Taiwan uni sets up scholarship in memory of Irene Chung

SIBU: Chang Jung Christian University (CJCU) in Taiwan has set up a scholarship in memory of Irene Chung (pic).

It has also designated Oct 28 as Campus Safety Day in her memory.

The university is also planning to name a boulevard on campus after Chung and install a metal sculpture in her likeness, said CJCU International consultant Datuk Thomas Tieng at a press conference yesterday.

Chung, a 24-year-old student of the university in Tainan, went missing on the evening of Oct 28.

She was found dead the next day and an arrested suspect confessed to the killing.

It was reported in the media that the suspect had admitted abducting and killing the student by strangulation and then disposing of her body. A day after the body was found, the police arrested a suspect named Liang.

Her parents, Desmond Chung and Ting Ching Ching, had flown to Taiwan on Oct 30 following news of her death to bring her remains back.

Chung was laid to rest at Nirvana Memorial Park here on Nov 21.

Chung’s family will be filing a civil suit against several authorities in Taiwan for their “misconduct and negligence” that led to her death on Oct 29.

Chung’s family lawyer, Yap Hoi Liong said at a press conference yesterday that if preventive measures had been taken, Chung would not have died.
