BEIJING FORGED DOCUMENTS OF TAIWAN'S INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES: ICHRD

    Hong Kong, May 28 (CNA) The Hong Kong-based Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy (ICHRD) of China criticized Beijing's Ministry of State Security Friday for forging documents of Taiwan's intelligence agencies to accuse exiled mainland Chinese pro-democracy activists of working for the Republic of China government.

    In a news statement issued Friday, the ICHRD said that there are several contradictions concerning the mainland's accusations in one of the documents that Zhang Zuhua, as a mainland Chinese pro-democracy activist, attended a Boston meeting in 2001.

    If the document were authentic, the Beijing authorities would arrest Zhang for assisting in Taiwan's espionage activities on the mainland and bring him to trial, the ICHRD said, adding that Zhang is not only completely free from trouble but also attended a signature campaign jointly sponsored by 67 scholars May 20 to throw support behind victims of the June 4 Tiananmen Incident.

    It was reported a day earlier that the mainland had obtained a batch of "classified documents" issued by Taiwan's National Security Bureau (NSB) and the Military Intelligence Bureau showing that Taiwan has maintained close ties with exiled mainland dissidents and intends to use their relatives to assist in espionage activities on the mainland, but Taiwan's intelligence authorities have denied the authenticity of the documents.
