Taipei, July 8 (CNA) A senior Cabinet official apologized to the public Sunday for taking photos of a woman's legs with his mobile phone at a Taipei MRT station a day earlier.
Deputy Minister Chiou Jiunn-rong (???) of the National Development Council (NDC), however, described it as an "honest mistake," as he accidently took the photos while trying to call one of his friends.
He said he immediately deleted the photos and apologized to the lady in question.
Chiou made the comments after a netizen identified the NDC deputy as a suspect who allegedly took several photos of a woman's legs at the MRT Ximen Station, on an online discussion page, the Baoliao Commune (????).
The woman found out about the suspect's alleged misconduct and demanded that the person delete those photos, according to the netizen.
Meanwhile, Taipei police said that the victim had reported the case to a police station at Ximending and that the police will summon the suspect to clarify the accusation made against him. They said they were also checking CCTV footage from the station for further information.
