the list of lecturers, and will sort through the activities that the suspected had lectured in, to reach out to the youths who were there, to see if they needed further assistance. And, the city government is also planning to tighten up the evaluations of the lecturers.
And this is still all, “treatment” of this, problem, because the city government FAILED to prevent, by doing a more thorough background check into this man’s pasts to find that he’d been involved in these cases of sexual molestation, improper impasses with younger people, this is the oversight of the local government, that’s caused the youths to become, victimized, and now, they’re just, patching up, this, HUGE hole, well, maybe it’ll, prevent cases like these from happening repeatedly from here on out, but, what OF the youths who’d already been, molested, huh? Who’s going to, PAY for that?
