The Hong Kong government claimed on July 6, 2022, that mangoes imported from Taiwan tested positive for COVID-19, and they had ordered sellers to stop selling and destroy the infected mangoes.
Taiwan legislator Fan Yun told The Epoch Times, that the allegation was an ill intention to divide Taiwan society. Meanwhile, legislator Wang Mei-hui too pointed out that Hong Kong and Macao have become thugs of the Chinese communists regime, and the Chinese Communist Party(CCP)’s remarks have no credibility.
Another Taiwanese legislator Zheng Yun-peng believed, “Only if communications resume between the governments (China and Taiwan), will it be possible to stop the Chinese regime from bullying and suppressing Taiwan’s agricultural products.”
Fan Yun told The Epoch Times, that it was the sole intention of the CCP to separate the relationship of the Taiwan Government with farmers and fishermen. The Taiwan Government questioned, how mangoes could be infected with COVID-19, as there has never been a single case or example from any country at all.
The Democratic Progressive Party of Taiwan held a news conference on July 7, 2022.
Legislator Wang Mei-hui said, “The Chinese Communists Government is always suppressing Taiwan. From the pineapple to the mangoes, it has been ongoing. Even the packages which were said to have tested virus-positive, is mind-boggling to the entire international society. But of course, it would become a reason for CCP to suppress us. Hong Kong and Macao are now members of the CCP’s thugs. CCP’s remarks have zero credibility since it does not abide by international standards and rules.”
Taiwanese politician and Member of the Legislative Yuan, Cheng Yun-peng said that there are always standard channels to follow complaints in international trade. However, even if there are contracts, standard channels, or mechanisms to manage complaints, the CCP will simply ignore them. They can mouth their one-sided opinions or worse; poison the produce, then fabricate stories that Taiwanese products are poisonous.
If Taiwanese parties take the backdoor and become the regime’s political tools, then the entire Taiwan election system will fall into the hands of CCP’s loyalists.
