(South China Morning Post, By Lawrence Chung)
Huang Jie, a New Power Party councillor from Kaohsiung, posted on Facebook Saturday asking for donations of supplies to be sent to Hong Kong protestors. Opposition Kuomintang councillor Chan Chiang-chun responded by saying that Huang’s post violated the newly revised national security law which prohibits Taiwanese donations of supplies and aid to “hostile countries”, including Hong Kong and Macau. Taiwanese police said they would let prosecutors determine whether Huang did indeed violate the law. <Accessed 2019-08-14>
