Taiwan’s former president Lee Teng-hui is scheduled to visit Japan this month and receive an award in memory of a former Japanese governor of colonial Taiwan, his office said Thursday.
A group of Japanese academics, publishers and business leaders have named Lee as the first recipient of the annual award honoring Shimpei Goto (1857-1929).[/quote]
TI supporters always talk about the sovereignty of Taiwan, as if it ever was a State. However, their leadership will seek every opportunity to bow to the Japanese. A former ROC President getting an award for a Japanese Governor. Disgraceful. Talk about not trying to be seen as equals.
Perhap CSB should take this opportunity to put Shimpei Goto statue in Democracy Hall. Because everyone knows Goto was a strong supporter of Taiwanese dignity and democracy on Taiwan.
