Taiwan missile scientist dies under suspicious circumstances amid China-Taiwan tension

The deputy chief of Taiwan’s Defense and Research Wing was found dead in a hotel room on Saturday morning. Taiwan’s official Central News Agency has confirmed this. Oh Yang Lee-hing, deputy head of Taiwan’s military-owned National Chung-shan Institute of Science and Technology, was found dead in a hotel room in southern Taiwan on Saturday morning. The reasons behind his death are being investigated.

Yang Li-hing was on a business trip to the southern county of Pingtung. He took over as vice president of the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology earlier this year to oversee Taiwan’s various missile development projects. Taiwan’s military-owned organization is working to more than double its annual capacity this year to near 500. Because, in the face of the increasing military threat of China, the island nation is working towards rapidly increasing its military power.

In particular, Beijing has recently emphasized its so-called One China policy and is taking a tough stance towards Taiwan. China is currently conducting a massive military exercise besieging the island country in retaliation for US Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Meanwhile, Taiwan accused the Chinese military of copying the attack on its main island on Saturday. Nancy Pelosi is the first current president to visit Taiwan in 25 years.
