The judiciary must enforce the National Security Act and other applicable laws to end calls by China Unification Promotion Party (CUPP) founder Chang An-le to overthrow the government, said Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) lawmakers and legal experts.

Chang's open calls for China to annex Taiwan by military invasion and for Taiwan's military commanders to surrender to China are unlawful. He should be prosecuted because he is working as an agent for an enemy state, DPP Legislator stated.

Chang attended a political forum organized by the Chinese government, titled "Chinese Compatriots Across the Strait, Joining Hands to Realize the Chinese Dream," held in Shanghai in July.

DPP lawmakers and legal experts said that Chang's statements contravene the National Security Act. If Ministry of Justice officials and prosecutors do their jobs, Chang could be indicted for sedition and related charges and could be handed a minimum sentence of seven years in prison.
