Regarding United Daily News reports of “Navy made honest payments for Minehunter hull shedding? Audio recording exposes lie”, Navy Command sternly states that this report is absolutely false. The first hull demolding project of the first Minehunter was completed in Italy on September 27, 2016 (Intermarine). Our Ministry’s construction supervision team completed inspections on October 3 and signed a proof statement along with the project manager from Ching-fu Shipbuilding Co Ltd. (Contract No. PA02006L1 84PE); therefore there are traceable records. The media’s untruthful reports and deliberate embellishment has misled the public. The ministry reserves the right to legally sue and take said newspaper to court.
